Bedecked in dazzling gowns, and even
flashy scarves, tails or top hats (though
the affair was billed "black tie"), the
high society of Ann Arbor flocked to the
new Power Center for the Performing
Arts Tuesday evening to see a grand
opening and a premiere performance and
watch their friends do likewise.
One pretty belle, staring in the lobby's
reflecting glass windows, marveled at the
glitter of her own image, and meticulous-
ly straightened a hair.
She giggled at the wavy forms of the
milling. crowd behind her. Wavy forms
whose gay laughter and gossip echoed in
the spacious high foyer.

Actors, regents, stockholders, dignitar-
ies all. Craning necks and teasing winks.
Frolicking ushers adding warmth to cold
concrete.
A warm smile dressed in academic
robes draws you nearer the star of The
Great White Hope. A man with sunglass-
es catches your eye, Truman Capote, of
.course.
Eugene Power, the white-haired man be-
hind the picture, donated $3 million for
the center and the town got together
half a million more.
Does anyone still think this is a new
power plant?
