Plan to aid Chrysler

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - A House subcom-
mittee yesterday approved the Carter
administration's $1.5 billion loan
guarantee plan to aid the financially
distressed Chrysler Corp.
The vote in the House .Banking Com-
mittee's economic stabilization sub-
cemmittee was 12-6. The bill now goes
to the full Banking Committee, which
h4s set aside next Wednesday and
Thursday to act on it.
-REP. JAMES J. Blanchard (D-
AMich.), the principal House sponsor of
aid to Chrysler, predicted quick

passage by the full committee.
Rep. Stanley N. Lundine (D-N.Y.),
said he will offer an amendment in the
parent committee to set aside $250
million of the guaranteed loan to buy
stock for Chrysler employees.
The subcommittee was told earlier by
Sen. Russell B. Long (D-La.), that the
Senate probably would not accept the
bill )vithout an employee stock owner-
ship plan. The Senate Banking Commit-
tee will begin hearings on the ad-
ministration proposal on Wednesday.

stage shows, orchestras, and pipe
organs were used in the 1920s to accom-
pgny movies, which in those days, were
silent. With the advent of technology,
"talkies" replaced organists and stage
MIany movie houses that had the
familities to perform stage shows un-
derwent reconstruction because of
enormous maintenance costs. Today,
R1dio City Music Hall in New York is
the only movie house in the world that is
stIll used for stage shows.
THE MICHIGAN Theatre is one of
the few in the world that has stage show
facilities. It is also one of the three
rpovie houses in the world that has a
raire and;valuable Barton pipe organ in
rint condition. The organ fell to disuse
in the 30s, 40s and 50s, and then it sat
untouched for more than 20 years. In
1972, it was restored and now it can be
heard on Friday and Saturday

revamp Mich. Theatre

Until August 4th of this year, the
theater was being used solely for first-
run, shows. The calendar for "revival
cinema" through January, 1980, in-
cludes "An American in Paris," "North
by Northwest," "Meet Me in St. Louis,"
and "West Side Story." Every show will
be preceded by a pipe organ overture.
The corporation also plans to use the
theater for presentations similar to
ones held at the Power Center, such as
lectures, concerts, films, plays,
professional production companies,
and perhaps even some Art Fair per-
formances next summer.
Not only is the theater dead as a
vaudeville palace now, but a year agq
the theater almost lost its life com-
THE THEATER'S life was
threatened last April when a lease to
the W.S. Butterfield Inc. theater chain
expired. Butterfield declined to renew
the lease because of the theater's

enormous overhead and operating ex-
penses. When plans were considered to
convert the theater into a mini-
shopping mall, concerned Ann Arbor
citizens appealed to Mayor Belcher to
save the theater. The Michigan Com-
munity Theater Corpomation was for-
med, and received City Council's en-
dorsement to buy the theater for $1.3
Had the vote to save the theater not
passed, there may have been new
stores on Liberty in a few years, and
one less listing in the National
Registrar of Historic Landmarks.

Pilobolus in Detroit

(Continued from Page 5)
from one another. Or maybe-it's just a
humorous observation of children
dressed as "grownups."
"Untitled" first presents two excep-
tionally tall women dressed in long old-
fashioned white dresses. As they walk
about the stage together, their charac-
ters are revealed; one is a bit shy, the
other stubborn. Both "seem aware of
their prettiness and are deciding how to
use it. Soon they lift their skirts and
show their legs - and what personality
these have! The bare legs are sexy,
playful, and mialv.
Two men dressed in tuxedos appear
on the scene and court the ladies who
shortly after give birth. These naked
labies are the men whose legs had
made the woman taller. The women's
mi ovements are slower now, more
deliberate. They launder their skirts
and lean on one another over and over,
4rawing energy and creating more
culptural designs.
v As the women grow older and lean
more on one another, "Untitled"
presents yet another interpretation of
life: Women, men, and children may be
aired more often than not with their
qwn kind. They seem to draw more kin-

ship and strength from their own.
Each dance performed Wednesday
night had a strong individual per-
sonality, and yet the Pilobolus style is
consistent. Innovation, energy, and ex-
pression flow continually. These per-
formers, like their choreography and
accompanying music, are so fantastic
that they create more than dance
movement; Pilobolus has given birth to
a voice, and what with its endless
imagination and energy, it should be
weaving and sculpting stories of life for
a long time to come.
