If you chanced to pass by artist Charles Ginnever's "Daedalus"
sculpture shortly after it was installed on the Art Museum lawn last
week, you may have seen another type of artistic statement - a price
tag plaed by Lionel Biron on the giant metal edifice. "The price tag is
a poetic metaphor," said Biron, "and should not be taken at face value
alone." In a news release handed out on the spot Biron informed the
public that the $500,000 price tag - a figure arrived at partially by
adding labor and material costs - was not a criticism of the unusual
sculpture. "What shocks most people in my assertion is not the rela-
tive aesthetic worth of the two works of art," Biron said, referring to
"Daedalus" and the price tag, "but the genuine challenge it presents
to economic assumptions upon which our society rests. In other words,
if I were given 'a half million dollars for the price tag and the sculptor
only received 10 per cent of this amount, this would seriously upset
generally held beliefs as to what constitutes the apparently logical
distribution of moneyin our society." Hmmm...

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Carter
administration opened a new round of
Middle East diplomacy yesterday with
Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan
and said it would be willing to talk with
the Palestine Liberation Organization
(PLO) if the group accepts United Na-
tions resolutions recognizing Israel.
Dayan carried to President Carter
and Secretary of State Cyrus Vance
proposals for a settlement that would
return some territories to the Arab
countries but maintain Israel military
control over the west bank of the Jor-

CINCINNATI (AP) - A waitress
working in the Beverly Hills Supper
Club the night a fire killed 164 people
told a congressional hearing yesterday
that fire doors at the supper club rour
tinely were kept locked. Janetta John-
son, who was injured trying to get out of
the overcrowded Cabaret Room, also
said aisles leading to the room's single
exit were blocked by tables and chairs.
"It was like trying to get an egg into a
Coke bottle," she said of the jam up at
"I just knew that smoke was going to
kill me. People were screaming and
pushing trying to get through that sin-
gle exit door."
JOHNSON SAID she had seen the fire
doors unlocked "perhaps eight times"
in the;two years she worked there. She
testified she saw an employe unlock
back fire doors the night of the May 28
She was one of a series of witnesses
testifying about the fire before the sub-
committee on Consumer Protection and
Finance of the House Committee on In-

regard for the safety of Beverly Hills
He charged that Richard Schilling
and his sons, owners of the club, had en-
gaged in a "conspiracy" with archi-
tects and electrical workers to violate
state building codes.
Carroll, the first to testify yesterday,
told the committee he was going to
place the fire marshal's office "in such
order that there are no more tragedies
