After being named one of the Hollywood Unfriendly Ten during the com-
munist witch-hunt of the '50s, Biberman took fellow-persecuted artists on
location in New Mexico to produce this little-known masterpiece. A semi-
documentary re-creation of the actual year-long strike of Mexican-
American zincminers, it used mostly a non-professional cast; the drama
centers on the complex, changing relationship between one of the strikers
and his wife. Features inspiring performances by the women of local 890
of the International Union of Mine and Smelter Workers. (94 min.)

Baker described as "any device which
gathers the sun's energy to heat or
cool," is dependent upon the amount of
solar radiation in the area. The only
previously existing figures'on radiation
are not precise according to Tom Grif-
fin, an SRP research assistant. "They
provide only a ballpark figure on the
radiation in that area."
"THE PROJECT started two years
ago," said Baker, "but we have only
been confident enough with our system
to give out information for the last
Michael Weber, a research assistant,
explained that areas which receive less
solar radiation require larger solar
collectors "because of the variation of
cloudiness and difference in latitude.
Southern states receive more radiation
from being closer to the equator so We
need a bigger solar collector to produce
the same amount of energy."
The radiation levels were important
to have because the data can help to
make a collector more efficient. They
can also be tised to compare the
radiation in different regions and
evaluate their conduciveness to solar
The data on radiation go into a com-
puter which averages radiation levels.
"The output is a floppy disk that holds
two days of readings," said SRP
research associate Dennis Kahlbaum.
"It gives people with collectors a feel
for how much radiation fell on that
day," he said. "They'll know how big a
collector has to be to heat a house."
The SRP at the University hag a
trailer which travels throughout the
state to measure radiation.
THIS ARCHITECT'S model of the underground law library addition at the University of Michigan Law School was
designed by University Prof. and Birmingham, Mich. architect Gunnar Birkerts. The $9.2 million, privately-funded
building will contain 40,000 square feet of immedaitely usable space and an additional 15,000 square feet of "raw"
space to accommodate expansion.
