By Stephanie Powell
Daily Staff Rleporter
A love of music, composing and
teaching have been the ingredients for
success for this year's Russel Lecturer.
William Bolcom, a Music professor,
will deliver the Russel Lecture on March
11. The University's Research Club nom-
inated Bolcom this month.
The club - composed mostly of pre-
vious lecturers and organized by the

cant achievements of colleagues like
Bolcom," said Paul Boylan, dean of the
School of Music. "All of his col-
leagues are thrilled," he said.
Tom Dunn, chair of the Senate
Advisory Committee on University
Affairs, said it is harder for musicians to
achieve this honor.
"It is a great choice because it is dif-
ficult to get somebody in the perfor-
mance area;" Dunn said.

This is not

that Bolcom
has received.
He won the
Michigan's
Governor Arts
Award in 1987,
the Pulitzer
Prize for music
in 1988, and

given to a faculty member who displays
outstanding teaching ability.
"It is a great honor and I am delight-
ed and sincerely flattered by the
award," said Bolcom, who has been a
faculty member at the University
since 1973.
Currently, Bolcom is working on
the lecture he will deliver in March.
This honor - the highest given to a
senior faculty member - was a great
recognition for the recipient and the

"Prof. Bolcom is a fountain of

wealth of practical experience to call
upon when giving a lesson."

As the students perform and collabo-
rate, they are able to put words and
music together, Bolcom said.

State moves to ban't
cigarettes in prisons

Native American Heritage Month is
including an old tradition in its
November celebration.
Native American students, staff,
faculty and community members con-
tributed to the "Traditions Exhibit,"
which features everything from
acrylic paintings, photography and
beadwork to poetry, basket weaving
and quillwork.
"It fosters a lot of pride, especially
for students;" said Shannon Martin,
Native American coordinator for Multi-
Ethnic Student Affairs.
"Each of us have our own hidden tal-
ents in which we can express ourselves,
from the traditional to the contempo-
rary.
"It was brought to the table by the
Native American Programs Task Force
... there was a need for showcasing our
talents;' she said.
The exhibit, which is currently on
display in the Michigan Union Art
Lounge, has traveled to Pierpont
Commons, Trotter House and the
Michigan League.
"We hope to bring pride and cultur-
al awareness to our own Native
American community," Martin said.
"But our greatest task lies in edu-
cating non-native people about who
we are."
Those who contributed to the exhibit
said they enjoyed being able to give
something to the University communi-
ty.
"It was a way to honor an ancient
tradition that is near extinction," said

LANSING (AP) - State prison
guards are worried over the slow, delib-
erate elimination of cigarettes and other
tobacco products from the state's pris-
ons within the next 13 months.
Guards predict the plan to make pris-
ons smoke-free will trigger an increase
in prison violence and smuggling. They
fear that when many of the 40,000
inmates are forced to go cold turkey, the
atmosphere will get tense.
"If they try to totally stop smoking
and tobacco products in the prisons,
you'll get an increase in gang activity in
smuggling and fighting over territory;"
Fred Parks, executive director of the
Michigan Corrections Organization,
told The Detroit News.
Parks estimates that as many as 80
percent of Michigan inmates smoke.
The state has banned smoking in the
Mound Correctional Facility in Detroit
and the Newberry Correctional Facility
in the Upper Peninsula.
Since last year, another nine
Michigan prisons have outlawed smok-
ing except during a limited time out-
side. And by Jan. 1, 1998, the depart-

ment intends to have all 37 prisons and
15 prison camps smoke-free, the News
said.
Kevin Venechuk, who has spent 11 of
his 30 years behind bars for receiving
and concealing stolen property, said
inmates are growing edgy knowing that
their right to smoke inside the prison is
about to be snatched away.
"I know smoking is bad for you, and
I'd like to quit;' said the Kalamazoo
man, who smokes a pack each day inside
the Michigan Training Unit in Ionia.
"But when they stop the smoking here, I
think it will get hostile for a while."
The 1,300 inmates are "already
geeked up" by the no-smoking talk and
by a threat from some lawmakers to
take away their cable television?
Venechuk said.
Exposure to secondhand smoke has
produced a flood of lawsuits against
prisons across the country, the News
said. That's a big motivator in the wave
toward smoke-free prisons.
In Michigan, the Department of
Corrections has been slapped with 38
lawsuits since 1988.

Melinda Watts-Ellis, whose finger-
woven artwork is on display.
Watts-Ellis also said she hoped that
those who saw the exhibit gained "a
sense of appreciation for the art
through the expression of individuals."
LSA senior Marc Levine said he usu-
ally studies in the Art Lounge and
always notices the artwork.
"I thought it was kind of sparse. I
liked it. I just wish there was more,"

Levine said.
Martin said she was pleased with
the art exhibit because it allowed the
Native American community to dis-
play their pride and hidden talents.
"Our culture is still strong and
intact and strength comes from our
young people who are the students,"
Martin said.
The Traditions Exhibit will be on dis-
play through Sunday.

YPSILANTI (AP) - Campus
police at Eastern Michigan University
are making emergency cellular
phones available to people worried
about being preyed upon by stalkers
or harassers.
The phones can only dial 911 and
can't receive incoming calls, said John
McAuliffe, director of the EMU
Department of Public Safety.
The program was started amid efforts
to increase awareness about date rape,
domestic violence and Michigan's
stalking law, said Todd Lancaster, com-
munity relations officer for campus
police.
Ameritech donated three phones.
So far, only one has been given out.
Lancaster says it was given to a 22-
year-old EMU student who is being

stalked by an unknown person whp
peeked through her windows, brol
into her on-campus apartment at lealt
once and wrote a threatening letter.:
The woman - who asked not to b!
identified - said the phone makes h&
feel more secure.
Although she no longer lives in the
apartment that was broken into, -sle
said she does not feel safe.
"I'm a prisoner in my own life," se
said. "Knowing that the police are only
a phone call away really helps. I'm verb
glad that they have this systenT j
place:'
Lancaster hopes the program will
help others.
"It doesn't have to be a stalking viZ.
tim, but a person in any situation that
might warrant it," Lancaster said.

SALARIES

and somewhere below many of the pri-
vates we consider to be our peers,"
Harrison said.
Seven of the 15 highest-paid
University employees are associated
with University Hospitals or the
Medical School. The highest 13 salaries
are more than $200,000.

Merit increases for deans averaged
4.0 percent. Engineering Dean Stephen
Director, who receives $206,100, is the
highest-paid dean.
Carr, along with basketball coach
Steve Fisher, received a 3-percent
increase. Fischer will earn $129,347
in University money.
Hockey coach Red Berenson will
earn $100,000, a 14.47-percent
increase from last year.
There is a large discrepancy

between Carr's salary and the other
head'coaches because almost all of
Carr's total income, including money
from the University's contract with
Nike, is reported in the salary record.
The other coaches receive more rev-
enue from outside contracts, Harrison
said.
® The Salary Supplement will be
available Dec. 10 at the Student
Publications Building at 420 Maynard
St. for $6.
