Joyce Hinnefeld, assistant professor of English, was a visiting writer at Indiana-Purdue University, Fort Wayne, on April 1. She conducted a fiction workshop and gave a reading in the evening.

Muzete ríci neco o Moravian College? Proc zrovna Moravská”?* So the in-house magazine of Design Centrum in Brno, Czech Republic, asked assistant professor Anne Dutlinger, chair of the art department, when she visited last year. It submitted questions to her in August 2001, and her answers appeared in a recent issue—entirely in Czech, of course. Anne would like to initiate an exchange program between graphic design students in the U.S. and the Czech Republic. *This means: “Could you say something about Moravian College? Why ‘Moravian’ ?”

Timothy Averill, Anne’s husband, an adjunct instructor of art this semester, also teaches at Muhlenberg College. He was featured in the April 18 issue of the Morning Call’s “Go Guide” for his set design for Pentecost. The play is set in a Balkan country modeled on Croatia, and Anne’s research on the Terezín concentration camp is mentioned as one of the sources for Averill’s set.

The singles champion in the International Club’s annual Ping-Pong tournament April 14 was Aditya Khanna ’05, India. Second place went to Tuntufye Mwenisongole, a Seminary student from Tanzania. Then they teamed up to win the doubles championship, beating Amrita deZoysa ’03, Sri Lanka, and Ubin Malla ’03, Nepal.

The Lebensfeld Prizes for writing have gone to:

Lauren Schwetje ’02, Goshen, N.Y., “MysTori: The Prophet Amos,” and Jake Hallman ’02, Macungie, “Reality Bites—and Freakin’ Hard,” first place for an essay by an upper division writer, with an honorable mention to Sara Rafferty ’03, Hellertown, for “The Changing Image of Augustus.”

Bill Trub ’03, Brick, N.J., “Figs,” best short story, with an honorable mention to Christina Binder ’04, Catasauqua, “Through Jewel’s Eyes.”

Kathleen Gaige ’03, Allentown, “Oracle,” best poem.

Some of these works are published in Manuscript, the College’s literary magazine. All should be available on the Writing Center’s web site by the summer, said faculty advisor Joyce Hinnefeld.

One of the 100 voices in Saucon Valley School District’s April 27 “Night of 100 Voices” was Marty Jo (“This Week on Hound Hill”) Moyle, secretary for the athletics department, appearing under her stage name of Marty Ollman. (She’s married to Richard Ollman, assistant track and field coach.) Their talented daughter Lauren, 18, who attends Moravian Academy, also was in the show.

Doug Becker ’02, Fleetwood, and Amrita deZoysa ’03, Sri Lanka, presented results of their research projects at the 78th annual meeting of the Pennsylvania Academy of Science, April 5-7 at Mount Pocono.

• Doug’s senior honors project was “Impact of Human Activity on the Diversity, Abundance, and Behavior of Shore Birds,” a study begun last summer during an internship at the Wetlands Institute, Stone Harbor, N.J. Frank Kuserk, professor of biology, was project advisor and co-author of the paper.

• Amrita based “Time-Dependence of TCDD-Induced CYP1A1 Expression as Measured by EROD Activity, Western and Northern Blots” on work she completed last summer for a National Science Foundation program at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Advisors and co-authors were Don Hosier, professor of biology, and Karl Rozman of UK Med Center.

The beat goes on for Neil Wetzel, director of jazz studies and artist-lecturer in saxophone. Wetzel is a member of the Eric Mintel Quartet, which has released its latest CD, “Hopscotch,” recorded in January in Foy Hall. The quartet’s first CD, “Live,” was recorded in February 2001 at the Allentown Art Museum.

Rosalind Remer, associate professor of history, reviewed Jeffrey L. Pasley’s ‘The Tyranny of Printers’: Newpaper Politics in the Early American Republic for the June 2002 issue of Reviews in American History. Ros will be at Columbia University this summer at a seminar on slavery studies.

While on vacation in Florida, alert reader Harriet Green, mother of InCommon’s editor, saw a Moravian reference in the program for the national tour of The Music Man. There among the Mayor’s Wife’s Friends, cackling “pick-a-little, talk-a-little,” was Lynn Schwarzbach Mastio ’83. (Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! ) Thanks also to Frank Kuserk, who spotted Mastio in the program when the show played in Philadelphia.

Trish Glazebrook, visiting assistant professor of philosophy, attended the American Philosophical Association (Central Division) meeting April 24-27 in Chicago, where she was the respondent to a paper on Heidegger by a graduate student from Loyola University, Chicago.
