UW-Green Bay lecture: 'Nurse Without Borders' will tell about helping to heal in world's troubled spots

GREEN BAY-Mary Lightfine, a nurse who has volunteered for more than 10 years to bring emergency aid to some of the world's most troubled spots through the international organization Doctors Without Borders, will speak twice on Wednesday, March 5 at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.

Lightfine will be the keynote speaker at noon at the annual Women's Recognition Luncheon, which requires a ticket. She also will present a free lecture at 8 p.m. Both events are in the Phoenix Rooms of the University Union on the campus at 2420 Nicolet Dr.

Lightfine has delivered babies in the jungle, stepped over bodies of dying famine victims to give food to those who could still benefit, traveled to remote villages to distribute relief supplies after a hurricane, lived in a thatched hut while teaching local health workers to give immunizations, and worked 100-hour weeks in refugee camps to help war victims who suffered physical and psychological traumas. In Mogadishu, she was ambushed and shot at.

Since first volunteering with Doctors Without Borders in 1992, Lightfine has been on so many missions she has to concentrate to count the number of times and places: Afghanistan and Somalia twice each, Kenya ("countless times"), Uganda ("three or more times"), Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Rwanda, Burundi, Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Tajikistan, Nicaragua, Macedonia. She has done two tours on cruise ship missions that stop at many locations.

Lightfine has sought specialized training, including a certificate in tropical medicine and community health at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in England. From 1992 to 1997, Lightfine only returned to the U.S. for a week or two a year.

After five years overseas, Lightfine located to New York where she worked for a time as a recruiter and lecturer on behalf of Doctors Without Borders, while still accepting overseas missions.

Lightfine, who now lives in Florida, presently lectures independently and is working on a book. She has been interviewed on ABC, NBC and CNN news programs, and was the subject of a "Life" magazine feature. She recently finished a documentary film. Lightfine continues to volunteer with Doctors Without Borders and is exploring a mission for summer 2003.

Before joining Doctors Without Borders, Lightfine spent 16 years working in emergency rooms in Ohio, Florida, California, and Georgia, mostly in trauma units.

Doctors Without Borders is a nonprofit organization founded in 1971 by a group of French doctors. It provides emergency help to victims of armed conflict, epidemics, and natural and man-made disasters. The organization received the 1999 Nobel Peace Prize. A number of volunteers have died in its service.

Women's Recognition Luncheon tickets are $5 and are available at the information center of University Union at (920) 465-2400.

GREEN BAY -- A University of Wisconsin-Green Bay band concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 1 in the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts on the campus at 2420 Nicolet Dr. includes a program of Latin music by the Wind Ensemble, and selections including an homage to Herman Melville's "Moby Dick," by the Symphonic Band.

The Wind Ensemble will perform "Batuque," an Afro-Brazilian dance, by Oscar Lorenzo Fernandez; "La Fiesta Mexicana," by H. Owen Reed; a Brazilian composer's view of J. S. Bach, "Aria," from Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5, by Heitor Villa-Lobos; and "Danza Final," from the ballet "Estancia," by Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera.

International student Ricardo Vogt will provide a vocal interlude of Brazilian samba and batuque music, accompanying himself on guitar. Kevin Collins, director of bands, directs the Wind Ensemble.

Faculty member Rebecca Tout directs the Symphonic Band. They'll perform themes from "Green Bushes" by Percy Grainger; excerpts from the Finale of Symphony No. 3 by Gustav Mahler; and Leroy Anderson's "Blue Tango."

They'll close with "Of Sailors and Whales," five scenes from Herman Melville's "Moby Dick," by W. Francis McBeth. Cmdr. Lewis Buckley of the U.S. Coast Guard Band, wrote text for the scenes that are titled after characters in the novel. UW-Green Bay Theater major Shayne Steliga will perform the narration. Steliga has a long list of credits in UW-Green Bay theater productions, and has performed with St. Croix Valley Summer Theatre, Milwaukee Repertory Theatre's Teenworks and other community efforts. He is co-host of public television's "Cultural Horizons" program.

Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for students. The numbers for tickets are (920) 465-2271, and (800) 328-8587.

UW-Green Bay sets record for fall-to-spring retention rate

GREEN BAY - Reflecting the quality of the freshman class, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay this year set a record for the percentage of new freshmen returning for a second semester.

UW-Green Bay reported that 890 freshmen - or 93 percent of new freshmen enrolled in fall 2002 - re-enrolled at the University for the spring semester. That's well above the re-enrollment rates of recent years, which peaked three times at 90 percent.

Among the new freshmen returning for the spring semester were 52 minority students, or 93 percent of the 56 minority freshmen enrolled in the fall semester. During the previous five years, the percentage of minority new freshmen who returned for the second semester ranged from 75 percent during the 1998-99 academic year to 85 percent in 2001-02.

Sue Hammersmith, UW-Green Bay Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, said she is pleased with the University's record fall-to-spring retention numbers for the general student population as well as for minority students.

While it is too early to attribute the strong retention to any specific factors, UW-Green Bay's efforts to assist freshmen with the transition to college may be paying off, Hammersmith said. UW-Green Bay is attracting high-caliber students, she said, and both faculty and staff are going the extra mile to connect with these students.

"These numbers certainly are moving in the right direction," she said. "We will continue to work to improve the quality of the undergraduate experience, which is reflected in our retention and graduation rates."

UW-Green Bay this year initiated the First-Year Contact program in which each freshman is assigned a faculty or staff contact. First-Year Contact supplements the Introduction to College Program, an orientation program that introduces freshmen to various resources on campus and provides them with opportunities to become acquainted with other students.

Deborah Furlong, UW-Green Bay Director of Institutional Research, said each 1 percent gain in retention translates to about 10 additional students staying in school.

"Those are students who are continuing in higher education and pursuing the opportunities higher education provides for them," Furlong said.

The freshman class that entered UW-Green Bay last fall was one of the best-prepared classes in the University's history. The class entered UW-Green Bay with an average high school grade point average of 3.37 on a 4.0 scale, the best ever for a UW-Green Bay freshman class.

Guest artist to appear in UW-Green Bay play

GREEN BAY -- Tina Marie Wright, Chicago, will be the guest artist in the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay production of "Flyer" at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28; Saturday, March 1; and Thursday through Saturday, March 6-8 in University Theater located in Theater Hall on the campus at 2420 Nicolet Dr.

Wright will portray Bessie Coleman, an early 20th century aviator and barnstormer who was the first African-American woman to earn a pilot's license.

Wright has numerous regional acting credits including Stella in "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "Unforgettable: Nat King Cole" with the Black Ensemble Theatre, and Chicago Jeff Award-winning productions, "The Good Times are Killing Me," and "Young, Gifted and Black." Among other credits, Wright is a drama instructor for Columbia College's Camp Gear-Up.

The character of Bessie Coleman serves as inspiration for the play's lead, a character based on the women pilots who sought to become astronauts in the early 1960s, but who were ultimately denied entry to NASA's space program because they were women.

"The play is about the determination in people that gives them the strength to follow their passion, even when there are great obstacles," says Director Laura Riddle, chair of the UW-Green Bay Theater program.

Guest artist support is being provided by a grant from the Northeast Wisconsin Arts Council, a UW-Green Bay Campus Diversity Grant, the UW-Green Bay Theater First Nighters, and the Weidner Family Endowment . UW-Green Bay performance events also receive support from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the state of Wisconsin.

Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door for adults; $10 in advance and $12 at the door for seniors and those under 17; and $8 for UW-Green Bay students. The numbers for tickets are (920) 465-2217 or (800) 328-8587.

Lawton Gallery exhibits '50 Projects, 50 Weeks'

GREEN BAY -- "Fig-1: 50 Projects in 50 Weeks," opens with a reception from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27 in the Lawton Gallery, located in Theater Hall room 230 at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, 2420 Nicolet Dr. Curator of Art Stephen Perkins will speak about the exhibit at 5 p.m. Admission is free.

According to Perkins, the exhibit documents a series of one-week exhibits during 2000 — the millennium year — at Fig-1, a small gallery space in London, England. "50 Projects in 50 Weeks" was the project of two London curators, one of whom was founding director and former curator of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.

The exhibit at UW-Green Bay consists of posters documenting each artist's exhibition.

Art works in "50 Projects in 50 Weeks" included installations, film, video, painting, sculpture, performance art, fashion, slide projection, photography, architecture, embroidery, a war kite, and other media. The artists included well known figures such as Gilbert and George, and others who were unknown.

The poster series documenting the yearlong project was created after the exhibits closed.

The UW-Green Bay exhibit continues through March 28, except for March 15-24 when the gallery is closed for spring break.

Lawton Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The number for information is 465-2271.

Grant to UW-Green Bay faculty will improve manure-to-electricity process

GREEN BAY-Professors Michael Zorn and John Katers of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay have received a $60,080 grant from the Focus on Energy Renewable Energy Program to study new ways to convert manure solids to methane that can then be used to produce electricity.

Zorn says the objectives are to demonstrate that alternative technologies such as anaerobic photocatalysis and catalysis may improve the methane generation capability of anaerobic digestion systems such as the one being used in a demonstration manure-to-electricity project at Tinedale Farm in Wrightstown.

Katers has been involved in the development and on-going monitoring of the Tinedale Farm project, which officially launched in June 2001. The farm sells its excess electricity to Milwaukee-based Wisconsin Electric Power Company through a green power contract, which fulfills a state mandate requiring power companies to obtain part of their energy from renewable resources. Tinedale Farm owner Carl Theunis has said his goal is to turn manure management into a profit center rather than a cost center, protect the environment, and make large dairy operations better neighbors.

Zorn notes that knowledge gained through the new grant will apply to any manure-to-electricity installation. Zorn, a chemist, and Katers, an environmental engineer, both teach in the Natural and Applied Sciences academic unit at UW-Green Bay.

Classical, jazz music on program for Pfotenhauer recital

GREEN BAY -- Classical music by living composers and jazz selections will share the program when University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Prof. Thomas Pfotenhauer presents a trumpet recital at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28 in Fort Howard Hall of the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts on the campus at 2420 Nicolet Dr. Admission is free.

Pfotenhauer will open the program with Little Suite for Trumpet and Piano, by Mary Weldon Leahy, and Concertino for Trumpet and Piano by Ida Gotkovsky. He will be accompanied on piano by Namji Kim, also a UW-Green Bay faculty member. Pfotenhauer discovered both compositions while working on his doctoral dissertation on American women composers of music for the trumpet.

Mike Henckel, principal trumpet with the Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra, will join Pfotenhauer for three of the Concert Duets, by Anthony Plog.

The jazz half of the program will include a Pfotenhauer composition, "KW," written in honor of Canadian jazz trumpeter Kenny Wheeler. Pfotenhauer also arranged Sting's "Fragile." Other jazz selections include "Howard Beach," by Ron Miles, and "Viable Blues," by Tom Harrell.

Pfotenhauer will be joined on the jazz selections by Stefan Hall, guitar; Craig Hanke, bass; and Terry Iattoni, drums. Hall and Hanke are UW-Green Bay faculty members, and Iattoni is a UW-Green Bay alumnus.

UW-Green Bay to tighten security on campus

GREEN BAY - In response to heightened security alerts from state and federal authorities, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is taking steps to tighten security on campus.

UW-Green Bay students and employees and visitors to the campus can expect new parking restrictions. For example, parking areas in front of the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts and the Phoenix Sports Center will be limited to passenger drop-off only. Additional parking restrictions may be imposed later.

In addition, bags or packages carried into the Weidner Center, Phoenix Sports Center and other campus events may be subject to spot checks.

UW-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard said the new security measures are aimed at the protection of the University’s students, employees and visitors.

“We have to take reasonable steps to address the situation while at the same time not damaging what the University is all about,” Shepard said.

Randy Christopherson, UW-Green Bay Director of Public Safety, said University officials are well aware that extra security can be considered an inconvenience.

“But our responsibilities to the campus and community are clear,” Christopherson said. “Also, there is a value in alerting people of the need to be more aware of their surroundings.”

The U.S. Department of Justice last week raised the nation’s terror assessment level to “orange,” or high risk of terrorist attack. Level “orange” means that while there is not necessarily a specific, credible threat, it is believed there is a general, high risk of terror attack. This is only the second time in the last year the threat level has been raised to “orange.”

Gov. Jim Doyle has encouraged Wisconsin residents to be “aware and cautious” of their surroundings and to report any suspicious activities to local law enforcement officials.

UW-Green Bay has reminded all students and employees that under a “heightened alert” they should report anything that appears suspicious to their supervisors or to the University’s Public Safety office.

University officials also are conducting a comprehensive review of issues related to building access, security and emergency-response procedures.

UW-Green Bay play dramatizes first women in space program

GREEN BAY-"Flyer," a play about the first women who sought to become astronauts, will open at 7:30 p.m. Friday Feb. 28 in University Theater, located in Theater Hall at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, 2420 Nicolet Dr. The performances presented by the UW-Green Bay Theater program continue on Saturday, March 1, and Thursday through Saturday, March 6 - 8.

Director Laura Riddle, chair of the UW-Green Bay Theater program, says the tragedy of the space shuttle Columbia breakup on Feb. 1 has given the play immediacy that she could not have imagined when she selected it months ago.

The facts underlying "Flyer" are this: In 1961, a number of women pilots underwent rigorous screening for NASA's space program. Thirteen were admitted, but after they had undergone grueling training, a U.S. Senate subcommittee decided that women astronauts would be an "unnecessary complication" in the U.S.-Soviet space race, and the trainees were denied the opportunity. It was nearly 20 years after the events dramatized in "Flyer" that the first women finally became astronauts.

"Fran, the central character, is representative of all of the women who went through this experience," explains Riddle.

Guest artist Tina Marie Wright, Chicago, will portray Bessie Coleman, a real person who was the first African American woman to receive a pilot's license. Wright has numerous regional acing credits including Stella in "A Steetcar Named Desire" and "Unforgettable: Nat King Cole" with the Black Ensemble Theatre, and Chicago Jeff Award-winning productions, "The Good Times are Killing Me," and "Young, Gifted and Black."

Bessie Coleman serves as the inspiration for Fran as she pursues her dream of becoming an astronaut. A few other "real" characters appear, including Orville Wright and pilot Jacqueline Cochrane.

Terra Schultz, Withee, has the role of Fran. Schultz's performance in "Our Town" in October 2002 earned her the opportunity to compete in the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship competition at the regional American College Theater Festival in January.

"This play is very much about the determination in people that gives them the strength to follow their passion, even when there are great obstacles," says Riddle, adding that while watching interviews with their survivors, she sensed that same quality in the astronauts who perished on Feb. 1.

Riddle says "Flyer" initially appealed to her on several levels: It is about women's history, and it would be being performed during March, which is Women's History Month; and there's a campus tie-in because the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium is located at UW-Green Bay.

Kaiome Malloy is the costume designer, and R. Michael Ingraham is the technical director. Both are members of the faculty. Three students have major design responsibilities: Darci White, Hartford, is the scene designer; Zacharia Viviano, Green Bay, is lighting designer; and Chris Woller, Kingsford, Mich., is the sound designer. Eric Klingbeil, Trempealeau, is supervisor for the sequences where Fran "flies."

Guest artist support is being provided by a grant from the Northeast Wisconsin Arts Council, a UW-Green Bay Campus Diversity Grant, the UW-Green Bay Theater First Nighters, and the Weidner Family Endowment. UW-Green Bay performance events also receive support from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the state of Wisconsin.

Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door for adults; $10 in advance and $12 at the door for seniors and those under 17; and $8 for UW-Green Bay students. The numbers for tickets are (920) 465-2217 or (800) 328-8587.

GREEN BAY-Classical accordionist Stas Venglevski is the featured artist in the next Chamber Music at Green Bay series at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22 in Fort Howard Hall of the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, 2420 Nicolet Dr.

Venglevski plays the bayan, an instrument invented early in the 20th century, and one that is highly regarded in Russia. His repertoire includes a broad range of classical, contemporary and ethnic music. A native of the Republic of Moldova, Venglevski earned a master's degree from the Russian Academy of Music in Moscow where he studied with famed bayanist Friedrich Lips. He immigrated to the United States in 1992 and presently lives in Milwaukee.

Venglevski will perform as a soloist and with John Simkus, a Chicago-area performer known for his jazz style.

Venglevski has toured extensively throughout the former Soviet Union, Canada, and the United States, including performances with many symphony orchestras. He participates regularly in the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra's Arts in Community Education program, has done television commercials, and performed in theater productions. His recordings include a transcription of Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Suite," and he has published a book of compositions.

Simkus performs with the Johnny Matt Trio and The Simkus Quintet. He also performs as a soloist and with other groups. He toured Europe with the Kansas City, Missouri, Accordion Orchestra. Simkus has been president of the Chicago Accordion Club for 10 years and has held leadership roles in many national accordion organizations.

Venglevski and Simkus have toured the United States as a duo and collaborated on a recent CD, "Seasoning," a compilation of waltzes Venglevski composed in 2002.

Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for students. The numbers for tickets are (920) 465-2217 or (800) 328-8587.

Animal tracking workshop is Feb. 22 at UW-Green Bay

GREEN BAY - Finding and identifying animal tracks is the topic of a free workshop from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 22 in the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity located in Mary Ann Cofrin Hall room 212 at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, 2420 Nicolet Dr.. The workshop is free, but advance registration is required due to limited space.

Prof. Robert W. Howe, director of the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity, and a professor of Natural and Applied Sciences, will lead the workshop.

Winter snow provides special opportunities to detect the presence of mammals that often are seldom seen due to their nocturnal habits, says Howe. He will describe the fundamentals of animal tracking and some of the guides for detecting animal signs. Howe will include tracks of domestic and feral animals that can be confused with wild species.

The second half of the session is a field trip into the Cofrin Arboretum to search for mammal signs. The Arboretum is home to red and gray foxes, weasels, raccoons, field mice, squirrels, white-tailed deer, and other active winter animals. Participants should dress appropriately for a winter field trip.

Howe, who joined UW-Green Bay in 1984, has an international reputation in the study of animal population dynamics, especially forest birds. He has worked on many collaborative projects with state and federal agencies, and with private organizations such as The Nature Conservancy. Howe has taught the University's course in Mammology for the past 18 years.

The workshop is part of a yearlong series inaugurated in August 2002 by the UW-Green Bay Cofrin Center for Biodiversity. The next workshop, Spring Wildflowers, is scheduled for May 17. Information on the workshop series is available online at www.uwgb.edu/biodiversity.

The number to register is (920) 465-5032. Registration may be made by email to wolfa@uwgb.edu.

Date is changed for Spanish filmmaker presentation

GREEN BAY - Spanish filmmaker Helena Taberna will present her film, "Extranjeras" at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18 at the historic West Theater, Walnut and Broadway. A reception for Taberna preceding the film will begin at 6 p.m.

The presentation, part of the Green Bay Film Society international film series held at the Neville Public Museum of Brown County, originally was scheduled for Wednesday, March 5.

"Extranjeras" is a documentary about women immigrants to Spain from North Africa and Latin America. It was released in 2002. The film had its U.S. premiere at the New York Film Festival, and recently won awards in Spain. Taberna will lead a discussion on immigration issues after the showing. Taberna's visit to Green Bay is supported by a grant from the Northeast Wisconsin Arts Council.

UW-Green Bay Prof. David Coury, coordinator of the film series, says the date change was necessitated by Taberna's transportation schedule.

The schedule change means that two films in the Film Society series will be shown in the same week. "Yellow Asphalt," a 2000 film from Israel, will be screened at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19 at the Neville Public Museum.

UW-Green Bay to cut off new-freshman applications Feb. 14

GREEN BAY-The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will stop accepting most new-freshman applications for the fall 2003 semester Friday, Feb. 14, University officials announced today.

The decision to cut off new-freshman applications for the fall semester is due to strong enrollment demand and the need to meet enrollment targets.

The early application cutoff is consistent with actions taken in recent years in the face of increasing demand to enroll at UW-Green Bay. For the past two years, the University has stopped accepting applications Feb. 15.

"We expect to be at 100 percent of capacity as a result of enrollment trends," UW-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard said. "That makes it necessary to take action at this time."

As of Feb. 1, UW-Green Bay had received 2,802 new-freshman applications, an increase of 20 percent from the same time one year ago. The University is projecting a freshman class of 846 full-time equivalent students next fall.

UW-Green Bay has a state-approved target of 4,384 full-time equivalent students for fall 2003. The FTE enrollment is based on the number of credits taken and is used in measuring the University's capacity. The enrollment target was established to balance enrollment and available resources, including adequate class sections and student services.

The University is expected to have an overall headcount enrollment - the total number of people taking classes - of about 5,300 students next fall.

Steven Neiheisel, assistant dean for enrollment services/registrar, said the application numbers reflect steadily growing demand for a UW-Green Bay education.

"The demand has been growing for several years," he said. "It's continuing that positive spiral."

Shepard said UW-Green Bay must stop accepting new-freshman applications despite the fact that a larger-than-normal senior class will graduate in May.

"UWGB remains hot," the Chancellor said. "Students want to get in here. And even though we are admitting more students than ever because of a very large graduating class, the strong demand still forces us to close early."

UW-Green Bay will make some exceptions to the Feb. 14 application cutoff for new freshmen. Exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis for freshmen who would enrich the campus community through special talent, diversity and other circumstances.

UW-Green Bay will continue to accept applications from transfer students, which typically come in later than freshman applications. The University is projecting about 400 new transfer students next fall.

Applications also will continue to be accepted from students in various other programs and categories, including re-enrolling, graduate, nursing completion and Extended Degree students.

For more information about applying to UW-Green Bay, contact the Admissions and Orientation Office at (920) 465-2111.

UW-Green Bay artist, scientist set gallery talk on joint project

GREEN BAY -- Professors Carol Emmons and Jeffrey Nekola will give a "brown bag" gallery talk on their installation "Terra Firma I: Distance Decay," on exhibit in the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Faculty Art Show, at noon Thursday, Feb. 13 in the Lawton Gallery, located in room 249 of Theater Hall on the campus at 2420 Nicolet Dr. The event is free and open to the public.

Emmons, an artist, and Nekola, an ecologist, collaborated on the project.

Curator of Art Stephen Perkins, says to his knowledge this is the first joint project between an artist and a scientist to be exhibited in the gallery. "This collaboration is a perfect example of the interdisciplinary philosophy that has been so central to this University's mission," says Perkins.

The project explores land and ways of sharing its experience. Emmons and Nekola took walks north, south, east and west, beginning at the Lawton Gallery. Their installation includes evidence of what they found, and research on the natural and human history of their route.

"As artist and ecologist, we share an interest in the way human beings negotiate their relation to the world...," says Emmons. "Both art and science are attempts to piece the world together into something comprehensible."

UW-Green Bay students will offer free income tax help in English and Spanish

GREEN BAY -- University of Wisconsin-Green Bay students will begin providing free income tax help on Feb. 10 and continue through April 15 at five locations in Green Bay. No tax assistance will be available the week of March 17-21 when students are on spring break.

The students attended an all-day training session given on campus by the Milwaukee office of the Internal Revenue Service, and another half day of training presented by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. The students then had to pass an exam in order to qualify to volunteer. James Loebl, lecturer in Business Administration, is the faculty adviser.

For the first time this year, Spanish-language translators will be available when students provide tax assistance on three Saturdays at St. Willebrord's Parish Center, 209 S. Adams St. Volunteers will be available at St. Willebrord's from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturdays, Feb. 22, March 29, and April 12. The parish is providing the translators.

Other tax assistance sites are:

Fort Howard Family Resource Center, 520 Dousman St.
5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays

Salvation Army, 626 Union Court
5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays

Oneida Center for Self-Sufficiency, 2640 West Point Rd.
5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays

Wood Hall at UW-Green Bay, 2420 Nicolet Dr.
3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesdays

The students are members of Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), an organization through which 71,000 volunteers assist more than 3.5 million taxpayers nationwide in completing their returns. VITA targets taxpayers with special needs, including those with disabilities or limited incomes, persons who are non-English speaking, and the elderly.

The tax-assistance program at UW-Green Bay is older than the VITA organization, and was the first such student volunteer effort in Wisconsin, according to Prof. Karl Zehms, chair of the University's Business Administration program. Zehms says he started the UW-Green Bay program in 1972 after reading in an accounting journal about a similar project at an eastern college.

Young's research has included working class African Americans and Chicago Unemployment Councils in the early 1930s, and the evolution of the anti-discrimination policy of a United Packinghouse Workers of America local from 1937-1960. Young has twice served as co-convenor of the Midwest Labor History Colloquium.

The lecture is part of the Historical Perspectives Series sponsored by the UW-Green Bay Center for History and Social Change. Young's appearance is co-sponsored by the American Intercultural Center at UW-Green Bay.
