Dr. Lloyd Breslau of the

from preliminary examination
of a sonar scan taken in the

"There is a rough area, as'

natural lake-floor roughness or
can be spilled cargo," said
Breslau.

when it is completed.

LANSING (UPI)-Gov. Wil-
liam Milliken has signed into
law legislation outlawing the,
pirating and resale of tapes and'
records.
The measure, signed yester-
day, specifies that sound re-
cordings may not be transferred
with the intent to sell them with-,
out the consent of the owner of
the original recording. Violation
is a misdemeanor and carries a
penalty of up to one year in
prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
THE LAW also makes it a,

misdemeanor to sell, possess or
offer for sale a pirated record-
ing. The penalty wouldbe a
fine of up to $100 for each of-
fense.
The manufacture and sale pro-
visions only apply to recordings
made before Feb. 1S, 1972. After
that date, they are covered by
federal copyright law.
The proposal enacted yester-
day was an ammended version
of one vetoed by Milliken last
year and will go into effect next
April 1.

The New Phase Linear Speakers
by: BANG & OLUFSEN

New! The former leader of The Amboy
Dukes steps out on his own with this
fren ied collection of high energy rock-
ers. His mastering of the electric guitar
is unquestioned, the power in these
songs unparalleled, and the excitement
in his playing unrivaled. Get into Ted
Nugent, fast!

Now, after years of research, Bang & Olufsen has created a speaker system that
provides the missing link in speaker engineering by virtually eliminating aud-
ible phase distortion.
