Classical studies Prof. John Pedley - the 21 st
Distinguished Senior Faculty Lecturer award
recipient - plans to speak tomorrow about a mon-
umental excavation that almost was ruined by a
tomato paste factory.
Pedley will talk about this University discovery at
4:15 p.m. tomorrow in the Rackham Amphitheater
during his lecture titled "Flighty Aphrodites: A
Group of Marble Statuettes from Paestum, Italy"
The LSA executive committee chose Pedley for
the annual award because of his accomplishments
in the classical studies department as well as his
field work around the world.
"This is someone we wanted to honor because
he's a fine example of the best in terms of a teacher
and scholar in the humanities," said LSA Dean
Edie Goldenberg.
Pedley will speak about his trip to Paestum,

Italy, where he and a team of students and col-
leagues worked with the University of Perugia to
unearth and study marble statuettes that were dis-
covered when the site was being cleared to build a
tomato paste factory.
Pedley said the statuettes
were a mystery because they He
appeared to be chronologically
Roman, but culturally Greek. (ese
"I think the most important
find to come out of this was alivei
really the intellectual find,"
Pedley said. "We've got a pretty - P
good idea of what aspect of C l a
Aphrodite/Venus was being
worshiped."
Pedley said he was lucky to help with the exca-
vation because "Italians don't usually let foreign-
ers work in sites as rich as these."
A member of the department since 1965,

Pedley is an expert in the areas of Greek art and
archaeology. He has written more than nine
books and has worked in Turkey, Libya,
England, Tunisia and Greece.

Pedley said his
favorite part of teaching
is working with undergraduate students because
they are open to information and discussion.
"Bright new minds, curious you know," Pedley
said. "(They are) very inquisitive and some of

them are very, very, very bright."
Prof. Sharon Herbert, chair of the classical
studies department, called Pedley one of the"
"movers and shakers" in Greek archaeology.
"When he starts talking about these statues, they
almost talk to you," Herbert said. "He really brings
these pieces alive."
Herbert said Pedley made instrumental contri-
butions to the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology'
during its development.
LSA junior Ken Kim, who is a student of
Pedley's, said he is good at communicating infor
mation to his students.
"He likes having people interested in the things
he teaches' Kim said. "It really gets him going."
Pedley began the two-part series Jan 21. with a
lecture on freestanding figures in sanctuaries and
architectural sculpture decorating sacred buildings.
A reception in the Rackham Assembly Hall will
follow tomorrow's lecture.

Participants discuss
issues of race and
ethnicity
By Alice Robinson
Daily Staff Reporter
Makaiya Brown and Valerie Ho did-
n't know each other three days ago.
But thanks to the first annual Multi-
Ethnic Leadership Retreat, the two
LSA students are now friends.
Brown and Ho were among 25 stu-
dents who attended the retreat,
designed to stimulate discussion on
issues surrounding race and ethnicity
and promote cooperation and under-
standing between different student.
groups and between individuals.
The three-day weekend event was a
collaboration between the Office of
Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs and the
Office of Student Activities and
Leadership.
Brown said the activities, including
journal writing and group exercises,
provided participants with the chance
to get to know each other and share
feelings about sensitive issues in a com-
fortable setting.
Brown said that -on the second day,
students were required to separate into
groups. "We got into groups based on
whatever race we identified with;"
Brown said.
Students in the groups shared experi-
ences of times when they either were
oppressed or times when they
oppressed others,
SNRE first-year student Joe Reilly
said the retreat helped him to further
realize that all people have the capacity
to stereotype others.
"No matter how open-minded you

are, you always have them. Unless you,:
make an attempt like this retreat to prove :
to yourself these stereotypes aren't true,
our society (and) our campus will always
have prejudices,' he said.
The retreat was held in Brooklyn,
Mich., at the Holley Ear Institute,,
which rents its lodge to various groups,
when not holding functions for the"
hearing-impaired.
One participant said the retreat:'
gave her the chance to share her;
thoughts with others in a friendly;
environment.
"I think the retreat provided a com-
fortable atmosphere where we could talk.
about delicate topics related to division:
on campus and race and ethnicity'
issues," said LSA senior Shawntha Rau..
Co-facilitator Roger Fisher, assistant,;
director of campus activities and pro-
grams for the SAL office, said the.
retreat was organized because of a need,-
for more communication between eth-
nic groups at the University.
"I think it's critical for ... the man-
dates and objectives of the University if
we're going to further this institution,
Fisher said. He said the University
needs to hold more events like the
retreat "to create a more diverse and
accepting institution."
The students said they hope to meet
in February to discuss how to imple-
ment some of the things they learned.
The next Multi-Ethnic Leadership
Retreat is planned for the fall.
Brown said the experience was one
she will never forget and hopes a simi-
lar atmosphere can be created at the
University.
"I almost didn't want to leave," she
said. "It seems like as soon as I got back
on campus, I noticed the change."

With more than an hour left before
the salon closed, Heinrich was happy
to report that about 50 customers
had donated a total of nearly $800.
"We had a pretty good rush this
morning," he said yesterday after-
noon between haircuts.
"People seem to be very happy with
the haircuts," Heinrich said.
Heinrich said he hoped to contribute
$1,000 to the $28,000 cost of bringing

"It's much more than just a grave-
