THE BROTHERHOOD of Railway,
Airline and Steamship Clerks first
struck the Norfolk & Western Railway
Co. July 10 after two years of incon-
clusive talks aimed at protecting
clerks' jobs against automation. On
Tuesday, pickets spread the strike to
more than 40 other railroad lines.
Here in Michigan, state transpor-
tation officials said traffic on at least
three rail freight lines which receive
state assistance has been affected, the
Ann Arbor Railroad, Michigan Nor-
thern Railroad and the Lenawee County
Railroad.

Mackinac and Lake Michigan via car
ferry has been suspended due to strikes
against the Soo Line and the Green Bay
and Western.
"THE CURRENT railroad strike is
disrupting the flow of materials vital to
Michigan industry," Milliken !said in a
telegram to Transportation Secretary
Brock Adams. "Already there are in-
dications of production slowdowns
which will soon have a devastating im-
pact on Michigan's economy.
"The economic disruption on
Michigan of a prolonged strike could
quickly result in an emergency
situation justifying strong and direct
action by yourself and the President,"
Milliken said.
Picket lines around Grand Trunk
terminals in Michigan dispersed
yesterday and commuter passenger

imatum
line service for Detroit was resumed.
The strike could hit Americans in
their cereal bowl. A spokesman for the
Kellogg's Co. said a continued walkout
could close one or more of its five plan-
ts.
"There's no doubt this comes at a
very difficult time, just as farmers are
harvesting the biggest corn crop ever,"
said Agriculture Secretary Bob
Bergland in Springfield, Ill. If the
deadline passes, he warned "both sides
can expect with certainty that the ad-
ministration will take further action."
A spokesman for the Association of
American Railroads said a "vast
majority of freight is being held up"
and predicted a two-week strike would
double unemployment. About 350,000
railroad workers are directly affected
by the walkout.M

James Waters (D-Muskegon) said he
would leave it up to MSA. "I wouldn't
take any initiative myself as to having
another (student committee) setup."
"MSA has been invited to form a
committee. If they decline the in-
vitation, they may do so," Laro said.
Baker, however, would opt for
organized student input if MSA refused
to form a committee.
"If the MSA doesn't care to take part,
I would certainly move to develop an
alternative system by which students
could have an opportunity to par-
ticipate within the original
framework," Baker said.

Six stories, one plot:
The Romance of OurAge
is Technology

4 ~-Rendezvous
n Spain.
You're a software
applications
specialist.
When you picked
this career, you
never dreamed that one day you'd
rendezvous in Barcelona, Spain
with two Navy destroyers.
But when your company is Texas
Instruments and one of your cus-
tomers is the U. S. Sixth Fleet, you
learn to expect the unexpected.
The destroyers are equipped with
TI computers and they need new
software fast. You come aboard and
sail with the Fleet until your job is
completed.
Not a bad assignment for a soft-
ware specialist named Susie. You're
glad you got into technology.
The Incredible
Talking Chip.
You're an inte-
grated circuit
designer at TI.
You've helped
find a way to make
a chip talk, something no integrated
circuit has ever done before.
First application: an electronic
aid that helps children learn to spell.
The world's first talking textbook.
And that's just the beginning.-
The talking chip's potential is mind-
bending. You're glad you got into
technology.

FM N The Salesman's
mow.Dream.
You're a TI sales
engineer. You've
got what is prob-
ably one of the
most irresistible
selling messages in the history of
salesmanship.
It goes like this: "Hold this TI-59
Scientific Calculator in your hand.
Now, let's compare it to the most
popular computer of the 1950s-
the IBM 650.
"The 650 weighed almost three
tons, required five to 10 tons of air
conditioning and 45 square feet of
floor space. And it cost $200,000,
in 1955 money.
"Now look at the TI-59 Calculator
you're holding in the palm of your
hand. It has a primary memory
capacity more than double that of
the 650. It performs its principal
functions five to 10 times faster.
And it retails for under $300."
With a story like this, the hardest
part of your job is holding onto your
sample. You're glad you got into
technology.
The Joy Of
Complication.
You're in semi-
conductor design
.:at TI. You love it
when people at
parties ask you
what you do. You say, "I make
things complicated." (Pause.)
"In fact, I got promoted recently for
creating some major compl-ications."
What you mean (but seldom
explain) is this: the more active
element groups (AEGs) you can put

on a single chip of silicon, the more
the average AEG cost goes down.
In short, you make things cheaper
by making them more complicated.
Your work made it possible for a
TI consumer product that sold three
years ago for about $70 to sell
today for $14.95.
Your future looks wonderfully
complicated. You're at 30,000 AEGs
per chip now and 100,000 is in sight.
You're glad you got into
technology.
Outsmarting
Smog.
You've always
designed air-
borne radars for
TI customers.
Now, all of a
sudden you know your next radar
design is going to stay at the airport.
On the ground.
It's on the ground that traffic
controllers at Los Angeles Inter-
national Airport have a problem.
They can "see" incoming and out-
going airplanes on their radar just
fine, so long as the airplanes are in
the air.
But when the airplanes are on the
ground-touching down, taking off,
taxiing, parking -they are some-
times impossible to see and control.
Ground smog obscures them.
You believe you have an answer
to the smog problem. You dig out
the plans for an airborne ground-
mapping radar you helped design.
You adapt the design so the L. A.
controllers can use it to see through
smog. It works beautifully.
Today your smog-piercing radar
is widely known as Airport Surface

Detection Equipment (ASDE). It's
standard equipment at L. A. Inter-
national and at the airport in
Geneva, Switzerland. Other airports
with smog and snow problems are
expected to have it soon.
You're glad you're in technology.
Oil Sleuths
International.
You're a geo-
physicist. A good
one. You could be
with any of the big,
oil companies. But
you wanted to get with a company
whose specialty is the same as
yours. Exploration.
That's why you're at TI, in
Geophysical Service.
TI explorer ships, TI photo-
geologic aircraft and TI truck- and
tractor-mounted vibrator systems
are working all over the world.
They're finding oil. And they're
identifying areas where no oil.
exists, thereby saving huge losses
in drilling costs.
Also, TI's worldwide computer
network and its Advanced Scientific
Computer is making 3-D recording
and processing possible. This ex-
clusive exploration technique is the
only practical way to unscramble
"no-record" areas on land and sea.
You're a happy sleuth. You're in
on the biggest'hunt in history. And
your team is out in front.
You're glad you got into
technology.

Senate
approves
gas bill
(Continued from Page 1)
a statement: "If this monstrosity ever
becomes law it will be a disaster."
Carter asked Congress in April 1977 to
join him in declaring "the moral
equivalent of war" on the energy crisis
by approving a package designed to
conserve scarce fuels by making them
more expensive and taxing their inef-
ficient use.
THE HOUSE passed most of what
Carter requested in August 1977..But
until yesterday's vote, that was the last'
congressional victory the Carter'
program enjoyed as the Senate began
systematically dismantling the plan's
major provisions.
Senate passage of the gas-pricing bill
followed an intensive White House lob-'
bying effort. Administration officials
portrayed the plan as crucial to futur
U.S. energy policies and to halting t.
decline of the U.S. dollar.
Supporters said the measure would
allow enough new gas to be found to
reduce oil imports by about 1.5 million
barrels a day by 1985 - going a long
way to meeting the reduction of two
million barrels a day Carter vowed at
last July's economic summit in Bonn.
However, opponents of the -com-
promise - a coalition of liberals who
called it too costly for consumers and
conservatives who complained it
doesn't deregulate quickly enough -
claimed the measure would not have
any appreciable effects on either gas
production or oil imports.
ULTIMATE ROOTS
FALMOUTH, Maine (AP)-After 41
years in the plumbing business,
Richard Waltz figures he's'finally found
the ultimate of roots.
"I've never seen anything quite like
it," he comments about a 32-foot-long,
100-pound mass of tiny, almost hair-like
interwoven root fibers pulled from a
clogged drainge pipe.
Even after the roots were out, the
drainage pipe remained clogged,,and
Waltz and his men kept probing. They
found another 20-foot mass of fibers.
The roots apparently belong to a
willow tree.
"Roots hve almost an intelligence for
locating pipes," Waltz explained..
"They'll grow down to a pipe, then go'.
longitudinally along the pipe until they
finally locate a crack. Finally, a little
spear the size of a hair on your head will
work into the pipe," he said.
