SPECTACLE-a New York/Ann Arbor based group
specializing in weird happenings-has announced its
members are going to Washington D.C. to use art to get
to the bottom of the Watergate scandal. Acording to a
SPECTACLE statement released yesterday, the group
plans to bring a machine called the "Space Litter" to the
White House in an effort to recreate the missing 18
minutes of Watergate tape. The machine, according to
the statement, will "extend an antenna into the thick
White House atmosphere and extract from it those
missing 18 minutes! The recreated tape will be played
for all to hear." We can hardly wait.

Train robber nabbed
One of the bandits in Britain's $7 million Great Train
Robbery was arrested in Rio's fashionable Copacabana
section, police said yesterday. The man was identified
as Ronald Biggs, 44. British reporters said he was living
with a 22-year-old Brazilian woman. Biggs reportedly
commented after the arrest, "I've longed for the green
fields of England-I'm glad the run is over." Biggs was
sentenced to 30 years in prison in 1964 for master-
minding the Aug. 1963 train robbery. He escaped from
a British prison in 1965. Only about $1 million of the
$7 million loot was recovered.
Bolivian miners strike
Bolivian miners yesterday posed a new threat to the
government by deciding on a 48-hour strike in solidarity
with farmworkers whose revolt was put down by troops
this week, killing nine farmhands. According to radio
reports reaching La Paz from southern Bolivia, some
4,000 tin miners resolved to walk out of the nation's two
most important mines. The strike call was made at a
mass meeting held in defiance of a government-imposed
state of martial law. During the farmworkers revolt,
troops were under order from right-wing President Hugo
Banzer to act ruthlessly to crush what Banzer has called
an international communist conspiracy.
MIT to launch yo-yo
Students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
have built "the world's largest yo-yo," and what's more,
they plan to drop it tomorrow from the roof of a 21-
story building and keep it going with a giant mechanical
"finger." The monstrous yo-yo, created by 'Assistant
Professor of Mechanical Engineering James Williams
and 10 students, is made of two 26-inch bicycle wheel
rims connected by a steel shaft. The string is a heavy-
duty braided nylon cord. To keep the yo-yo going,
Williams and his students concocted a nine foot aluminum
beam, or finger, run by a 1.5 horse power motor. "Next
year we're thinking of making a giant frisbee," Williams

Groundhogs disagree
Groundhog weather forecasters yesterday came out
with mixed predictions for the next six weeks. Punxu-
tawney Phil, ground forecaster for Punxsutawney, Pa.,
barely cast a shadow when he emerged from his burrow.
Som Light, longtime president of the Punxsutawney
Groundhog Club, was initially mystified by Phil's move,
but recovered his aplomb to interpret the wan shadow
as meaning six more weeks of mild winter weather.
In a conflicting report, Jimmy, the "official" weather
groundhog of Sun Prairie, Wis., climbed from his burrow
through new-fallen snow yesterday and definitely saw
no rays of sun. Thus, he forecast an early spring-at
least for the Wisconsin prairie.

More wom en urged
to study architecture
Since women share half the environment, it is "critical" that they
are represented in its design, according to Architecture Professor
Labelle Prussin at an informational meeting for women interested in
Directed at women not currently in architecture, the meeting not
only answered questions but stressed the importance of increasing the
number of women in the "historically male" field.
"Hopefully, with more women in the field, the discrimination will
decrease said fifth year architecture student June Budden.

Despite local ill feeling over ticket hassles, Crisler
Arena gleamed last night with the lit matches 'of
13,600 Dylan fans as they exchanged a new under-
standing with the boy from Hibbing, Minn.
Accompanied by a gloriously tight Band, Bob
Dylan lived up to all expectations as he delivered
his classic material and one especially meaningful
cut, "Forever Young," from his new album, Planet
With his opening and closing selection for the
concert, "You'll Go Your Way, I'll Go Mine," Dylan
Daily Review
seemed to tell his audience what he has been com-
municating during his entire 21-city tour: He has
never been able to deal with the "prophet" image
thrown upon him-and now he just wants to make
music, not lead a political movement.
YET DYLAN'S attitude was one of affection for
his listeners. With "Forever Young" near the con-
cert's end, he urged his fans to carry on by them-
selves, not to turn cynical. And the song's lovely
melody appeared to evoke Dylan's desired audience
response: respect, not adulation.
Especially memorable among Dylan's numbers

with the Band were "All Along the Watchtower,"
"Like a Rolling Stone," and "Just Like Tom
Thumb's Blues" in which the Band offered flour-
ishes to what may have otherwise been a plodding
As Dylan wandered onto the stage with his acus-
tic guitar, cheers arose in anticipation of a more
"folky" set.
Sure enough Dylan's voice even seemed to hark
back to his earlier acoustic days-a bit more nasal
and rough--when he started off with "The Times
Are A'Changin'." "Don't Think Twice" continued
in the same vocal vein with a harmonica break
which garnered scattered applause.
In spite of the audience's enthusiasm over
Dylan's solo numbers, the crowd welcomed the
Band's solo sets. Musical precision and, surprising-
ly, even some fine harmonies marked their per-
formance of such tunes as "The Night They Drove
Old Dixie Down," "I Shall Be Released," and "The
The Band performed nothing from their most
recent album, Moondog Matinee, concentrating in-
stead on the audience's favorites from the past. As
back-up for the word-oriented Dylan, the Band
rounded out the concert as a total, inspiring
musical experience.


Govt. pla ns
WASHINGTON (/P) - The Justice
Department yesterdaytreleased de-
tails of a proposal to safeguard
the privacy of arrest information
in government computers.
Legislation sponsored by Attor-
ney General William Saxbe would
allow government agencies access
to computer information only when
laws or executive orders specifical
ly provide for it. The door was left
open for Congress to add further
AT THE SAME time, Sen. Sam
Ervin (D-N.C.) announced he would
introduce an even stricter bill in
the Senate. Ervin heads the Sen-
ate judiciary subcommittee on con-
stitutional rights.

CURRENTLY 28 of 325 four-year
architecture students at U-M are
women. One out of 34 students in
the University's doctorate program
in architecture are women.
Prussin attributed this to "co-
vertly discouraging" counseling,
discriminitive employment in the
field, and lack of confidence.
"Historically, architecture has
always been seen as a man's field.
Women have no confidence in their
capabilities in this area," Prussin
"Though interested in architec-
ture, a woman will be an interior
designer, much as a woman in-
terested in medicine will be a
nurse instead of a doctor," a stu-
dent present added.
Students stressed the flexibility
of the architecture program.
Though the first two years demand
required courses, "the last two
years offer opportunity to combine
architecture with other disciplines,
such as sociology, psychology or
business," explained recent grad-
uate Lorraine King. "But, you
should structure your program with
the idea of what you want to do
