Shields of the carapace (A) and plastron (B) NORTHERN DIAMONDBACK TERRAPIN Malaclemmys terrapin terrapin Could you go for a hot bowl of turtle soup right now? How about some candied turtle eggs? If these delicacies don ' t appeal to you, you ' re part of the reason for the growing terrapin population. There are reasons for differing terminology describ- ing " turtles. " A tortoise stays strictly on land, his stump- shaped limbs being unsuited for anything else. A terra- pin, on the other hand, is a fresh or brackish water beast which supports whole industries with its valuable meat. All others are called turtles. Turtles have played interesting roles in folk lore through the ages. They have been worshipped by ancient civilizations, honored as the symbol of longevity and righteousness in old China, associated with virtuous women in Shakespeare and in Greek mythology, and depended on as determiner of Chinese rulers, who read cracks in scorched turtle shells for this information. Fossil remains suggesting that turtles are perhaps the oldest living animal have been found from pre-dinosaur days. Probably the largest land tortoise known, and cer- tainly the largest North American species, was " Testudo lourisekressmanni, " whose shell was over seven feet long. Testudo, we salute you! And to the Northern Diamondback Terrapin, who likes to bask on a sunny day, who hibernates in mud bottoms of streams and ponds, whose young are adept escape artists, and who, with man ' s waning desire for its highly favored meat, may live to over 40 years — STOLAT! — Drawings from the Chesapeake Biological Laborotory of the University of Maryland pomphlet, " Maryland Turtles " by Dr. Frank Schwartz. College Park ' Somewhere between Washington and Baltimore ... " Maps courtesy of the Office of University Relations, 2119 Main Administration Building. Maryland has been called " Little America " for its variety of land- scapes. Mountains, plateaus, river valleys and coastline; Maryland has them all. Productive farmlands and big cities have arisen from this geography. The University of Maryland has several campuses throughout the state, with probably the largest variety of course matter of any institution of higher learning in the state. It ' s main campus, the College Park campus, lies in the growing metropolitan area on the Eastern Seaboard. Located between the nation ' s capital and Baltimore city. College Park is convenient to both. Students can easily get down to Washington to enjoy its world famous attrac- tions. It was especially busy this last election year. Baltimore ' s strate- gically located harbor on the Ches- apeake Bay and its melting pot of cultural background makes it an increasingly noteworthy city. The organizations on page bottoms have contributed to the 1 977 Terrapin. We urge you to patronize them. Across Route One from the area around the Chapel is Harrison labo- ratory, more familiarly known as the greenhouse. Here plants from all over the world are propagated, grown, and experimented with. All are properly labeled with species name and other pertinent informa- tion. The horticulture, botany, ento- mology, and agronomy depart- ments all conduct research, classes, and experiments in Harrison lab. Research ranges from the diseases of plants to the effects of poten- tially toxic elements in an urban atmosphere on plants. Care is taken to bring tropical plants indoors for the winter and to keep the plants healthy by spraying for insects which might damage the plants. Simply touching one plant and then another can spread a plant virus. Those who work in the greenhouse must know much about the workings of plants. For most of us, though, the greenhouse is a place of serene enjoyment, an escape from the hub-bub of campus life 10 H . -1 1 • P ' ' 1 ' SHBi ' - ic ' 1 E i ISIS : s mm f — — t ft i B " - fflll f 1 ••• V i Compliments of Maryland Student Union. II In our investigation of the animal sources of human behavior we need not, fortunately, give critical attention to such of our qualities as seem exclusively human. The Illusion of Central Position, if it exists, may perhaps be one of these. But before we pass on to a concept more appropriate to our investigations, one paradoxical footnote should be added to the brief little story of man ' s grand illusion. The theory states that maturity is achieved by the acceptance of reality and the capacity to absorb each disillusionment and still keep going. Nonetheless the theory grants that should a man ever attain a state of total maturity — ever come to see himself in other words, in perfect mathematical rela- tionship to the two and one-half billion members of his species, and that species in perfect mathematical relationship to the tide of tumul- tuous life which has risen upon the earth and in which we represent but a single swell; and furthermore come to see our earth as but one opportunity for life among uncounted millions in our galaxy alone, and our galaxy as but one statistical improbability, nothing more, in the silent mathematics of all things — should a man, in sum, ever achieve the final, total, truthful Disillusionment of Central Position, then in all likelihood, he would no longer keep going but would simply lie down, wherever he happened to be, and with a long-drawn sigh return to the oblivion from which he came. — from Afficon Genesis by Robert Ardrey Atheneum Publishers, N.Y.; 1 961 by Literat S.A. Ardrey ' s thesis is that as babies, we experience the " Illusion of Cen- tral Position. " All revolves around us, and we think that we are indeed the center of the universe. As we grow older we find this is not so. Each human experience becomes a " Disillusionment of Central Posi- tion, " and if we were to succumb to our more existential instincts, we might indeed " lie down and return to the oblivion from which we came. " Most of us don ' t, though, so either we have not yet achieved the " final, total, truthful Disillusionment of Central Position " (though armory registration certainly approaches this), or we choose to ignore it, and so, we continue to continue. We " keep on keepin ' on. " Yet we seem to have achieved a remarkable ability to jettison the pent-up frustrations of each disillu- sionment against others — other humans, other life, other environ- ments. Many say that mankind has, had, and always will have a natural instinct for destruction. (Remember " Planet of the Apes " ). Dr. Louis B. Leakey, the late anthropologist, said in the October 28, 1973 " Washington Star, " " The nuclear bomb is not the only method of destruction. We encoun- ter daily thousands of events in which we are slowly destroying ourselves. Of course there is air and water pollution. Less known but equally important are noise pollution and the depletion of our natural resources. There ' s govern- ment pollution and ' mind ' pollution, both destroying our mental state. There ' s social pollution as incidents in our social lives cause inner tur- moil. Witness the increase in sui- 12 The Disillusionment of Central Position cides. If we let our environment slide like this, the end may come sooner than we think. In 25 years, there will be no oil left on the earth. In 35 years, the ozone layer might be gone and skin cancer would become rampant. In 50 years, our government might be gone. In one year, our minds might be gone. " R. Buckminster Fuller, called by many the ' visionary genius of our time, ' has written: ' Earth is a very small spaceship. We are all astro- nauts. Each human is a whole uni- verse . . . Coping with the totality of spaceship earth and universe is ahead for all of us. ' Our ' space- ship ' may be coming to the end of its voyage. Fuller has also pointed out that there are 28,000 pounds of explosives for every human being on earth. " As we go to classes, parties, work, and take exams, these prob- lems seem far removed. Ironically, they are closer than ever, because at the university, people attempt to solve environmental problems. Research related to energy sources and conservation, pollution and other environmental concerns goes on all around us. Packed into the confines of the buildings and minds on this cam- pus, a world of knowledge is stored and explored. Thoughts and princi- ples of universal concern are passed from seeker to seeker with hopes that persistent study will bring solutions to universal prob- lems. That ' s what this school, this world microcosm, is all about. It ' s a universe-ity. 13 16 17 merry klinefelter ..■ ' •» t ,v s ? ' ■. I ■i ll . s ::L ' i )9 Our Ever-Changing Surroundings Less immediate than solving the environmental problems of the v orld, but perhaps more intimate, is the problem of keeping up the environment of a university which started over 76 years ago. It seems the construction, tearing down, surveying and reconstruction of this campus will never end. When a new building is not begin- ning to appear, or an old one is not being rejuvenated, a water line will be sure to burst. 20 ,.

Meanwhile, parts of campus remain unlit. In these areas on a moonless night, an unescorted stu- dent can barely see ten feet in front of her. " The geniuses who started this university built it right on a flood plain, " a botany professor might chuckle. A student caught in the rain wearing open-toed shoes and socks grumbles at the same thought. But for all its inaccuracies of planning, construction is a sign of progress — and progress we must. The bulldozers and cranes and whistling construction workers remain an integral part of this cam- pus. 22 23 The Student Union Our environment is not just con- fined to plants, animals, water, air, and such. According to Webster ' s, environment can be defined as " all the conditions . . . and influences . . . affecting the development of an organism. " We are that organ- ism; and our social atmosphere must also be considered as a major influence. In fact, it is our social environ- ment which, we would presume, most students would consider the vital port of the college. One place on campus is solely devoted to sat- isfying this social need. That place, of course, is the Student Union. 24 Root Photographers 25 How many places on campus can qualify for the name Student Union? A good number for sure. The libraries are filled with students studying, the dorms are filled with students living. U.S. 1 has them rec- reating, neighboring businesses have them working and, of course, the dining halls have them eating. But the only place where we can do all without stepping outside is in that complicated structure on Cam- pus Drive worth the words ' Student Union ' etched in its facade. And the words don ' t lie. Here united under one roof ore students living, studying, sleeping, recreating and doing everything else. Few truly appreciate the ser- vices and opportunities available to them. The Student Union is as integral a part of many students ' environ- ment as the air they breathe. 26 :: :W. s.; .

It ' s a place to study peacefully, to sing and moke music, or to swing through the trees. 30 POWERS GOODE: Fine Men ' s Clothing , ,mM ' ' f " ' ' ' . ' n iS;e i V Root Photogrophers 31 The mall is one of many places on campus to release the energies of commitment, to dispel the anxie- ties of classes and exams, or just to shoot the breeze. In an environment such as the University, where pressures are great and expectations are high, outlets for play are vital to remain- ing a healthy person. No amount of determination, drive or desire can override the need you don ' t grow out of — the need to play. 32 11 i l i m w i i mini, Student Government 33 As well as providing musical tapes, films, and reading for entertainment, the university libraries have shelves of volumes of the best resource we hove — recorded knowledge. The libraries, with their col- umns reminiscent of an ancient past, remind one of times when few privileged people had the skills even to read and write. They remind one of a distant past, when conquerors enslaved and destroyed their less aggres- sive fellows; when the library of the city of Alexandria, flourish- ing capital of a great empire, was burned to the ground. We will never know what knowledge was destroyed along with it. wiii. jf 34 35 Today, in this country at least, you ' re in the minority if you don ' t hove the skills to at least read and write. In fact, the volume of human knowledge is increasing so rapidly that it has been said that if we deplete the earth ' s resources, and thus its ability to support human life, or if the sun runs out of gas, or if some other catastrophe befalls us, that human knowledge will have progressed to a point where travel to another planet will be pos- sible. It has been said that we will be able to colonize a new world. One wonders just how distant this future will be. 36 Student Government k 37 teri daubner 38 39 Forty hour work weeks, movies at night, and weekend trips to the beach or mountains. This is what the college student must give up when he regretfully sulks back to school to continue his studies. But one small item still remains to be accounted for on the agenda. That small item is known as, alas, mov- ing in. The end of summer comes too abruptly for most people. Just when the weather becomes less humid and it ' s wonderful to be out- side, the realities of the upcoming semester are upon us. There ' s tui- tion to pay, books to buy, courses to get, and of course, moving in. The end of summer beckons the dusting off of foot lockers and the From One Environment to Another gathering of fall clothes out of the mothballs, even though the temper- ature ' s still in the 90 ' s. The time has come to leave behind the carefree partying of summer and to begin the serious business of school. The transition between the two is occu- pied by a unique process called moving in. The modus operandi of moving in involves the coordinated efforts of many. Friends aid in the transfer of furniture and stereos. Girlfriends boyfriends offer advice regarding interior decorating. Parents help, brothers and sisters help. But the whole process has one goal: to set up an environment in which the stu- dent con survive the activities of the months to come. 40 Student Government 41 A Personal Environment 42 Center StciioN TO;; vusw • OUT ...,i 43 «, " JS5M., igpP 44 45 Administration Dr. Ulysses Glee, student aid director, with the chancellor Dr. Wilson H.

With this membership more than 30,000 full time undergraduates are eligi- ble to vote and run for office in the student government. SGA is the parent organization for student groups and extra-curric- ular activities. The SGA receives money for funding these student organizations through the student activities fee. These funds are used under student direction for funding projects which serve the needs of the student body. Of special concern to the SGA this year is a day core center for students and faculty. SGA is also developing a legal aid office that is effective in dealing with the legal problems some students may face. The SGA would also like to publish a newsletter making their decisions and activities more well known among the student body. A " whole earth " teacher rating catalog is another of this year ' s projects. Through the SGA students have a way of expressing themselves to those within the University Adminis- tration.

The Ter- rapins finished a strong second behind Clemson in the Atlantic Coast Conference. When the Terps lost their first six games, some observers predicted a long spring. But with a one-two pitching punch of Bob Ferris and Mike Brashears and the hitting of Darrel Corradini and Steve Fratta- roli, coach Jack Jackson ' s crew went on a 12-1-1 tear, and sailed through the rest of the regular sea- son without much difficulty. For the first time in the four-year history of the ACC baseball tourna- ment, Maryland advanced past the first round with a tight 10-9 win over Duke. The Terps then finished second in the four-team double- elimination segment of the tourney. Even though Ferris was drafted by and signed with the California Angels, and even though the aesth- etics of Shipley Field were dam- aged when the athletic department removed the wooden bleachers from the concrete stands, Maryland baseball appears back on its feet, ready to odd to the ACC titles it won in 1965, 1 970, and 1971. 50 POWERS GOODE: Fine Mens Clothing ' I ' ik l imlHi 1 976 Maryland Varsity Baseball Results Terps Opponent East Carolina 3 2 East Carolina 3 4 Coastal Carolina 6 3 The Citadel 5 3 The Citadel 8 Clemson 6 5 Richmond 1 n George Washington 2 24 S,E, Massachusetts 1 S.E, Massachusetts 6 13 Brockport State 8 Brockport State 8 7 Navy 8 Wake Forest 4 4 N.C, State 1 10 Virginia Tech 1 4 Duke 8 Duke 3 2 Virginia I 6 Howard I 1 N.C.

Maryland ' s vic- tory put an end to Duke ' s 25 con- secutive dual-meet win streak. Although Duke ' s Robbie Perkins, who was the A.C.C. ' s individual champ, finished first in the race, Maryland was able to win the meet. Maryland runners Mike Wil- helm and Dave Cornwell finished second and third respectively, while another Maryland runner, Peter Gleason, came in fifth.

Coach Bud Beardmore ' s troops had won all their previous encoun- ters before meeting Cornell, includ- ing easy triumphs over Brown and Navy in the earlier rounds of the NCAA playoffs. Led by seniors Frank Urso, Mike Farrell and Ed Mullen, Maryland opened the season with a shaky 12-10 overtime win at North Caro- lina and then reeled off impressive victories over Princeton, the Mt. Washington club, UMBC and the Australian All-Stars. 54 Newhouse Amoco Service: tune-up • brake work • alignment • repairs • 474-96 1 6 Virginia appeared likely to burst the Terp bubble when the Cavaliers canne from four goals behind in the final minutes to send the game into extra periods. The Terrapins mirac- ulously recovered, however, and scored eight goals in overtime while not allowing Virginia a shot on goal. Maryland ' s only other rough season game was a rainy 16-14 conquest of Washington Lee, sandwiched in between routs of Navy, Army and of course Johns Hopkins.

Though most athletes were exhausted from the rigors of Mont- real and the conditions were ham- pered by rain, there were a number of outstanding performances by both squads. The Soviets, led by an outstand- ing women ' s team, captured the meet for the tenth time in twelve years, with Ludmilla Bragina setting the world record in the 3,000 meter run and their mile relay team also breaking the world mark. Maryland freshman Paula Girven represented the USA in track. Excellent performances by gold medalists Mac Wilkins (discus), Ed Moses (400 meter hurdles) and Arnie Robinson (long jump), high- lighted the men ' s portion for the USA. 58 1 59 Quick Kicks «• J8f w:j ' ■■■ ' Mr :■ 1 i.- i : 3 ' 1 b: : " i 7 - • 60 Athletic Department The Maryland Soccer team just made the NCAA Southern Regional last season, only to lose to the Howard University Bisons, 3-1. The key game of the season was the road match vs. Clemson University, the number one ranked team in the country. In that game, the Terps stunned the Tigers with a 1-1 tie. Heavily favored Clemson had led with just five minutes to go and 6000 fans sounded like 60000. Then, senior halfback Gonzalo Soto took the ball and masterfully dribbled past two Tiger defensemen to face the goalie. Soto faked to the right and then left-footed the ball into the open side of the net. That goal put the Terps in the playoffs. Row 1 : Kenan McCoy, Claude England.

In the beginning there was rain. Then there were losses. And finally there were wins. That ' s the only way to describe the season for the Terrapin field hockey team. The fourteen game schedule was rap- idly reduced to ten as rain muddied the field to an unplayable state for the first four games. Those matches were never played. Unfortunately, the stickers started playing after every one else had a few games under their belt. The inexperienced Terps fell victim to superior teams in the next five contests. However, a 5-0 triumph over American University started the Terps on a five game winning streak, ending the season with an impressive 4-0 shutout of Mary Washington. The late season surge enabled the stickers to go to a post-season tournament, but were easily defeated by second-ranked Ursinus in the first round of the tournament.

The Terp ' s winning basketball team had six players splitting three and one-half scholarships, includ- ing two talented freshmen, Jane Conolly from Lewisdale and Krystal Kimrey from North Carolina. 90 Basketball and all women ' s sports owe much to Title IX The track team was pleased to have with them freshman Paula Girven, an Olympic jumper and an athletic scholarship recipient. The volleyball team again, for the third consecutive year, traveled to the National tournament after winning the Regionals. And talent was dis- played by women in every single sport. In all, 41 women were awarded a total of 25 scholarships in this, the first year of such a program. This first year was only part of a three-year phasing-in period in which a total of 65 scholarships will be awarded. Next year, 21 grants will be given to deserving women, and 1 9 the following year. The breakdown of recipients in this initial year was as follows: seven each in field hockey, lacrosse, and volleyball, nine in track, six in basketball, and five among gymnastics, swimming and tennis. As far as the decisions on schol- arships recipients. Women ' s Ath- letic Director Chris Weller said she wanted to meet the needs of the people already on the teams and to award the grants to players who could enhance the team ' s perform- ance. And it seems that she suc- ceeded. — Sandy Goss 91 Spikers Win Eastern Regionals Front row: Sand Miller (Monager), Mory Duckworth, Barbara Yakely, Monica Mintz, Joyce Hinkleman, Debbie.

The task facing Coach Barbara Drum was unenviable. Much of her senior-laden squad fronn 1 975 had graduated and the 1 976 crew was both small and inexperienced. But skillful plays led by Barb Yakely highlighted the year ' s games as the team battled into the national tour- nament for the second year in a row. The Terps finished the regular season with an inspired win on the road at Georgetown University, boosting the season ' s mark to 19 wins and 1 1 defeats. Georgetown kept close all through the match only to have Terps Barbara Bunting and Carol Brice dominate plays later in the game. This win set the stage for the Terps ' dominance in the Maryland State tournament. The biggest surprise for Coach Barbara Drum and her troops came at the Eastern Regionals in late November. They won. Few had expected the Terps to take their first regional title ever. But they did with magnificent teamwork. Coach Drum cited Carol Brice and Mary Duckworth for their outstanding leadership as the team battered Slippery Rock, Delaware, and Cort- land State twice to win the prize. Winning the Regionals was the highlight of the season however, as the spikers failed to make much noise at the National tournament in Austin, Texas. They could only manage one victory.

Several contestants chose to spend the race basking in the midday sun or running around in cir- cles, but most races provided thrills and spills reminiscent of the Indianap- olis 500. Testudo was especially proud of his kinfolk. 99 The scene in parking lot V was chaotic at 5:00 p.m. However, out of chaos came order as the parade started down narrow Lehigh Rd. at the prescribed time of 5:30 p.m. From the twelve floats which entered the competition, Phi Sigma Kappa ' s and Kappa Alpha Theta ' s entries impressed the judges most of all. The procession wound its way along Regents and Stadium Drives to its conclusion on Denton Beach. The University Marching Band provided music along the route. The parade may have been a bit disappointing, but the beer seemed to drown out whatever sor- rows there were. 100 Maryland Book Exchange - ' . B OW L ■ ' iiS i 9H Athletic Department 101 There were thirty kegs of beer, at least 800 party-goers, and a spirit which seemed to guarantee " keep- ing the bowl rolling " for the follow- ing day ' s football game. The combination pep rally bon- fire mixer took place on a some- iwhat chilly Friday evening along the ex-overflow parking area known as Denton Beach. Head football coach Jerry Clai- borne promised a victory over Wake Forest and introduced sen- iors on the team. The marching band and cheerleaders psyched up the crowd for the game. The evening concluded a week of varied activities which ended with an edgy but satisfying victory over the Deacons. 102 103 -i 104 - congradudtion 105 Abe Eugene Abelo Biology Zoology Journalism Randi C Agetstem Special Education John M.

Origi- nally, proceeds from the marathons were donated to the Muscular Dys- trophy Foundation, but for the past four years they have been given to the American Cancer Society. Last year ' s marathon drew 5,000 spectators to Ritchie Coli- seum, all eager to watch 46 deter- mined couples dance, march, strut and wheeze against cancer. A whopping $40,000 was collected for the cause. Rest up, because you ' re all invited next year! 182 4 A 1 m ' i JL. wSm B a JktI uI i V imm l KLaJ m " J " m • ' ■: ' - » ' Bl Vegetarian Cooking In front of the Student Union, students ore often drown to an area under the trees where Hari Krishna dispense fruit and invita- tions to their vegetarian cooking class. There, Hari Krishna welcome the regulars and the curious with dis- cussions of the higher plane of con- sciousness which can be obtained by adopting a vegetarian diet. The talk is followed by food. A Dohl consisting of beans and vegetables, followed by saffron rice, buckwheat cakes, cauliflower fried with chick pea flour, chick peas with spices, milk candy, and tammarond tea make a delicious meal. 183 Hal B L K ' f- ' 1 bp 1 oween Lincoln 185 Macbeth 4; jgl mji . m Aw 9 j 1 fc ' iSr ' I H ' t ' ' ' - ' " ■jjjS ji H A • _ m Brl Pi l . f •■ norman pruitt 187 Hot Tuna !88 ■ ' -■ ■, ' ? , ; .: . wi ■■ ' ' ' % ' %-= - r ! r , _j6 1- ' ' ■ ' ■ V i rse } ' • Vf ' - - ..

He spoke of the exploitation which still oppresses Black people, and from which organization is their only release. Carmichael suggested song lyr- ics as an effective form of commu- nication to organize people. The enemy must then be identified and fought with a carefully planned course of action if oppression of Blacks is to cease. Carmichael defined this enemy as " racist impe- rialism, " and said that to overthrow it. Blacks must work from without and within. Realizing that this procedure takes time, Carmichael emphasized that the speed with which victory comes is not the major issue. Strug- gle is. The only way for Blacks to progress, he said, is to realize that the struggle is a constant one, and to join in combating exploitation. 190 Research with hallucinogenic drugs and the " serene stupidity " of Hinduism are behind Tinnothy Leary now. Last October he spoke futuris- tically about living in space. Leary ' s new philosophy pictures planets as mere way-stations in future human space travel. Space is man ' s natural habitat, says Leary, and the radical technological developments of recent years should soon convince the rest of us of this fact. " I just want to make you think, " Leary said. " This is my job as a phi- losopher.

Suppose that the sort of ice we skate upon and put into highballs - what we might call ice-one -is only one of several types of ice.

New York ' 1963 the 1975 ice-nine award On behalf of the next 10,000 generations of humans to inhabit Planet Earth, we would like to bestow this little snowman upon the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) of the United States of America, which, in the name of " clean energy, " has already overseen the produc- tion of at least 400,000 tons of highly radioactive nuclear waste, now in storage at various locations in the U.S. There are many rare substances to be found in the AEC ' s highly spe- cialized " garbage, " but any one of them, taken alone, gives an idea of the AEC ' s remarka- ble achievement and demonstrates just how much the Commission deserves this year ' s Ice- Nine Award: one-millionth of one gram of the isotope Plutonium 239, for example, can cause lung cancer . , . one-thousandth of a gram will kill you (for comparison, an aspirin tablet equals one gram) . . . in a year ' s time, a single nuclear power plant creates about 6,000,000 grams of Plutonium 239. Then, of course, consider Iodine 1 29, with a " half-life " of 1 7 million years — if ingested, it collects in the thyroid gland and remains there forever, bombarding surrounding tissues with cancer-producing radiation. One might also mention Strontium 90, which accumulates in bone cells, and likewise Cesium 1 37, which emits radia- tion capable of penetrating anything short of a thick lead shield. The Ice-Nine Award also shows our deep appreciation for the AEC ' s support of the Price- Anderson Act of 1957, a Federal law that restricts an electric power company ' s liabilities for a large-scale nuclear accident. A study commissioned and later suppressed by the AEC in 1965 showed that a major nuclear accident would kill 45,000 people immediately, seri- ously injure another 1 00,000 and would cause roughly 1 7-billion dollars damage. The AEC was talking about relatively small atomic power plants back then — a radiation leak of only one percent from the Barnwell Nuclear Fuel Plant in South Carolina (scheduled to begin operation in 1976) would permanently poison over 30,000 square miles of land, causing perhaps 10-billion dollars damage. The Price-Anderson Act limits liability for such a catastrophe to 560-million dollars, most of which would come from the Federal government. There remains the inevitability of less " serious " radiation — besides emissions from the plant itself, there will be a slow, constant leakage from truck and trains carrying nuclear materials to and from the Barnwell facility (one such shipment will originate in Portland, Oregon, following a route not yet publicly known). Finally, we offer one more reason why the Atomic Energy Commission has undoubtedly earned its silent snowman; while responsibility for low-level waste lies with the increasing number of power companies producing it, the AEC has thoughtfully built enormous storage tanks for high-level wastes, locating them in unpopulated areas of the United States. The grim irony is that nothing, absolutely nothing can yet be done to deactivate what waits patiently inside the AEC ' s " trash cans " ; no chemical or physical process has been devised to reduce its toxic strength, which will lost for the next 250,000 years, and none of the dumping schemes so far proposed (ranging from huge missiles shot toward the sun to burial at sea) offer much hope of success. The first accident at the AEC ' s main storage center near Hanford, Washington, occurred in 1 973, when 1 1 5,000 gallons of liquid nuclear waste escaped into the soil (the leak went undetected for 51 days) ... the second leak at Hanford happened in April of 1975 . . . according to estimates by the Federal government, by the year 2010 there will be 15 rail- road cars moving radioactive materials somewhere in the U.S. at any one time, vulnerable to sabotage, theft, or derailment . . . the Oil, Chemical, and Gas Workers Union in 1975 warned of safety violations in an Oklahoma plutonium plant (twenty of 39 charges were substantiated by Federal investigators) ... in 1974, an airport cargo-handler in Houston, Texas, burned his leg when a medical shipment of Molybdenum 99 leaked aboard a plane . . . two nuclear reactors were half-built before the AEC found out about earthquake faults beneath them . . . It is simply a matter of time. 240 reprinted from the 1 975-76 North Face Catalogue with permission of the North Face, I 234 5th Street, Berkeley, California 947 1 An equally powerful piece could probably be written in favor of nuclear power. The AEC is no longer in existence; it was reorgani- zed into the ERDA, (Energy Research and Development Agency) and the NRC (Nuclear Regulatory Commission). These organizations now have authority over energy matters. But the fact remains that the problems mentioned in the " ice- nine " award are by no means solved. Spills and accidents still occur too frequently, (an explosion at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington last August contami- nated eight people), no way to dis- pose of the dangerous wastes has yet been devised, and nuclear power plants are springing up oil over the country. In addition to the obvious prob- lems involving nuclear waste, ques- tions about the viability of nuclear power as a source of energy can be raised. Fissionable material is not an everlasting resource. Like fossil fuels, it is finite. And our growing population uses increas- ingly more energy. In discussing the Earth ' s energy resources for Scientific American magazine, M. King Hubbert said the world ' s consumption of fossil fuels during the past 1 10 years has been about 19 times greater than it was during the last seven centuries. Once fossil fuels are used as energy sources they are destroyed. The peak of world exploitation is estimated to be the year 2000. After about 60 years, the height in consumption will decline as oil and coal become increasingly harder to find and extract from the Earth. The need for an alternate source of energy is obvious. The United States ' planned expansion of nuclear power plants in coming years indicates a reliance on nuclear sources of energy. Given the finite supply of fissiona- ble material and the lack of any provision for safe disposal of lin- gering wastes, is nuclear power the best solution? Current research at DM explores possibilities for safer alternative energy sources. 241 An alternative: thermonuclear fusion As last winter ' s fuel shortage proved, there is an ever-growing need to find new sources of energy. One of the possibilities presently being explored is thermonuclear fusion. Fusion of hydrogen atoms is how we get energy both from the sun and from hydrogen bombs. When hydrogen gas is heated to very high temperatures, the elec- trons are stripped from the atoms, making them ions. These ions, col- liding at high energy, fuse and form helium. In the process, enormous amounts of energy are released. A laboratory set up on campus has been studying controlled fusion by using an electron ring accelera- tor to increase the rate of ion colli- sion. Accelerator Research Group member Dr. Martin P. Reiser is working along with other faculty members and graduate students on the project. The group hopes to prove the feasibility of the electron ring accelerator in three years. Even if they do, it would take another five to six years to develop the process into a usuable form for industry, nuclear physics and chem- istry research. Biomedical applica- tions such as cancer therapy may be also possible. Energy produced by controlled fusion would have a major advan- tage over present nuclear reactors, which are based on fission rather than fusion. Fission creates danger- ous, long-lived radioactive iso- topes. The storage of this waste has been a major problem. Energy from fusion produces less waste and is a more pollution free method. The electron ring accelerator lab- oratory itself is housed temporarily in the quonset huts across from the Institute of Molecular Physics. Hopefully, with an addition onto the Energy Research Building next year, the lab research can be diver- sified. The lab and the research group are being supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation. — Joan Rodgers Journey to the world ' s 2nd largest Dr. David A. Goldberg is Virgil, and in the depths of his inferno lies the second largest sectored iso- chronus cyclotron in the world. Once nicknamed " MUSIC " (for Maryland University SIC — the name didn ' t stick), the cyclotron is used by the materials research lab, in experimental physics departmen- tal research, and for cancer research. The cyclotron conducts a scatter- ing experiment by accelerating nuclear particles and hurling them at an unknov n substance. The manner in v hich the particles are reflected off of the substance reveals properties v hich may help identify the unknown substance. Goldberg likens the procedure to locating a barn in a fog. If the fog is so thick you can ' t even see the barn, you still might be able to tell where it is, how long and how high it is, even whether it is made of wood or steel, by throwing rubber balls at it and observing how, or if, they come back to you. In the cyclotron, it is the machine rather than an arm that is hurling particles toward the unknown. A magnetic field hold ions in place while the cyclotron pushes them in increasingly larger circles. Then they are bent, focused and chan- neled by other magnets toward the " barn, " the unknown substance. The particles have now traveled from the cyclotron through the beam transport system to the scat- tering chamber. From there the dis- semination patterns are conveyed by electric cable to computers which analyze the information. They also print out the nature of the particles and energies which result from the scattering experiment. Weekly tours of the cyclotron ore open to the public. It ' s a fasci- nating journey. — Carol Strohecker SJO±AK £n£RGy. ■ From presidential reviewing stands to chicken house heating, solar energy is rapidly becoming an important factor in our daily lives. As a direct result of the current energy crisis (particularly fossil fuel supply depletion), these concepts are being put into practice more every year. Much research and testing of solar energy use is currently con- ducted on campus. A solar energy lab is being designed and built by members of the Mechanical Engineering Department. Dr. Kirk Collier and Dr. Redfield Allen are working together to develop the lab. It will be used primarily to run various experiments and also effi- ciency tests on solar collectors. These are devices which trap and collect the sun ' s radiation. When completed sometime in the summer of 1977, the lab will be open to both the campus and to surrounding communities. Homeowners and businesses will be able to test the efficiency of individually owned solar collectors. In the Electrical Engineering Department another type of solar energy research is being conducted on a new type of solar cell. Dr. H. C. Lin is chairman of the group working under a three year grant from the National Science Foundation. They ore trying to per- fect an ion-implanted solar cell. This device has been implanted with ions by a small cyclotron. The usual method uses 1000 C fur- naces to implant the semi-conductive impurities necessary to make the cell work. The new cyclotron ion-implanter eliminates wastes from the fur- naces and the cell itself becomes more efficient. Solar cells are constructed mainly of silicone wafers. Electrons strike the impurities which have been imbedded in the silicone waf- ers and then bounce back, releasing the energy necessary to gen- erate a current. The sun ' s energy is vast and limitless at least for the next million years. It is clean and does not produce wastes which may threaten our continued existence on Earth. It shines steadily and is abso- lutely free. All we have to do is harness its energy. — Janice Knestout 24; The Viking Has Landed Seven years to the day after Man ' s first walk on the moon, the Viking I spacecraft landed on Mars. President Ford named July 20 " Space Exploration Day " in honor of the events. Scientists throughout the country worked to put the Viking on Mars, and people all over the world awaited communica- tions which would help answer age old questions about Mars. Researchers at DM played their part in analyzing the data sent back by the Viking. Chemistry pro- fessor Dr. Cyril Ponnaperuma worked in a lab on campus where results sent from Viking ' s instru- ments were interpreted. He said there may once have been life on Mars, but if so it has been gone for a long while. He offered the heav- ily oxidized atmosphere as evi- dence, saying that anything organic would quicWy break down in such an atmosphere. Much of Ponnaperuma ' a association with NASA involved questions about the origin of life, life beyond earth, and extraterrestrial intelligence and communication. Physics department member Dr. Herbert Frey sought a common evolutionary pattern between Mars, our moon, and Earth. He fol- lowed a four-stage evolutionary scheme based on the internal heat of the planet. The planet ' s internal heat is what drives evolution. The smaller the planet the faster it cools. The moon cooled off and thus evolution was stopped in the third stage of the planet ' s life. Mars is about half way in size between the moon and earth. Frey theorized that it may be half way between them on an evolutionary scale also. He emphasized the importance of space exploration because the study of other planets may help us understand the Earth ' s early history, during which it was so dynamic that early geologic records were destroyed. A round trip to Mars would take about a year and a half. Frey guessed this century will close before a human is sent to Mars. Dr. Harry Rose, of the chemistry department, was concerned with geological analysis of Mars. An instrument on the Viking detected what elements are present in the rocks and soil on Mars and radioed the information back to Earth in 14 minutes. Rose found evidence of chemical weathering on Mars. He said that by 1 984, there may be a vehicle or rover on Mars which could collect samples. But to send a person to Mars would increase the cost a hundred fold. Dr. Rose esti- mated. A aBtiiwBer;-.. :: . U » " .- " _■■ ,« . ...A.

The insecticide, used primarily overseas for agricultural pest control, was called kepone. Kepone and DDT are similar in chemical structure, but kepone was found to be useful against DDT resistant insects. Its effective- ness increased the demand for kepone. In 1966, Allied began producing kepone at Hopewell, Virginia, just 1 8 miles south of Richmond. The permit application filed by the company at that time said that kepone production would be tempo- rary. In 1974, when the demand for kepone continued to rise. Life Science Products took over the production for Allied Chemical. Life Science Products, which was owned by two ex-Allied employees, received some of the necessary chemical inputs from Allied. By 1 975, Life Sciences was producing between 3,000 and 6,000 pounds of kepone a day. The plant was discharging chemicals into the city sewage system, but after a breakdown of the sludge diges- ters, kepone-laden sludge was pumped into an open field. In October, just six months after Life Sciences Products began operation, the Virginia State Water Control Board discovered non- functioning sludge digesters at the Hopewell plant. Bacteria in the digesters decomposes organic material in sewage sludge. Kepone killed these beneficial bacteria, rendering the sludge digesters use- less. This discovery in 1 975 coupled with several complaints by employees, spurred an investigation which forced the Life Sciences plant to close down in July. The U.S. Senate held hearings on the issue in 1976, and eventually Allied Chemical and Life Sciences were both brought to trial. WK ntium Your one stop shopping on campus. 454-3222 Although both companies were fined, the problems caused by kepone are still with us. The human problem is two-fold, directly affecting both human health and the James River fishing industry. Many employees at the Hopewell plant as well as their families developed kepone poisoning. The poisoning is characterized by personality changes, shaking, eye tremors, and other afflictions of the nervous system. Researchers are currently working on ways to get the kepone out of the victims ' blood streams. The James River, due to the unlawful discharging, has an esti- mated 100,000 pounds of kepone incorporated in its bottom sedi- ments. The economic loss resulting from closing it off to fishing and other uses was estimated at $ 1 million in 1 976. The horror of all this is that kepone seems to be a very long-last- ing chemical. Residues of it were found in a lake near a Pennsylva- nia town 1 3 years after kepone was produced there. Researchers across the country are currently working on ways to rid the James River and the soil of kepone. Here at the University, microbiology professor Dr. Rita Colwell is studying the effects kepone may hove on the Chesapeake Bay since it was disposed into some of the Bay ' s tributaries. This research is of primary importance because the Bay is the biggest fish producer on the East Coast. Colwell and graduate student Steve Orndoff are conducting sed- iment analyses of samples from the James, nearby rivers, and from the Hopewell treatment plant. The study is trying to determine the ability of micro-organisms to degrade kepone quickly under natural conditions. Additional involvement by the University in the future is uncer- tain. — Rose Morino Thanks to jonet Jessel ■BaCaaaMBfr-n-V ■■T ■.. . .■ ■n i m ' i ■ Vl,.Y- ■. if»rr;.- " .-mfi-.T -. . f ,, ,-. .. -... , .. . , III! r --.. ■ I---- CIO 8 ' v 7.

UM ' s reactor director Dr. Ralph L. Belcher says people are exposed to more radi- ation from a tooth x-ray than from being around UM ' s 250 kilowatt nuclear reactor. Although the 10 foot thick concrete walls which hold 6000 gallons of water and the reactor make on impressive sight, the reactor itself is only 1 6 inches wide by 24 inches long. No electricity is produced by the reactor. It is used for teaching and research pur- poses only. One graduate student recently finished his doctorate studying neutron tronsport through various gases. Seeds have also been irradioted to study effects of radiation on plant mutations. The nuclear reactor consists of 93 fuel rods which react whenever they are together. Neutrons bombard other particles which split and hit other particles and so on. The reaction would continue until the fuel was exhousted if not for several boron control rods. These rods absorb neutrons within the reactor to stop the reac- tion. When the control rods ore lifted, the reaction again takes place. Fuel for the reactor is 20% uranium 235 and 80% natural uranium 238. Fuel in 3-foot long rods is supplied to the University by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. These rods trig- ger the nuclear reaction and absorb isotopes which form as results of the reaction. These wastes ore highly radioactive and especially dangerous because of their long half-lives. Some may linger for thousands of years. Every I 2 years or so fuel rods ore removed from the reactor and reploced by the NRC. Uranium 235 can be separated from the other isotopes in the rods and reused OS fuel. Remaining wastes are stored by the NRC. Coke adds Irfe to everything nice Studying the Earth ' s Atmosphere in the Chemistry Building Much of the research done in the Department of Nuclear and Atmos- pheric Chemistry is based on the application of nuclear methods of analysis to problems in environ- mental chemistry. In the experi- ments of Doctors Gordon and Zol- ler at the University of Maryland, graduate students and researchers have collected air samples any- where from Alaska to Antarctica to determine types and amounts of pollutants the air may contain. When exposed to the core of a nuclear reactor, atmospheric sam- ples become irradiated with neu- trons. The energies and intensities of the gamma rays subsequently given off by the samples can be measured, providing a nuclear " fin- gerprinting " method for the identi- fication of many elements. This " neutron activation " technique has been used to determine the sources of toxic and other trace elements in the atmosphere at locations around the world. " Neutron activation " analysis is also a valuable geologic tool. It was used to help identify the com- ponents of lunar samples brought to earth by the astronauts. In rec- ognition of the service this tech- nique has rendered, the American Chemical Society in August of 1976 presented Dr. Glen E. Gor- don with a national award for his part in the development of the pro- ject. The collection and preparation of atmospheric samples is not com- plicated, but much care must be taken to insure that no contamina- tion takes place. The samples are collected by pumping air through fine filter paper. The filters are then sealed and taken to the " clean room " in the Chemistry Building. " Clean " is no exaggeration. 2iO With only 1 particles of matter per cubic foot of air, it ' s cleaner than most operating rooms. Air is con- stantly pumped through particle fil- ters. The resulting higher atmos- pheric pressure creates billowing air currents and a clean, refreshing atmosphere. It is ironic that atmos- pheric pollutants ore being studied in a room so full of fresh air. Special precautions are taken prior to entering the clean room: white lab coats, caps, and polyeth- ylene gloves are donned, and a fly- paper type mat grabs dirt from shoe bottoms, which are then cov- ered with polyethylene bags. Look- ing more like something out of a Woody Allen movie than environ- mental chemists, researchers pre- pare the filter-paper samples for irradiation by pelletizing and bag- ging them. Since the University ' s 1 kilowatt nuclear reactor doesn ' t have the ability to quickly irradiate the small quantities of elements which may be present in the samples, the pel- lets are taken to the National Bureau of Standards for irradia- tion. Analysis is either done there or at the counting room in the chemistry building. The gamma-rays originating from the nuclei present in sample are detected by a germanium crys- tal which converts gamma-rays into electric pulses. The electronic sig- nals are fed into a pulse height analysis system which stores the data in a computer memory and converts the signals into a graphi- cal display on a television screen. Using the sizes and energies of the peaks in this display, research- ers can determine what elements (and how much of each one) are present in the sample. While the counting of gamma- Pressures of 4000 lo 5000 pounds per square inch pelletize atmospheric samples. The somples ore then irradiated in a nuclear reactor. rays takes place, the sample must be shielded from background radi- ation which could interfere with analysis. Pre-World War II lead and steel is especially valuable for shields because it does not contain the radioactive contaminants that materials processed since the test- ing of nuclear warheads would contain. By comparing the contents of air samples taken in various locations, sources of many atmospheric pollu- tants may be tracked down. Neu- tral anaylsis and other chemical techniques show that lead from auto exhaust appears most fre- quently in urban atmospheres. Copper and arsenic may be found in air around a copper smelting fac- tory. Other elements which have been found in urban atmospheres are sulfur, vanadium, chlorine, and even trace quantities of silver and gold, among other things. — MichoelP.

A scanning microscope operates by bouncing secondary electrons off the subject. The resulting X-rays produce the image. The scanning microscope is equipped with a black and white television screen on which to view the sample, and a pulse height analyzer which deter- mines what elements are present in the sample. The more familiar transmission microscope is the second largest on the East Coast, operating at 200,000 volts. This microscope operates by actually sending a beam through the sample rather than by bouncing electrons off of it. The higher voltage permits greater penetration and better resolution, or focus. Photographs can be taken inside the transmission microscope using phosphorus screens. — Carol Strohecker 253 Next time you get a munch, try some fried grasshoppers Agricultural researchers at DM are studying forage management, sludge, controlling insects, speed- ing up food production, minimizing oyster and clam spoilage, refilling the almost empty oyster beds of Maryland, and new methods for the sterilization of milk and other foods. Aubrey W. Williams, an UM anthropologist, conducted research on food consumption of Mexican villagers who have survived for years on an insect supplemented diet, and who maintained healthy and active lives. He showed that the Mexican diet consisted of around 1 ,450 calories a day com- pared to the American caloric fig- ures ranging between 3,000 and 4,000. Williams found that the diets were similar in content to American diets. However, an unusual snack accompanied the Mexican diet. It consisted of fried grasshoppers, bee larvae, red ants, grubs, worms and caterpillars. Williams feels that insect protein could be used as a food additive in flours, grains, soups, and pet foods as a non- meat protein source. Two other researchers are Dr. A. Morris Decker and Dr. Amihud Kramer, the former professor of agronomy and an expert in forage management, the latter a professor of food technology. Decker con- tends that beef cattle would be as well nourished by forage grasses and legumes as by the more expen- sive corn and alfalfa they are now fed. His research deals with finding ways to maximize growth and nutritive value of forage crops. Decker also participates in sludge research with the veterinary science and agronomy departments of the UMCP and the USPA. Sludge is the heavy end product of a sew- age treatment plant. It is rich in nutrients for soil and plant life. The sludge has proven successful in reconditioning soil on mine proper- ties. It revegetated the once barren areas with trees and other plants. If not for the high concentration of heavy metals in sludge, it would be an excellent fertilizer. Heavy met- als ore not harmful to plants except in high amounts, but if people or animals eat the plants the results could be disastrous. Dr. Kramer agrees with many of his colleagues that if population growth continues at the present rate, earth will reach a point of catastrophe sooner or later, if not in the year 2100. In order for us to survive in the world we must increase the food supply on the one hand, and environmental control (particularly pollution control) on the other. Increased utilization rather than disposal of pollutants offers the best opportunity for solv- ing both sides of the problem. Max- imum utilization, particularly of food wastes, would not only reduce waste disposal problems, but would increase the food resources available to a rapidly expanding world population. Kramer ' s solution to the problem is to increase the availability of food by improved storage and transportation, manufacture and preservation of by-products, utiliza- tion of solid and liquid wastes at the processing plant and total utili- zation of field corps. — Hilary Mapp ' ' Bmmk : ' - 255 256 drawings by Jeon Swink International Festival Although vastly overshadowed by the summer-long Folk Life Festi- val downtown, Maryland ' s own weekly International Festival still forcibly depicted the great diversity of our national legacy in a quiet, yet festive way.

" John Goecker and his crev staged a fine show for the diners as he brought the sights and sounds of Honolulu into the Hill Dining Hall. Several students found time to take a break from their repast and attempt to pick up the finer points of performing the hula. All in all, it was a pleasant break for all from the normal dining hall fare. 259 v Skateboards Are Back 260 Loch Lomond Bakery 422-9689 date nut bars, shortbread Just when everyone thought that the nostolgio kick hod reached its peak, the skateboard came back. The nemesis of worrying mothers found its way back onto the slanty sidewalks of campus this year. Both college-age and grade- school age kids fondly took to the 1 976-77 version of the boards and both groups were often seen speeding across areas like the newly-paved parking lot 1 and the south chapel lawn. Tournaments held in June and August were sparsely attended, but the biggest skateboard tournament in Maryland was held in Septem- ber. Some of the best skaters on the East Coast displayed skill and daredevildry to an appreciative crowd. The Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity, together with the East Coast Skate- boards, sponsored this contest, and all proceeds went to the T. J. Mar- tell Memorial Foundation for leuke- mia research.

The SGA attempted to alleviate this sit- uation last September, by sponsor- ing an expose of groups on cam- pus. Participating groups set up booths and demonstrations in the Student Union colony ballroom. They signed up new members and explained what their group was all about. The only wish was that more students had shown up to enjoy Expo 76. !ODON N " y fc aj.i.R PKwj 262 Albrecht ' s Phormacy HxnU -MV Zr POWERS GOODE: Fine mens clothing 263 Staffed by competent profes- sionals and directed by Dr. Marga- ret Bridwell, the University ' s Health Center provides emergency and routine medical care, health educa- tion, mental health evaluation and treatment, and laboratory, x-ray, and gynecological services.

The term Free University does not refer to the cost of the educa- tion, which is minimal. It refers to the exchange and flow of knowl- edge between student and teacher in a less rigid situation than a bonafide university. All the people who make the free university work are volunteer. Free University head James Frid describes this system, which oper- ates " almost totally on a giving basis, " as an " organic process. " For Frid, the absence of require- ments for exams, role call, and grades encourage learning through a process of " natural selection. " Course offerings were expanded this year to include a variety of sub- ject matter, ranging from backgam- mon to Buddhism. Others were kite flying, exercise, human potential, belly dancing and many, many more.

A join us march around campus was followed by a mass planting of vegetables on traffic circle, now home of the big " M. " The marches culminated with a rush on the main administration building. This all happened Wednesday; by that weekend, demonstrators were assured that the Food Co-op was no longer on the endangered list. ,„,-,tap i -For t n « vl -pwr oSc ' I- f •- rnr-1 ) r-TT !9 With fears of extinction behind them. Co-op workers and support- ers looked forward to moving out of cramped quarters in the Student Union basement, into a larger room upstairs. Administration arguments against expansion included consid- eration of students who " liked hamburgers. " Administrators seemed to be afraid that with fresh fruits, grains and dairy products available at low prices; along with a sandwich bar offering alterna- tives to meat, tuna and egg salad, students would somehow be denied availability to the hamburger and other traditional " fast foods. " Food Co-op workers were sure this fear stemmed not from denial of certain foods to students, but from loss of University food ser- vices profits to the Food Co-op. They were sure, like the administra- tion seemed to be, that given equally convenient access to both services, students would choose the Co-op. Dairyland The University dairy processors has been located in the Turner Lab- oratory for about 22 years. There, milk from " university " cows is proc- essed into drinkable milk for the dining halls and local hospitals. A commercial dairy mix is used to process ice cream according to the Turner Lab ' s ov n formula. The dairy will soon get a cream separator, which will lessen the present butterfat level in the milk and ice cream produced. Butterfat levels don ' t seem to bother all who enjoy having this facility on cam- pus, though. University of Maryland ice cream is truly a delicacy. J - Recycle it " •■»■. , • ■ 374 The SGA funded campus recy- cling center is run by students and community volunteers. From 10-3 on Saturdays they collect various kinds of papers, glass and metals, sort them, and ship them to appro- priate recyclers. Newspaper, phone books, mag- azines and even computer cards and print-out paper ore shredded and ultimately reduced back to pulp. This is reused to make similar paper products. Tin, aluminum and bimetals are collected by the center for melting into reusable metal. Some bimetals are alloys, but most are simply combinations of different metals in the same container, like tin soda cans with aluminum tops. All colors of bottle glass are col- lected and ultimately melted down for reuse. The center asks merely that people sort materials to be recycled before leaving them. ai ' fi? ' Counseling Center Being one face in a sea of 38,000 can be a frightening expe- rience. The University Counseling Center, however, can help new stu- dents ease into university life. Located in Shoennaker Hall, the Counseling Center offers work- shops in reading, writing and study skills, exam skills, LSAT prepara- tion, term paper clinics and sched- uling advice. English coaching classes are held for foreign stu- dents. Human relations are stressed in assertive behavior training, cou- ples communication courses and a human sexuality group. The goal of the Counseling Cen- ter is to offer students a variety of programs to develop talents and skills that will make university life easier to cope with. 7? " ' , i O Good Qualify and Price Campus Barber Shop 277 Early in the month of October 1909, the quiet skies surrounding a grass field near the sleepy town of College Park were filled with an engine sputter ond the rustle of wind. The Wright Military Flyer, with Wilbur himself at the controls, took to the air in opening dedication to the U.S. government ' s first military training field. Little did those present realize that the tiny field would become the oldest continuously active airport in the world within sixty-eight short years. The site of many earlier experiments with flight, such as man-carrying kites (around 1901) and gas-filled balloons, the field was picked primarily for its proximity to Washington, which was eight miles away. The field was used as a training facility, with Wilbur training many of the first military pilots, until 1912, when the army closed the field and moved to a larger base. It was reopened in 1913 as a civilian airfield, complete with an airplane factory (which soon folded). From 1918 to the mid-1920 ' 5 the field was the southern terminus for the U.S. Post Office ' s airmail routes. Also in the 1 920 ' s, the first controlled flights of the Berliner helicopter, forerunner of today ' s heli- copters, were completed. The National Bureau of Standards began tests in the 1920 ' s which eventually led to present day radio navigotion aids now used nationwide. However, around the late 1 950 ' s, the slow suffocation of the airport began OS the tendrils of Washington suburbs reached College Park. It existed in a state of decay and disuse, barely active, and was considered both a hazard and a nuisance until 1970, when a movement began to establish the airport as on historic site. This effort seemed doomed, however, when needed finan- cial support didn ' t appear. Then, in 1973, the Maryland National Capitol Park and Planning Commis- sion bought the airport, and so seemingly secured it for the future. However, recent restrictive legislation has threatened to strangle all activity at the airport. The port is a 20 minute walk from campus, and the home of many oviotion-oriented organizations as well as over 70 aircrafts. A full scale battle between local pilots and legislators is now being waged. Much tronsportotion out of the area by general aviation aircraft is supplied by the airport, and many would be without a convenient location for air travel if the airport were closed. The pilots hove the support of the State Aviation Administration plus numer- ous pro-aviotion organizations. The legislators have the support of local home owners whose homes were built long after the airport was there. At stake is the continued life of the oldest and longest operating airport in the world. The outcome remains anyone ' s quess. — Janice Knestout 278 Why walk? vj W JF ki xM 1 There are a significant 600 of them on campus. For many stu- dents, teaching assistants (TAs) play an important part in helping them through required courses at UM. TAs are graduate students who assist instructors with the teaching of certain courses. The duties of a TA range from grading papers to teaching whole courses. Most TAs are in the Mathematics Depart- ment. TAs ' salaries range from $3,500 for a Step I to $4,480 for a Step V. Promotion from one step to another is based on the TA ' s progress toward his or her degree. An auto- matic pay raise accompanies each step. Some TAs are awarded assist- anceships which allow them to take up to 10 credits free in addition to their salaries. In September 1976, a 10% pay raise was approved which raised the salary of a Step I TA from $3,1 80 to $3,500. The graduate student working as a TA helps different people in dif- ferent ways. To the instructor, he or she plays an important role in the handling of the course. Without the assistance of a graduate assistant grading tests for 300-500 students would be nearly impossible. TAs provide the personal atten- tion students need in order to sur- vive large lectures. Many go to their TAs for extra help in under- standing course material. For many students, a TA can mean the differ- ence between passing and failing a course. For the graduate student who is a TA, the job holds its own mean- ings. The salary for the amount of work performed is not considered high by TAs and non-TAs, but it does help them get through gradu- ate school. The job gives many TAs a chance to help others. " It gives me a chance to express myself, " said Michael demons, a TA in the Afro- American Studies Program. " I find I can relate to the student, and both me and the student grow.

Coke adds life to everything nice open House ?82 The Agricultural and Life Sci- ences Department, together with the Divisions of Mathematical and Physical Sciences and Engineering Departments, sponsored the third annual Open House one weekend last October. The four-day " Quality of Life " symposium drew 5,000 visitors to campus. Topics including soil, aerospace, plants, engineering, fire protection, lasers, bees, microbiol- ogy, computers, fossils, earth- quakes, and many more were dis- cussed in displays and presenta- tions by university department members. Visitors watched chicks hatch from eggs, a demonstration of a jet engine reconnaissance plane simu- lator, and toured the buildings with facilities for modern milk produc- tion. Films about robotics and ani- mation were shown throughout the weekend. Instant Hurricane REK! -x:- ' ■ ' lEEH - i i 1 ., _ i 2S4 The University of Maryland has several wind tunnels used for test- ing projects, research products, and for instruction on campus. These research tools simulate the effect of an object moving through air by moving air by and around the object. The tester can control factors such as v ind velocity and turbulence under laboratory condi- tions. Wind tunneb have uses for many topics in current research. Buildings now are often so tall that wind can actually sway them. Testing the construction and materials first in a wind tunnel can help determine how strong they are. Fuel conservation is a considera- tion when testing cars, trucks, and other vehicles. The power to push the vehicle through the resistance of air is what requires high horse- power, and consequently deter- mines the amount of fuel the vehi- cle requires. Anything which could be effected by aerodynamics, from planes to radar sensors to rotating weather vanes, can be tested in a wind tunnel. 285 The University Observatory 286 Morylond Book Exchange Half-hidden from the frantic pace of the outside world, only a few miles from campus, lie the tiny grounds of the University Astro- nomical Observatory. In its relative isolation just off Metzerott Road, the Observatory is used primarily as a training facility for astronomy graduate students. Some undergraduate introductory courses also make use of the facil- ity. The Astronomy Department also uses the Observatory to hold open houses twice a month, free to both students and the public. These include a slide show or movie, a lecture on any number of astro- nomical phenomena, plus the opportunity to gaze through the telescope at the night sky (weather permitting, of course). The bright hue of the stars in this area draws open house crowds ranging anywhere from one to one hundred or more. Jumbo Food, 2400 Univ.

At DM Rich- ard Elkins (Industrial Education), who discusses robots as part of his course on recent technological developments of products and processes believes this is a good trend. " Robots perform hazardous, repetitive, or very tedious jobs, " he says. They tend to reduce labor costs, increase productivity and perform with reduced breakage. They are also resistant to obsoles- cence. " People wear out faster than robots, " he says. Even though intelligent robots are now doing such jobs as delivering mail, they should be no threat to men, Elkins believes: " After all, none of these devices operate without human input. Somebody has to program them, and if they break down, a human being has to repair them.

Or you find the right building but there ' s no one to direct you to the right room. Or maybe you ' re stuck in the back row of a 500 seat lec- ture hall. Problems? Not for most students. But what about for those who are physically handicapped in some way? What are occasional annoyances for most of us can be major obstacles for disabled stu- dents. Currently on campus, there is a van with a hydraulic, semi-auto- matic lift which i.s used for anyone having problems with distance movement. It picks these students up and transports them from one classroom to the next. A braille computer terminal is available to the blind, but at present there is only one operator. Funds have not been provided to employ a sighted person to convert texts to braille. There is a mini-library in the coun- seling center for blind students, but it contains only a bore minimum of materials. Students who are deaf have no special facilities. Because there are no interpreters deaf stu- dents must try to comprehend lec- tures through lip-reading. Hopefully, with surplus funds from the student affairs office, the program for handicapped students will be expanded in the near future. There are several projects under- way to make life easier for handi- capped people on campus. They include a book on the accessibility of buildings and a tactile map of the campus. A visual sign system is in the process of being installed across campus whereby room num- ber will be painted on plastic signs next to the door of every room. The printing will be large with a braille translation beneath it. Priority reg- istration will be given to blind stu- dents to enable them to find texts on tape. Last year, grade reports were issued in braille or printed in large letters. Deaf students, most of whom cannot afford to pay registered interpreters $8.50 an hour, may be able to use interpreters hired by the University. These interpreters, as well as servicing the current needs of deaf students, may be used to train other interpreters. For those students in wheel- chairs, there will be material detail- ing all accessible locations. In the past few years alone, thirty or more curb cuts have been made, and ten to fifteen ramps have been built. No one with a severe disability is presently housed in a location where lamps are not available. If enough funding comes through, it will be easier for handi- capped students to get the educa- tion that those of us without physi- cal disabilities sometimes find diffi- cult. — Joan Rodgers Shuttle — UM drivers come on time. 1204 Women ' s Toilet To some, the campus seems even bigger RESERVED PARKING MEDICAL PERMITS ONLY AT !

The deaths of more than 40 eld- erly people temporarily closed some clinics throughout the nation. A debate on campus between an FDA research director, Dr. J. Anthony Morris, and PG county health department representative Dr. Susan Mather raised further doubts. Mather praised the in oculation as preventative medicine while Morris expressed concern for the conditions under which the vaccine was being administered, and their possible connections with the deaths. Plans for the campus health cen- ter ' s inoculation program were con- tinued, though, and inoculations were given as scheduled from November 1 5-1 9. Soon after it was decided that college-aged people needed a fol- low-up shot. These were scheduled for January 17-19, but after some people who received the vaccine developed varying degrees of par- alysis, the program was stopped nationwide by the end of Novem- ber. — Carol Sirohecker 293 The coldest winter this area has seen since the 20 ' s l P vmA Bundled up, freezing " According to the Nationoi Climatic Center J Slipping and sneezing 295 T 1 ., ' TUDO _,. .J™ J9.5 5- » - 297 ii JOIN Angel Flight.

Then came the SGA. Finally Maryland Media was created to handle the financial con- cerns of the yearbook and four other student publications. The publications were self-sup- porting and free from editorial con- trol by anyone outside their staffs. The professional and student mem- bers of the corporation board decided on budgets with publica- tion editors. But the budgets didn ' t always work out as planned. The daily newspaper was the only publica- tion which brought any money to the corporation. Questions were raised about the value of publica- tions which could not support them- selves. The existence of the literary The yearbook: a dying breed magazine was threatened. The yearbook had its problems too. Just 1,000 books were ordered for over 29,000 under- graduates. At times it was won- dered whether even 1 ,000 books would be sold. Hypothetical explanations for this phenomenon were many. The yearbook staff wasn ' t hustling enough. Nostalgic interest in year- books was dwindling. Whatever the reasons, one thing became apparent. As the supply of yearbooks from past years waned and sometimes disappeared from the shelves of the yearbook office, it was noted that the yearbook has become a rare breed. The Terrapin is an endangered species. Photography Credits Photographs are lettered m order on the page from top to bottom, left to right.
