dents to the university is having
administrators, faculty and students call
admitted students. During the call, the
university representative encourages the
students' interest and answers any ques-
tions they have about UCLA's campus or
canmpuslife.
The university has also sponsored
eVepts such as the Academic
Advancement Program Scholar, which
*ured last weekend. At the one-day
evnt, prospective minority students were
given an overview of the campus and the
opportunities available to them.
Although UC-Berkeley does not have
a special weekend set aside for underrep-
resented minority students to explore the
campus, Pamela Burnett, associate direc-
tor ofundergraduate admissions and rela-

tions with schools, said 250 airline
vouchers have been given to its five cam-
pus recruitment centers to encourage
minority students to take the opportunity
to visit during Cal Day. The university
uses this day to ensure admitted students
come to the school.
Burnett said students who work at the
recruitment and retention centers often
provide the most effective recruitment
efforts.
"Undergrads are the best diplomats
to newly admitted freshmen," Burnett
said.
UC Berkeley junior Solis Aguillera
has worked at the campus' Native
American Recruitment and Retention
Center since his first year on campus.
Aguillera said his efforts have
included everything from showing high
school seniors around campus to edu-
cating students as young as kinder-

garten about the opportunities the
Berkeley campus has to offer. "Even if
you just give them a T-shirt with a
Native American Students at Berkeley
logo, it helps remind them that college
is an option," he said.
Aguillera said the students use every
opportunity they can to educate, and as a
result not only recruit at community
functions such as pow-wows, but also
during summer vacations.
Although Aguillera said he is inspired
to do his work because "there has defi-
nitely been in decline in people of color
on campus,"adding that personal reasons
also motivate him.
Aguillera said he remembers being on
the receiving end of the recruitment. As a
part of low-income program for students
of color, he was taken to Berkeley when
he was younger and told, "You need to be
here too."

available to the public may answer why the poet actually left
Amherst College, where he was a professor.
University President Lee Bollinger has considered build-
ing a Robert Frost Poetry House, describing the idea as "a
comfortable place where students can read poetry to each
other as well as to their teachers and guests," according to a
press release.
The president prognosticates the poetry house in the lobby
of the Shapiro Undergraduate Library where students can
drink coffee and hold literary meetings.
University Chief Financial Officer Robert Kasdin said in
a written statement, "We have considered building a new
structure, but there is no current discussion underway to
construct a separate facility to house a Robert Frost collec-
tion."
Previously, Frost was usually associated with New
England, but "we now know he had deep and important asso-
ciations with the University of Michigan," Bollinger said.
Upon invitation from former University President Marion

Burton, who created the first Fellowship in the Creative Arts,
Frost came to Ann Arbor as a Poet in Residence.
Frost lived at Greenfield Village in Detroit during his stay
He was on campus from 1921 to 1922 as part of a one-year
fellowship with no assigned work and returned later in 1
as the Fellow in Creative Arts.
Former University President C.C. Little granted Frost a.
permanent appointment from 1925 to 1926. Although he
did not teach, Frost did meet with students during this time
and "his presence touched the broader University commu-
nity" said Anne Knott, the special counsel to the presi-
dent.
A manuscript about the time Frost spent at the University
was recently finished by Robert Warner, dean emeritus of the
School of Information and Library Studies. Bentley Library
plans to publish its
Bob Frost, Frost's great-grandson, who lives in Ann Arbor,
also recently donated some documents and other items to the
Rare Book Library.
Frost "was quintessentially a 20th Century kind of person,
and not the quaint New England pastoralist some have imag
ined," Bob Frost said in a press release.

SCIENCE

plex.
Shaking her head "no," Cantor
responded to Kossoudji, stating that the
money allotted for the life science com-
plex "is not attached to the individual as
much astotthe infrastructure of the pro-
gram.
"I hope these earmarked funds will
help with the high overhead associated
with the life sciences," Cantor said.
Bollinger said he had no desire to pay
a life science complex faculty member
an exorbitant salary, stating a large por-
tion of the allotted money would be
used to update some of the University's
scientific equipment.
"We have no desire to pay them 10
times as much; that's wildly out of
line;" Bollinger said. "Parts of the
Medical Center labs are in bad shape.
We need to do something as an insti-
tution to upgrade what needs to be
upgraded."
Bollinger added that the University
community would not be able to sur-
vive if there was an extremely vast
salary difference between life science
complex and other University faculty
members. But Cantor acknowledged
that the University pays professors in

certain fields more than those in oth-
ers.
"We have already spent more on
the science faculty than on the
humanities across the board, so I
don't see this as a new issue," Canter
said.
Sociology Prof. Donald Deskins
also questioned Cantor and
Bollinger about the involvement of
the life science complex faculty
with undergraduate students of the
University.
"Many of these 'stars' rarely ever
teach - they have their own research
agenda and minimal or no contact with
the students," Deskins said. "We get the
name but how do (the students) get
meaningful contact with the profes-
sor?"
But Cantor said those professors
hired by the University would have real.
teaching positions, stating "the institu-
tion will do real hard thinking on hQw
to bring them from the lab to the class
room and from the classroom to the
lab."
In addition, Cantor said undergradu-
ates would be able to access the profes-
sors through the Undergraduate
Research Opportunity Program and
possibly a new "Health Science
Scholar" living-learning program.

GREEN
Continued from Page 1
In 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, during
the United Nations Conference on
the Environment, the panel leading a
discussion on biodiversity was com-
posed of actors and singers.
Corporations, fisheries and
whalers, Watson claimed, squeeze the
last dollar out of natural resources
and move on to gobble up more.
When asked if he thought corpora-
tions had any solutions, Watson
admitted Paul Mitchell and Patagonia
are two corporations doing some-
thing to improve the planet.
But he said these corporations
have done something positive only
because they are not led by a board of
directors. Once a corporation only is
"answerable to faceless people," it will
lack compassion and be part of the
problem, Watson said, repeating that it
takes an impassioned and responsible
individual to help the planet.
But Watson said the media has
never portrayed him as impassioned
and responsible. Instead, he said he
has been called a terrorist and a crim-
inal. He asked the audience how he
could be a criminal and still freely
appear before them. He calls himself
a pirate, explaining that "pirates can
be good."
Currently, Watson is fighting the
Russian Mafia and its alleged illegal
trade in caviar and the Central and
South American drug cartels, who
use tuna boats with false bottoms,
thereby funneling money into a
harmful marine industry.
Watson said he has many targets -
anyone who threatens what he calls
the natural world; people who don't
know that killing one species affects
many others.
Watson said he learned about the

natural world when he fought
Russian whalers, who shoot explod-
ing harpoons at sperm whales, by
sailing his boat between the hunted
pod and the hunting ship. Rough
waves dropped him into a trough and
crested both the fleeing pod and the
ship. The launched harpoon sailed
over his head, struck a sperm whale
in the back, and he said he heard it
scream. e
The bull of the pod dove and could
have attacked Watson's boat - which
was closer - but attacked' the
whaler's boat instead.
They were prepared for his charge
and shot him point blank in the head.
The whale dove again and surfaced
next to Watson's boat - close
enough that the whale could have
killed him.
But the whale didn't kill Watson.
Instead he said he saw in an eye the
size of his fist a very real under-
standing, as well as pity. That hap-
pened in 1975, and that's when he
turned his back on humanity and
"served the whales."
Shepherd Sea, an organization
which upholds international marine
laws and doesn't protest them, was
started with the aid of Buckminster
Fuller, who told Watson not to "let
the media set (his) agenda;"
Cleveland Avery of Fund . for
Animals, who donated the money to
buy the first ship in Watson's fleet;
and Margaret Mead, who told- him
something he said twice last night:
Never confide in government institu-
tions to solve social problems; it is
passionate people who make a
change.
"As long as you use your abilities
to make this a better world, it doesn't
matter what you do," Watson said.
"Don't take any criticism to heart
we haven't got anything right yet."-s
