pay for the SST
ONE OF THE arguments heard most frequently from
the opponents of the Super Sonic Transport (SST)
poses the question of why private industry does not
finance the investment entirely on its own and without
help-from the government.
The answer is that no private company has the kind
of financial reserves that such a commitment would re-
quire. Development of two SST prototype planes will run
.about $1.5 billion. This is an amount equal to twice the
net worth of the contracting company.
IT MIGHT SOUND strange for a conservative to be ar-
guing for government assistance. But I remember
reading that when the railroads were pushing west they
did not have sufficient money and to entice them they
were given every other section of land along the way,
which remained in their possession and which constituted
the greatest worth of the railroads in years. The federal
government long has been a partner in the shipping in-
dustry and in other industries where is was impossible for
companies to provide the initial financing.
But as I said earlierwe do live in a changing world.
Progress and the implements of progress; like everything
else, are selling on today's market at, inflated prices. I
might say we have our liberal friends to thank for this
inflation because it resulted from the extravagance and
inefficiency with which they operated the federal govern-
ment for about three and a half decades.
BE THAT AS it may, developments in transportation
modes around the world are moving ahead at a pace
which we cannot afford not to equal. It is sometimes
argued that America does not need an SST. The people
using this are similar to those cynical Americans who in
the early days of this century used to shout "get a horse"
at every motorist they encountered. History shows that
the traveling public has welcomed every new level of speed
and comfort-from the fast, light "surrey with the fringe
on top" to the 747 jet transport which is beginning to fly
the "wide blue yonder" over America today.
Our time-conscious travelers will welcome the in-
creased speeds. They can be expected to demand it of air-
lines once supersonic travel becomes feasible anywhere in
the world. So we can expect the principal world airlines,
including those in the United States, to buy SSTs wher-
ever they can get them in the near future. If only the
British-French Concorde and the Russian TU-144 a r e
available, then the biggest business ever placed by any
transportation industry will go to foreign countries and
not the United States. When you think of the amounts
involved, this consideration becomes a factor in-America's
ailing balance of payments situation, in its employment
picture, in its image as a world leader, as well as in its
By JOE PEHRSON
W ITH THE amplifiers of the
SRC and the upper deck of
the Sheraton Hotel parking struc-
ture Robert Boury created a media
event Sunday night. Boury, a
young electronic composer at this
campus, combined his organiza-
tional efforts with his own elec-
tronic art "Call It Sheep," to offer
one of the best and most thought-
ful events of this type ever to be
seen in Ann Arbor.
Donald Hall was also at 'the
event and much of his poetry, at
least the poems which stretch
verbal 'metaphor to an absolt'te
absurdity ("The Allegator Bride,"
"The Groom, (return) of the Al-
legator Bride"), matched the pro-
gressive language of the media
artists. In form, however, Hall's
lecture was sadly out of date. A
glance at the wall of the Sheraton
Hotel, illuminated 200-feet in the
air by five slide projectors, ac-
companiment for the electronic
works of George Wilson, Robert
Morris, Kincaid, Carpenter, and
Bury, assured anyone that the lec-
ture-audience situation posed by
Hall was slightly behind the times.
The location for this event had
been planned far in advance, and
for good reason. The majesty of
this media statement can be par-
tially attributed to the parking
structure itself. The visual state-
ment, a series of simultaneous
color slides by Reynold Lowe, filled
the gigantic screen which was the
entire outer surface of the hotel
above the parking structure. The
top level of the structure, open to
a clear sky, served as a location
for audience and the effect of the
celestial majesty added to the
grandness of a media-illuminated
THE COMPOSERS were equally
anxious for this presentation. The
loudspeakers and amplification
equipment of .the SRC allowed
them to hear their works at maxi-
mum volume, but, unfortunately,
some sound quality was lost to the
The first electronic work on the
program was Robert Morris's
"On." Due to the shooting at Gall-
up park earlier in the day, the
lights were left on during the non-
visual works and theaudience, as
is typical at outdoor presentations,
was not entirely attentive. "On,"
however, could still be heard over
the audience rumble as could
Morris's fine sense of sound blend.

"Spring Song" followed a read-
ing of poetry by Hall.- Accom-
panying this work was a series of
slides by Reynold Lowe and a
dancer, Linda Ellis, who, in plac-
ing her body between the slide
projectors and the hotel screen,
cast a shadow of her motion on
the slide sequence. The visual ef-
fects were not closely coordinated
with the musical sound. Rather,
Kincaid set a mood of exploration
with his pensive sounds, and
members of the auidience were
free to form their own visual as-
AFTER A SHORT intermission,
George Wilson's "Exigencies" was
presented. Technical difficulties
prevented a good hearing of this
work, and when the problems were
corrected, Carpenter, who was
operating the sound equipment,
did not choose to start the piece
again at the beginning. Wilson's
piece is fantastic and the sounds
could be properly realized with
this sound equipment (when it was
working) The entire piece should
have been played; the haphazard
nature of the presentation rele-
gated the sounds to background
music-the piece is much too in-
tereting for this.
After a reading by Hall of some
current work and some poetry of
Robert Hayden (which was slight-
ly out of plan in the surround-
ings), Robert Boury presented his
own work "Call It Sleep" with
visual accompaniment. This piece
has undergone some recent chang-
es, mostly in variety of sounds and
the addition of operatic "music
concrete." The openness of this
varied statement equalled the open
associations provided by the five
simultaneous slide sequences (Rey-
Some associations were deter-
mined by the two media artists.
Boury, at the end of his piece,
includes a section which is entirely
''music concrete,' recorded sounds.
The sounds were those of a sea-
scape, and the slides at that point
were also of the sea. Associations
were determined, but in a very
open way and the audience was
free to participate and make its
own visual and sound associations.
The open nature of the sound con-
tent equalled the open visual con-
tent to make one of the best' in-
tegrated media performances (and
certainly the greatest scale media
performance) to be shown in this
The final event was Carpenter's
tape piece "Lone Wolf" with visual
accompaniment by Lowe.

W ELCOME TO Goose Lake,
lion dollar playground, site of the
Goose Lake Festival. This show-
piece boasts the longest slide in
the world, with a giant air cush-
ion at the end. There is a 30 acre
scramble course, a mile long sandy
beach, a revolving stage for con-
tinuing music, adequate sanitation
facilities, 2000 acres of camp-
grounds and rolling hills and
trees-all for $15.
Goose Lake also boasts of an
eight foot cyclone fence topped by
six strands of electrified barbed
wire. There will be security patrols
(for gate crashers) - on horse
outside the fence; in jeeps inside-
the fence; and in boats along the
All this, and much more, is
brought to you by your Uncle Russ
Gibb, who also brought the broth-
ers and sisters the Cincinnati Pop
Festival where police watched the
crowd for three days and then
arrested everyone at the close of
According to Webster's New In-
ternational Dictionary of the Eng-
lish Language, a festival is "a time,
of feasting or celebration, a day of
But, the thought of Goose Lake
doesn't bring me much joy. Once
you enter the festival grounds,
you cannot, leave and come back
without buying a whole new ticket.
And many of the advertised enter-
tainers will not even be there.
Savoy Brown and Joe Cocker are"
just two examples.
And where does the money from
Goose Lake go? Right into the
pockets of the promoters-who are
HOWEVER, THERE is an al-
ternative. The Ann Arbor Blues
Festival is this weekend. Although
it does cost $10, there are some
very great differences between the
First, the Blues Festival is non-
profit. It is not planned as a
money-making venture. If, by
some chance there is any profit,
it will go into a fund to help pro-
mote other musical events-hope-
fully free-throughout the year.
It will also ensure that there will
be another Blues Festival this year.
In other words, in case there is
any extra money, it will go right
back to the community.
The money is even paid out at
the Blues Festival. Goose Lake is
paying already wealthy r o c k
groups huge sums for an hour or
two of their time.
The blues musicians, on the con-
trary, really need the money. Some
of them had to have their checks
sent in advance so that they could
pay their bills and get their cars
fixed just to make it here. The
money spent on the Blues Festival
goes into the economy, mostly of
the poor blacks in the South.
"The Blues Festival is a dream
for some of these guys (the per-
formers), not for the prestige but
because they need the bread," said
organizer John Fishel. "These guys
will play two nights a week from
8 until 5 in the morning and only
get $30. And even if they do get
a chance to make a record, they
usually get screwed." W h i t e
groups, like the SRC, can go out
and cut a record for, say,
All in all, the Blues Festival just
has better vibrations. There will
be no police patrolling the fence;
and the fence won't be electrified
barbed wire. People can go come
and go as they wish; there will be
Instead of being run by profit-
eering promoters'like Uncle Russ,
the Blues Festival is being run by
students-entirely. All the work on
it, from traffic control to food
concessions to building the stage,
is being done by people from Can-
terbury House and the University
Activities Center (UAC)-with a
little help from their friends.
Indeed, the sponsors, UAC and
Canterbury House, are risking
their very existence on the Blues
Festival If it doesn't break even
and they lose the money that they
advanced, they will be done for.
Although music should be free,
somehow spending the money on
the Blues Festival doesn't seem so
bad. And the sponsors are trying
to make it as inexpensive as pos-
sible so that the non-rich can af-
ford it. Last year, the price was
$14; this year, it is $10._
Festiv ls sponsored by Uncle
Russ and his kind are easy to re-
member for the bad vibes--like
the mass arrests after Cincinnati.

year's. Blue Festival "the best
festival of the year, if not of the
