Krebs describes changes in Washington

By Lynn Yarris,

The compact between science and society should not be a partisan issue, but the political climate in Washington today is so contentious that bipartisan actions are becoming increasingly difficult.

That was one of the insights into the current Washington scene delivered by Martha Krebs, director of DOE's Office of Energy Research (ER), in her noon address to employees on Monday, Aug. 14. The talk, entitled "Interesting Times--the Washington Perspective," was her second to Lab employees since relinquishing her job as Associate Laboratory Director at LBNL.

Krebs staked her position on the belief that basic research is a critical element of the nation's world leadership, and that to realize tomorrow's benefits requires investments today. She said she sensed that many members of Congress share her non-partisan belief in the compact between science and society, but that political considerations are making it difficult to carry through the commitment.

Calling last year's election the "November revolution," Krebs said the Washington political scene has undergone a dramatic change that goes far beyond the Republicans taking control of the House and the Senate. "We are dealing with a new set of people, many of whom have served in office for less than five years," she said. "Many of these new arrivals have come (to Washington) with the attitude, `Don't confuse me with the facts; I'm here to reduce the budget and the size of government.'"

As an example of the current climate, Krebs cited a question posed at a hearing of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Environment by chairman Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.). "`Dr. Krebs,' he said, `I would like to see your top three programs and your three least important. If you don't do it, this committee will make the cuts for you.'"

This past June, House Republicans made public a plan to eliminate DOE. Part of this plan called for the privatization of ER labs such as LBNL. "These are difficult times, not just for DOE, but for the entire system of national laboratories," said Krebs. "More than ever, we all need to work together to make a difference."

Krebs said that Secretary of Energy Hazel O'Leary and the rest of DOE's leadership have been fighting back in a lot of ways for science and for the national laboratories, and that these efforts are paying off. The budget that is shaping up for LBNL and the other ER labs, while not as good as most scientists would like, is "not nearly as bad as it could have been."

She said that the ER segment of the DOE budget sent to Congress by the Clinton Administration called for $2.8 billion in spending. Congress is expected to send back an ER budget of approximately $2.5 billion. Though funding for fusion energy research and some technology transfer programs appears to be headed for stiff reductions, other ER programs look to be in better shape than had been feared.

Krebs specifically mentioned the $100 million presidential initiative to increase the utilization of the Advanced Light Source and other national user facilities, and the plan to supplement high-energy physics research with additional funds to help get programs back on course after the termination of the SSC.

"With these (anticipated) funding increases will come an obligation to spend the money well," Krebs said. She urged that members of the ER laboratory system do a better job of "communicating our niche."

Krebs was visiting the Laboratory to attend the groundbreaking for the Human Genome Laboratory and to oversee DOE's on-site review. Her initial reaction to the review was quite favorable.

"I was particularly impressed with how the review tied things together and showed that the research--from the atomic scale to large systems--is addressing the kinds of problems that the Lab can tackle," she said.

Krebs was also impressed with the Laboratory's vision as presented by Director Charles Shank and the division directors, saying it gave her "confidence about the leadership" at Berkeley.

Soil broken for Genome Lab

Some of the many people responsible for LBNL's Human Genome Laboratory donned hard hats and turned soil on Tuesday, Aug. 15, to officially launch construction of the new research facility. Sharing in the honor were Life Sciences Division Director Mina Bissell, Life Sciences' Chris Martin, Lab Director Charles Shank, DOE's Martha Krebs, interim Human Genome Center Director Mohan Narla, and Mike Palazzolo, deputy director of the Human Genome Center. The three-story structure, to be located behind Bldg. 74, will bring under one roof the diverse research teams at LBNL working to map and sequence the human genetic code (see Currents, Aug. 11).

More than 200 employees and special guests from government, industry, and academia braved the summer sun to celebrate the groundbreaking. The crowd heard speeches by Shank, Mina Bissell, Narla, Krebs and DOE's Dave Smith.

In her speech at the groundbreaking ceremony, Bissell called the new building a "dream come true." "In my 25 years here I have always believed biology belongs at the national laboratories, and in particular at LBNL--next to the Berkeley campus and surrounded by the Bay Area's many biotech companies."

Layoff notices issued

Reduction-in-Force notices were issued this week in the Laboratory's Operations units. The layoffs, part of a restructuring and process improvement program, are expected to yield $5 million in annual savings. A detailed article will appear in next week's Currents.

Director's Corner: Commitment to diversity

By Charles V. Shank

Affirmative action programs are receiving considerable attention in political and media circles these days. This is an appropriate time to review what it all means to the Laboratory and our programs.

Our commitment is simple: to fully integrate diversity into the research culture and to encourage a work environment that fosters cultural pluralism through equity and team spirit. We achieve this by emphasizing the importance of diversity in our recruitment, our hiring practices, and our conduct. And we are stronger because of it.

The recent action by the University of California Board of Regents will not change this commitment, nor would the Board or the President want us to do so. UC's current laboratory management contract with DOE commits the University to taking "affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed, and that employees are treated during employment, without regard to their race, color, religion, sex, or national origin." Our hiring, retention, and employment policies reflect that commitment.

But commiting to diversity means more than complying with the law. It means encouraging, through outreach and effort, participation in our programs by those who have historically been excluded or underrepresented. It means providing an environment in which differences are respected, beliefs and backgrounds are valued, and opportunity is balanced for everyone.

The profession of science has not traditionally attracted many ethnic minorities and women to its ranks. We in the scientific community have an obligation to remove whatever barriers to success have discouraged those who have been underrepresented, and to project a hospitable and helpful climate for those who have embarked on their research journeys.

As one example, our Center for Science and Engineering Education maintains student and teacher programs that address inequities in science, mathematics, and technology that many African Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans face. Fellowship and mentoring programs, as well as partnerships with primarily minority colleges, provide incentives to pursue careers in science for those who show great potential and promise.

The Laboratory has participated for the last three years in UC's postdoctoral fellowship program, and this fall we will be augmenting that effort to increase the pool of underrepresented scientists and engineers with a fellowship program of our own.

New diversity calendar

In our workplace, celebrating diversity is a strategic necessity. The Laboratory Diversity Committee and the Work Force Diversity Office have provided us with innovative and positive programs, the latest of which is an annual Diversity Calendar, to which all employees are invited to contribute.

In the past two years, groups of interested employees have volunteered their time and effort to initiate and obtain Laboratory support for various diversity activities. The new calendar, established at the beginning of each fiscal year, will include established events as well as new ones that are deemed appropriate for inclusion. Examples of prior successes include Black History Month, Daughters to Work Day, Disability Awareness, Gay Pride Month, Hispanic History Month, International Women's Month, and a speaker series.

Though some suggestions might be accepted later in the year, the majority of calendar events should be submitted for review by Friday, Sept. 1, to a Diversity Committee representative, Committee co-chairpersons Janet Jacobsen or Mary Worth, or Gail Kato of the Work Force Diversity Office.

I also acknowledge the Committee's intent to begin reporting quarterly highlights, which will be made available to all employees via posting on the World Wide Web. These highlights will reflect member activities, ideas, issues, accomplishments, and upcoming plans.

Through these and other means, our employees are successfully communicating the ways in which diversity enriches all of our lives--and that is the best kind of affirmative action.

In memoriam -- Conrad A. Lee

Conrad Lee, who worked as systems support in Purchasing, died of a heart attack on Monday, Aug. 7. He was 64.

Employees may remember seeing him coast down Cyclotron Road at one time or another. Lee bicycled between the BART station and the Lab each day. He began working at the Laboratory in 1992.

A native of Eureka, Lee lived in Richmond for 30 years. He was a graduate of San Francisco Theological Seminary, attended Western Baptist Bible College, and graduated from Simpson College in San Francisco. He preached at the Richmond Rescue Mission.

Lee was a colonel in the Army and a decorated veteran of the Korean War. He was an avid musician, playing the violin and piano.

He is survived by his wife, Phyllis, of Richmond, brother Donald of New York, and two sisters, Charlotte Danielson of Folsom and Judy Ballard of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Memorial gifts in Lee's name may be made to the Richmond Rescue Mission, P.O. Box 1112, Richmond CA.

N e w s W i r e


Richard Atkinson, chancellor of UC San Diego, has been nominated by the nine-member UC Regents selection committee to replace Jack Peltason as president of the University of California. Atkinson, 66, has served as the UCSD chancellor since 1980. He is a psychologist by training, a former head of the National Science Foundation under President Jimmy Carter, and a past president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His nomination will be voted upon by the full Board of Regents at a meeting scheduled for today, Aug. 18.


In her recent meeting with DOE employees to discuss business reforms (see Currents, Aug. 11), Energy Secretary Hazel O'Leary also said that Congressional efforts to kill DOE may have peaked. "I've never counted a vote until the last vote has been taken, but I can say we've been doing a credible job in explaining our mission and in taking cost-cutting initiatives," she said. "People (in Congress) have come to understand that we are doing the job." In a related item, Robert Walker (R-Pa.), chairman of the House Science Committee, said he was "intrigued" by the comments of former DOE Deputy Secretary Henson Moore about proposals in the Bush Administration to convert DOE into a U.S. Department of Science (see Currents, July 21). "The more I thought about it, the more I've thought it might be the route to take," said Walker, who has been unsuccessful in persuading his fellow Republicans to support his proposal for a mega-science department that would house federal R&D efforts currently dispersed throughout several agencies. Walker says his committee will study the idea of converting DOE to DOS further this fall when it conducts hearings on the national labs and on a proposal to abolish the Department of Commerce. Converting DOE to DOS, Walker said, would increase the department's prominence and influence, but would also save money.


In his final address as a public official, DOE Deputy Secretary William White warned members of the National Petroleum Council that the United States will lose its technological edge over foreign competitors if Congress and private industry continue to make sharp cuts in spending on basic and applied scientific research. "Our resources are our people and our people's technical know-how is important to the U.S.," said White, who left DOE last week and returned to his law practice in Texas. "Science and technology can come up on the wrong end if we don't watch out. If we shortchange it now, we will pay for it in the next 40 to 50 years." White also encouraged industry executives to assume a greater role in government. "We cannot exist as a country where the private sector looks at government as the enemy. We need to change the culture."


AFRD physicist Ka-Ngo Leung was pictured on the front page of the business section of last Friday's San Jose Mercury News (Aug. 11), along with DOE's Martha Krebs, and Diane Weeks, CEO of Spectrum Sciences in Santa Clara. DOE and Spectrum are providing $50,000 each in matching grants for the development of an ion implanter for the fabrication of semiconductors. Leung heads LBNL's Ion Beam Technology group.
