Additional workshops will be scheduled, he added, as Interest grows. "We've learned , in working with (these businesses), that what's important to them is sales through marketing techniques, reduction of expenses, and solicitation of government contracts," Anderson said. "We've also helped to get funding for some of them." Sources of funding, he said, range from private investors to venture capital to minority business programs. The center is a joint project of the college, the Gulf Coast Regional Small Business Development Center and the U.S. Small Business Administration. Because of the expertise of all involved in these organizations, Anderson said the college has a wide range of resources from which to draw information. "A small businessperson needs to be an expert in several different fields, from marketing to finance," he said. Therefore, the input of the sponsoring groups, as well as public support, has been essential. Recently, U.S. Congressman Jack Fields, along with Russ Gause, regional director of the Small Business Development Center in Houston, toured the Baytown facilities. Anderson noted that Fields has been "a great partner in helping small businesses" and has helped to .publicize the Baytown center whenever possible. . Already, the Texas Information Procurement Service, which assists client businesses in winning federal, state and municipal contracts, has required $9 million in signed contracts with the potential for $30 million statewide. . Because the majority of contracts for federal installations located in Texas go to out-of- state businesses, the TIPS program aids economic development by keeping more contracts in the state.

Sartre revealed as workaholic PARIS iAP> -- ICxistenlialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre emerges in a new and richly documented biography as a workaholic and Don Juan who would rather make small talk with beautiful women than have philosophical debates.

Ms, Cohen-Solal said during lunch ai the Closerie des Lilas. one of Sartre's favorite Left-Bank haunts. "There was Sartre, the public figure and monument of French culture. Then there was Sartre, the little man who set out to possess the world, the Sartre who worked at least six hours a day devouring '.ioo books a year, who abused his body with tobacco, alchohol and drugs to keep him going when others would have gone to bed " And then there was the lesser known Sartre, the insatiable womanizer with a passion for impressionable women he could take under his umg. the seducer who said he preferred talking trivialities to a pretty face than discussing philosophy with his friends and associates From his passionate relationship with his mother, widowed at 24 when Jean-Paul was only 15 months old. to the debilitating blindness of old age, the book relies on previously unknown letters and other documents, Ms. Cohen-Solal, IJ'J. crisscrossed the globe, interviewing hundreds of Sartre's friends and acquaintances who could shed light on his life. She chronicles his childhood in Thiviers and rediscovers the father Sartre never mentioned in his autobiography. "Les Mots." Besides the portrait of the committed intellectual who denounced Stalinism, publicly condemned the French army for war crimes in Algeria, defended striking auto workers and protesting university students in 1968. the. book also ;ecounts Sartre's lifelong relationship with feminist svriter Sirnone de Beauvoir. Sartre and de Beauvoir met while studying philosophy at the elite Ecole Normale. Ms. Cohen- Solal suggests that their relationship became platonic early on and that de Beauvoir struggled to control her jealousy of the newcomers. In the 1930s, Sartre established a complex, almost acrobatic system of juggling women which he maintained until his death. Cohen-Solal, a vivacious Algerian-born Jew whose previous book was a doctoral thesis on Paul Nizan, Sartre's university chum, was handpicked to write the biography by Pantheon editor Andre Schiffrin. "My goal was to combine serious scholarship, investigative reporting and good writing," Ms. Cohen-Solal said. "Who said serious books have to be poorly written and boring?''
