Summer camp -- lab style

By Brennan Kreller,

Thirty-two youngsters in grades 1 through 7 have spent the last week at the Laboratory learning science the fun way, with hands-on experiments, demonstrations, and field trips, as well as recreational activities to round out the day.

It's all part of the new Science Exploration Camp for children of Lab employees. The second week of the three-week camp ends today.

Each morning the campers assemble at the cafeteria to conduct their own experiments, learn about chemical reactions, play math games, and study ecology during nature walks. After lunch, they head for the Strawberry Canyon pool, a nearby park, or local hiking trails.

The camp is a pilot project undertaken by a subcommittee of the Lab's Work/Family Committee. The committee was an outgrowth of the Child Care Center Working Group, headed by Deputy Director Pier Oddone.

The camp came together after two years of research and planning. In July, the subcommittee formed a non-profit corporation and in August signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Laboratory. The same subcommittee members share the day-to-day direction of the camp, which is staffed by two group leaders, two assistant counselors and several volunteers.

Jill Geller of Earth Sciences, a camp director, said the camp has been a success so far. "Parents have responded very positively," she said. "They appreciate the convenience of the on-site camp, and they can even have lunch with their children."

The future of the camp will depend on feedback from the pilot program. We think "the potential for a summer-long camp is there," said Geller, "and we are planning to explore options for a fuller program next year."

Anyone interested in planning or enrollment for next summer's camp should contact Science Exploration camp president Jim Lutz at X7302. Other camp directors include Janet Jacobsen, Tammy Campbell, Diana Attia, Glen Dahlbacka, and Meg Carroll.

Laboratory gearing up for October Open House

By Ron Kolb,

Promotional announcements and publicity will begin next week for the Laboratory's Open House, to be held Saturday, Oct. 28. In the spirit of the theme "Opening Doors to the Future," the event will feature more than 50 special activities, including tours, scientific lectures, exhibits and demonstrations, a family science tent, food, and music.

"At a time when federal spending on science is under intense scrutiny, it becomes more important than ever that we tell our constituents how important our work really is to their lives and to the future of our country," Lab Director Charles Shank said. "An open house gives us the opportunity to share the value and excitement of research with our public stakeholders."

Planning coordinators for Laboratory divisions and programs have been working for the last few months on ways to showcase their work for Bay Area residents and employees visiting between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. that day. Visitors will be greeted by a 40-by-60-foot canopy in the cafeteria parking lot, where Lab representatives and displays will guide them to tours, open labs and special programs.

Highlights will include public tours of user facilities such as the Advanced Light Source, the National Center for Electronic Microscopy and the 88-Inch Cyclotron, and a special lecture series in the Bldg. 50 Auditorium. Speakers will include Nobel Laureate Glenn Seaborg, Eric Norman and Jay Marx of Nuclear Science, Robert Cahn of Physics, Peter Schultz of Materials Sciences, and Mina Bissell of Life Sciences.

A number of programs have been designed especially for children. Local science teachers will present a variety of hands-on activities at the Family Science Tent in the Bldg. 50 parking lot. Special Science Discovery Theatre programs will be staged in the Bldg. 66 Auditorium with the assistance of the Lawrence Hall of Science. A team of "science wanderers"--costumed student volunteers--will walk around with science questions and information.

The preliminary program includes:

The cafeteria and several local restaurants are sponsoring food booths in the central staging area. The Lab's Music Club will provide entertainment on the cafeteria lawn.

A complete schedule of activities will be available in about two weeks (watch for it in Currents).

Transportation presents a special challenge for the Open House. Since much of the Lab will be open to pedestrians, automobile traffic will be limited. Employees with valid permits will be able to park in designated lots inside the Blackberry and Strawberry entrance gates, as space allows. No other parking will be available except to Open House volunteers.

Visitors will be directed to several lots along Hearst Avenue, where they will be able to park for free and ride a shuttle bus to the Laboratory. Four off-site buses will travel continuous loop routes with stops at the downtown Berkeley BART station and along Hearst. Passengers will disembark in the parking lot at the Cyclotron Road "Y" for the short walk to the cafeteria lot and the welcome canopy. Shuttle buses will also run regularly around the Lab site, staffed with volunteer tour guides.

Posters and flyers will be distributed to stores, libraries and schools. A special phone line has been established (510-486-6999) to provide taped information on the program, transportation and parking, and children's activities. Selected newspaper advertising will also promote the event.

For more information about Open House, contact Susan Torrano at X6734. n

Volunteers needed

The Open House Organizing Committee is looking for volunteers to assist with preparations and activities for the Oct. 28 event. Help is needed with the following functions: If you are interested in helping out, please contact Susan Torrano (X6734 or A group meeting for all volunteers will be scheduled for late September.

In memoriam -- Edward C. Hartwig

Edward C. Hartwig, former head of the Lab's Electronic Engineering Department, died on April 11. He was 78.

Hartwig came to LBNL from Westinghouse Corp. in 1952. He was matrixed to Livermore, where he worked on mercury pool tubes, the energy flow from capacitors, and the application of coaxial geometry to large pulsed power systems.

He returned to Berkeley in 1957 to work on the HILAC and Bevatron accelerators. He was responsible for the Advanced Accelerator Design study, including magnet design and the RF Injector, Power, and Control groups.

In the 1970s, Hartwig was head of the electrical systems of the Proton-Electron-Positron joint construction project with SLAC at Stanford. Later he joined the Heavy Ion Fusion project in AFRD.

From 1977 until his retirement in 1986, Hartwig headed the Electronics Engineering Department. After retiring, Hartwig continued to do consulting work for the Lab's Heavy Ion Fusion Group. A colleague said Hartwig's "engineering know-how would be very difficult to replace."

Hartwig is survived by his wife, Phyllis, of Walnut Creek, daughters Elaine, Dyanne, and Patricia, and three grandchildren.

In memoriam -- Charles G. Dols

Charles Dols, an electronics engineer at LBNL for 41 years, died on May 25 after a long illness in Willits, Calif. He was 76.

Dols started at the Lab in 1950 with the Special Design Problems group in the Electronics Engineering Department. In 1954 he became head of the Magnet Testing Group, where he was responsible for magnetic measurements, solar energy and physics instrumentation projects, the installation and use of software aids to microprocessor systems, and other control system problems for large accelerator and biomedical experiments.

After retiring in 1981, Dols continued using state-of-the-art engineering. He designed and built an allergy-free home in Willits, complete with a solar-powered, photovoltaic electrical system.

"Charles was always a man ahead of his time," said Don Nelson, who was a coworker in the Electronics Engineering Department. "His curious nature, wide-ranging knowledge, and ability to spur his colleagues toward perfection was difficult to replace when he left the Laboratory."

He is survived by his wife, Patricia Kriegler-Dols, of Forest Knolls, Calif., daughters Kit Morris and Nancy Neithammer, and stepson Jay Kriegler.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Willits Hospital Hospice Program, Willits, CA 95490.

An outstanding high school student from Arcadia has won the 11th annual Ernest O. Lawrence Nobel Travel Award, presented by the Lawrence Hall of Science. The honor distinquishes Wallace Huang, 18, as one of California's top high school students. Huang, a graduating senior from Alhambra High School who has been accepted to Stanford University, will travel to Sweden, all expenses paid, to attend the 1995 Nobel ceremony in December. He was selected from more than 30 students from around the state. The award is the brainchild of LBNL Associate Director at Large and Nobel Laureate Glenn Seaborg, who is chairman of the Hall of Science. The award honors LBNL founder Ernest O. Lawrence, who invented the cyclotron and became UC's first Nobel laureate (physics, 1939).


The American Association for the Advancement of Science released a report this week in which it claimed that federal financing of nonmilitary scientific research in this country will decline by one-third within seven years. DOE is projected to be one of the hardest hit of all the science-funding agencies with a total reduction of 47.4 percent forseen by the year 2002. Only the Commerce Department, with a projected 50-percent reduction in funding cuts, fared worse. Overall spending on nonmilitary research was projected to decline by 32.9 percent. AAAS, which tracks scientific funding in the U.S.r, based its projections on the budget resolution passed by Congress on June 29 and on subsequent actions by the House and Senate in drafting appropriations bills for FY96. AAAS called the projected reductions the "most-significant across-the-board funding cuts to research and development in the post-World War II era," and warned that "the long-term effects of dismantling a coherent scientific enterprise could be very harmful." Albert Teich, who directed the study, said Congress is moving too hastily and without adequate information. "Now we have an awful lot of new people in Congress who don't have any connection with science. It is up to the scientific community to try to reach them." Teich said, however, that much could happen by the year 2002 to change these projections.


After an 18-month review of nearly 250,000 pages of documents, DOE has concluded its investigation into experiments with radiation involving human subjects. The $14-million review found that studies that played a role in understanding how the body functions both normally and in a state of disease accounted for 65 percent of the experiments. Studies aimed at developing new diagnostic techniques and treatments comprised 30 percent of the total, and the rest were largely dose response studies to determine the biological effects of radiation and help set standards for protection. Dr. Tara O'Toole, assistant secretary for environment, safety, and health, told reporters that while "a cursory review does raise some troubling ethical problems," the department will leave it up to the Presidential Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments to pass judgment. Copies of the final report, entitled Human Radiation Experiments Associated with the U.S. Department of Energy and Its Predecessors, are available to Lab employees from the Office of Scientific and Technical Information, P.O. Box 62, Oak Ridge, TN 37831. The 213-page document has 39 pages on experiments at LBNL.

Hispanic Heritage Month

In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, the Laboratory is sponsoring a number of events throughout September, the month in which Americans celebrate the heritage and contributions of the country's Hispanic population. The first two events are described below; watch Currents for announcement of future events. Look also for special Wednesday menus in the cafeteria. Hispanic Heritage Month activities are sponsored by the Laboratory with the assistance of Office of Work Force Diversity and the Latino and Native American Association.

Mexican Dance troupe

Noon, Friday, Sept. 8

México Danza Mexican Folkdance Company of Hayward, under the direction of René González, will perform outside the cafeteria at noon.

Special guest lecture

Noon, Monday, Sept. 11

Carlos Muñoz Jr., professor of Chicano Studies in the UC Berkeley Department of Ethnic Studies, will speak on "Multicultural Democracy or Apartheid: America's Choice for the 21st Century," at noon on Monday, Sept. 11, in the Bldg. 50 Auditorium.

Muñoz is one of the country's most respected experts on ethnic and racial politics, multiculturalism, immigration, and affirmative action. He received a Ph.D. in government from the Claremont Graduate School and was the founding chair of the first Mexican American/Chicano Studies Department in the United States while at Cal State University Los Angeles in 1967.

Muñoz has authored numerous publications on multiracial coalitions and on the Chicano/Latino experience. He has also been a lead organizer or advisor for several national movements and coalitions, including the Faculty for Human Rights in the Americas, the Rainbow Coalition, and the Jesse Jackson Presidential Campaign.

Have an idea that celebrates diversity?

The Diversity Committee invites all employees to submit suggestions for events or activities to be sponsored by the Laboratory that celebrate diversity in the work place. Deadline for submissions is Tuesday, Sept. 5. The ideas, from either individuals or employee groups, will be used to develop a Laboratory Diversity Calendar. All ideas will receive consideration and a prompt response.

Suggestions for diversity activities or events should be forwarded in writing (or by electronic mail) to a Diversity Committee representative, the Committee Co-Chairpersons (Mary Worth and Janet Jacobsen), or to Gail Kato in the Work Force Diversity Office. Contact Kato (X6588) for a current listing of Committee members.

Currents takes a break

Because of the Sept. 4 Labor Day holiday, Currents will not be published on Friday, Sept. 8. Publication will resume on Friday, Sept. 15.

UCOP goes online with new web site

The UC Office of the President has activated a new UCOP web site on the subject of DOE lab management. The address is The site includes the newsletter LabSOURCE and provides more information from UC about its lab-management role. It is best viewed using the current version of Netscape.

Time to prepare for LBNL Runaround XVIII

On Friday, Sept. 22, Lab employees will take to the hills for the 18th annual LBNL Runaround. The course is 3 kilometers (1.86 miles) long, with some steep slopes (see elevation map). The event begins at noon near the LBNL Firehouse (Bldg. 48), and ends at the cafeteria parking lot. (There may be slight adjustments to the course this year to steer clear of construction sites.) You do not have to be a runner to participate. Walkers and striders are welcome. All finishers will receive a free T-shirt. The first official BikeAround--strictly noncompetitive--begins at 11:30 a.m. in the same location, and should finish in plenty of time for bikers to join in the Runaround. Let's start getting in shape now!
