K r Art Fair unfolds as
. workers toil under
torrid sun, humidity
By LORI CARRUTHERS
A short stroll through the streets of Ann Arbor one day before
the Ann Arbor art fair can give the casual observer an inkling
of the amount of preparation that goes on before the fair begins.
As one observer put it, "There is a certain amount of low-key
excitement in the air. The energy level is building as tables are
being set up and trucks are making their deliveries."
IN YESTERDAY's warm afternoon sun workmen busily pre-
pared the streets, sidewalks and booths for today's merchants.
Along East University young men wearing red T-shirts that read
"Ann Arbor Art Fair" nosily hammered weathered wood slats to
the framework for the booths.
Besides artist's booths, a pointcd white canopy structure has
appeared on East University between the Physics and Astronomy
Building and West Engineering Building. The canopy, a project
of architecture and design students, is making its second appear-
ance this year after a brief stint in April.
By late'afternoon, as thc mercury and humidity continued to
rise, those setting up the booths began to take comfort in the
shade of a tree. One family, the Fitzharrises and their daughter
>1 aLiz set up their lawn chairs in the shade of a nearby building.
"IT COULD have been any other weather except 95 to 100
degrees today," Mr. Fitzharris said.
, Temperatures for today's fair are expected to be blistering,
N Ywith a high in the upper 90's.
Along South University, fences and roping were set up by
workers to protect the green lawns. Four foot high snow fences
and roped off areas with signs declaring "No displays - Space
iC t Use Prohibited" seem ample measures of protection.

tive officer of Alyeska Pipeline
Service Co., said .the accident at
5:55 p.m. EDT knocked a small

"THIS IS not something that
is going to keep us down more
than a few hours," Patton said.
It was the second shutdown of
the line this month.
Patton said he was not sure
how much oil leaked at the site.
An Interior Department spokes-
man in Washington said how-
ever the spill was believed to
be "upwards of 200 barrels,"
which would be more than 11,000

seeding at the site, 23 miles

dent in less than a month involv-
ing a truck running into the

at Pump Station No. 10, where
the flow of oil has not reached.
Earlier yesterday, an oil well
pumping station at Prudhoe Bay
was shut down after a leak of
highly combustible crude oil was
reported. Industry officials had
said that incident would not re-
quire shutting down the pipeline.
An Atlantic Richfield spokes-
man said the leak triggered a
fire prevention system, dump-
ing an inert gas into the build-
ing to prevent a fire or explo-
sion. The station was shut down

inally the oil had been moving
about 1.4 miles per hour.
