Marceau warms
Powe audience,
A sold-out crowd at the Power Center last .ight
bestowed a standing ovation on Marcel Marceau for his
first of three concerts presented by the University Musi-
cal Society.
Marceau amply demonstrated the four-dimensional
imagination and technical virtuosity that have made .him
a global favorite with audiences of all ages and classes.
His mimes in last night's concert ranged from effectively
simple charades to more abstract and narrative pieces.
THE DISTINCTIVE Marceau mime style was the uni-
fying theme of the evening. In The Public Garden, he
portrays typical denizens of a public park as diverse as
knitting granny, a ballroom man, a hop-scotcher, a dog-
walker, a child with a scooter, lovebirds and an old man
with a cane. One could almost smell spring flowers.
A more abstract contrasting performance was The
Dress . . . Memories of a Past Love. Marceau had an
unexpected partner whose name did not appear on the
program: a bat, disturbed by the heat and light of a
fresnel lamp, made several graceful swoops cross the
The style pantomime Contrasts explored the interfaces
of human relationships to carnival tunes and martial
music. Marceau portrayed clown and firing squad target,
drummer and carney mark in rapid-fire alteration.
In BIP at the Ballroom, Marceau presented his fam-
ous flower-sniffing alter-ego who waltzed with various
odd-sized partners, brawled over a girl, and got drunk and
bounced into the street.
SEVERAL MIMES spotlighted Marceau's impeccable
technique. The Pickpocket's Nightgnare employed Mar-
ceau and four disembodied hands which spanned the
stage in mind-tickling optical illusions. In BIP Plays
David and Goliath, he ducked behind a black flat to
accomplish his Superman-style appearance changes.
Marceau credits the silent screen comedians, espe-
cially Charlie Chaplin, for being his inspiring geniuses. In
BIP Travels by Train, he turned out a thoroughly Chap-
linesque version of the joys of coping with gravity and
bodily fluids intransit.
The high point of the evening was Marceau's classic
The Maskmaker, a masterful 'comment on comedy and
tragedy and a stylistic triumph.

that last year it destroyed lists

ed the lists. However, the offi-
cial, who declined to be identi-
fied, said late Thursday night
that the Justice Department has
been given to believe that the
CIA's counterintelligence divi-
sion maintained its own sepa-
rate list of domestic dissidents.
ACCORDING to the adminis-
tration source, the CIA also has
told the Justice Department
that it made no use of the
names of radicals supplied by
the ;department in 1970 as po-
tential targets of surveillance
on' their trips abroad. The
source said CIA told the de-
partment it had destroyed the
list in March 1974.
Spokesmen for both CIA and
the Justice Department de-
clined to comment yesterday.
In a related development, the I

Army announced it has found
some intelligence information
on political activities of Ameri-
can civilians in a microfilm li-
brary nearly four years after
records were supposed to have
been purged.
SECRETARY of the Army
Howard Gallaway ordered the
file, located in a counterintel-
ligence analysis and research
office, to be "rescreened on a
priority basis for the purpose
of eliminating all material on
United States civilians not af-
filiated with the Department of'
Defense which is not retainable
under current regulations."
Earlier, James Devine, for-
merly a member of the Ju;tice
Department's civil disturbance
group, said that the names of
9,000 to 10,000 radicals were'
sent to the CIA in 1970. Devine,
now with the department's Law
