ering as possible running

an interview in Phoenix that
Connally, a former Texas gov-

said. "The President says he

WASHINGTON l)P - Govern-
ment officials are hoping a new
technical device can test weld-
ing from inside the trans-Alaska
oil nipeline and avoid the need
to dig up and X-ray some 18,000
X-rays of the buried welded
segments of pipe could delay
completion of t h e pipeline,
scheduled to begin pumping
some 1.2 million barrels of oil
daily in mid-1977 to Alaska's
southern coast.
An Interior Department
source said yesterday the de-
partment would consider sub-
stituting "ac o u s t i c atI ho-
lography," a still-experimental
technique for the X-rays.
Late last year, the Alyeska
Pipeline Service Co. reported
that 3,955 out of the 31,423 welds
completed in 1975 were ques-
tionable-either flawed or, more
frequently, lacking the verifia-
ble X-rays which the Interior
Department needs to approve
the pipeline.
Now, however, the privale
auditing him of Arthur Andei-
sen and Co., hired to review
Alyeska's audit of the X-rays
for the Interior Department, has
reported that it cannot tell

whether any of the 31,423 welds
were properly X-rayed and ver-
ified or, if so, which X-rays
belong to which welds.
"There can be no assurance
that radiograph X-rays for all
physical welds made in 1975
were accounted for during the
Alyeska audit," said a draft re-
port from the Andersen firm,
obtained by Ith e Associated
"This'is because there was no
p o s it i v e accountability over
weld number assignment or
preparation of quality control
documentation in 1975," it said,
An I n t e r i o r Department
source said laboratory tests of
the new acoustical holography
technique seemed to work, and
the next step will be to take the
device to Alaska and test it on
welded pipeline in an assembly
yard of Alyeska, the group o
seven oil companie uildins4
the 80-mile line from uil fielis
in the Arctic.
If that testing show lthat
"acoustical holography" can d
the saise job as X-rays, this
source said, it would be tested
next in actual segments of in
stalled pipeline.

The music, far from being
one of my favorites from the
baroque era, is repetitive to the
point of being tiring, as if the
composer were trying to fill out
as much time with as little
material as possible. Yet, the
performance pleased me. Crisp
string sound and a finely pro-
portioned reading contributed
to this impression.
RODRIGO'S Concertata Sere-
nata, featuring harpist Nicanor
Zabaleta, follewed. As all those
who are familiar with the com-
poser's Concierto de Aranjuez
know, there is nothing terribly
profound or modern about Rod-
rigo's music. But that is not to
say that his compositions are
somehow weak. His creative
use of orchestral timbre spiced
with modern devices (like an
occasional bit of bi-tonality-the
simultaneous sounding of two
different keys) never pains or
bores but entertains instead.
The delightful Concertata, un-
douhtaly written in a spirit of
great fun, did not fail to warm
the hearts of its audience on a
rather cool Thursday night.
Zabaleta, a true master of
his instrument, is a delight to
observe. Each phrase is shaped
with the care of a Swiss watch-

maker. However, while techui
ally perfect, he is no mere tech-
nician. The sound which issues
from his instrument carrie-
with it great feeling and dept
of expression. His is the kind i
harp playing which must sore
go on in heaven.
Manuel de Falla's music -i
the ballet El Amor Brujo, comi
posed in 1915, was presented af
ter intermission. The story i-
the ballet tells of a young mo
man who is haunted by the
ghost of her former lover, and
the accompanying music range-
in mood from tender yearnng
to violent passion. Sadly, ti
DSO's performance failedst
convey this. The orche tr
playing was certainly gct--
enough, but the performan
was dull and lifeless.
Overall, my impression In
the orchestra h a s inprove
greatly since I heard it last
Technically the orchestra ;-
near perfect. But this is only the
first step, and there is still a
long way to go. Because the
members of the orchestra tend
to ignore their conductor's ii
structions, they play like a
hundred virtuosos going their
own way, rather than asone
finely tuned instrument.
