For April Fool's

Day in NYC

NEW YORK VP) - With just
about every clickety-clack calcu-
lated, six college students roared
through New York's subway sys-
tem Friday in a computerized April
Fool stunt. J
For .nearly 26 hours, sustained
by candy bars and a spirit of ad-
venture, they rode through every
foot of tunnel,.trestle and track in
the city's 236.7-mile system.
The: whole route, down to the
last transfer, had been worked out
inute by minute, second by sec-
ond, on a computer by the stu-
dents, members of the Rapid
Transit Club at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology.
Long Distance
"Distance meant nothing to us
-but time was everything," said
Richard Gruen, 22, of Great Neck,
N.Y., a senior in mathematics at
MIT.
The students covered a distance
roughly equal to traveling under-
ground from Boston to Washing-

ton-on:77 different trains for one
15-cent token. The actual distance
traveled exceeded the system's
mileage because of the numerous
dead end lines that had to be
traveled out, then back.
"Probably some people looked at
us racing across the platforms and
said, 'There goes a bunch of teen-
agers up to no good'," said Gruen.'
"But we love subways and to us
this was an adventure."
Had Purpose
The stunt-it was timed to end'
on April Fool's Day-does have a
tangible value. The material gath-
ered in their exhaustive- log will

enable them to duplicate the sys-
tem on a computer-and solve its
baffling, myriad problems.
Among the things the computer
had to solve for the students were:
Putting them in the right station?
at the right time and with the
right transfer.,
Putting them on an outbound
train during inbound rush hours,
and the reverse for the next rush
hour. And getting them on to cer-
tain trains at the right time to
avoid curtailed service in off,
hours.'
The entire stunt took 25 hours,
57 minutes, 20 seconds.
