Longer DST Eved WASHINGTON (AP) -The Department of Transportation, saying Daylight Saving Time probably reduced electrical use by as much as 1 per cent this past winter, recommends that the nation remain on daylight time for eight months out of the year. The department suggested in a report to Congress on Friday that standard time be observed only in the four-month period extending from the last Sunday in October to the last Sunday in February. It said the modified Daylight Saving Time program would better let the'depart- ment determine just how much energy the program would save. Proponents of daylight time had estimated a switch to year-round daylight time would save anywhere from 1 to 3 per cent of the nation's energy usage. They pointed to an Edison Electric Institute study that showed daylight time saved an estimated 700,000 tons of coal annually during World War II. The department said it could not determine just how much energy had been saved because other changes occurring during the energy shortage, notably a reduction in driving, limited fuel availability, speed limit reductions and Sunday closing, masked the effects of daylight time. However, it estimated year round daylight time "resulted in an electrical energy savings of .75 to 1 per cent this past winter." The primary fuel saved was coal, it said. THE DEPARTMENT noted that daylight time may have helped increase gasoline use in some states after gasoline supplies became plentiful again in March and April. It said this occurred because people used the additional hour of daylight to take trips they would not have taken if the nation had been on standard time.

Caries When life becomes theater of the absurd, why not turn theater into life, reasons David Bowie. His Civic Center . concert Friday was a major ' production reflecting the rock star's mad life. , Obsessed with time, with changes, with growing old, with life, love and identity, he'' sang about himself and his generation. Bowie began in the theater and this production, staged by Jules Fisher, returns him to it. as the star of a traveling show called "The Year of the Dia-'' mond Dogs." * * * THE STAGE was decorated ' to resemble a city street after · some future holocaust when "fleas the size of rats suck on ' rats the size of cats and 10,000 " peoploids split into small ; tribes coveting the highest of'.' the sterile skyscrapers -- like packs of dogs assaulting the glass fronts of Love Me Avenue . . ." L i g h t stands and speakers were concealed be-' hind tall skyscrapers and a' ' large phallic-shaped rock;' resting against a building · ) housed a mechanical chair'.' used in one of Bowie's num-. bers. Friday's presentation was' ' uniformly excellent. Some 1 · . songs stand out, however, be-;; i! cause of their special produc; 1 ; tion. ' ' : "Space Oddity," for example, made use of the flying chair. Bowie began the song high in the building as if in his r rocket ready for takeoff. Then' as he sang of Major Tom' blasting into orbit, encounter-^' ing trouble and eventually being lost, "floating in my tirT can," Bowie floated out ac- ; ross the stage, projected over v the first rows of the audience. ; It was quite effective. Bowie sang another song 1 atop a moving tank of mirrors before disappearing into the-,; glass case only to reappear ·', again when the Dogs (Warren""' Peace and Gui Andrisano,)- av tore apart the cage and a giant °* hand covered with flashing- 1 "* lights lowered to reveal him., inside. .-- : 5-£ In his best Marlerie Dietricn ; * Blue Angel voice, he pron-; ounced, "Time -- He's waiting in the wings/He speaks of;, senseless things/His script-is '" you and me, boy./Time -- He'/ flexes like a whore/Fails^." wanking to the floor/His trick',?; is me and you, boy." It was;. superb. , ·'.?- "Panic in Detroit" was;;,; produced with Bowie as prize-^ fighter, red boxing gloves:! matching his hair, and com-^. plete with a trainer who^' fanned him with a towel and^, wiped his forehead. -.1- ^ * * * · . ·.!'" OTHER STANDOUTS in anf excellent show were.:!"Changes," which Bowie*'" pronounces "Ch-ch-ch-c'h-Jo anges," to accent the speeji::;! and uncertainty of time;; "Rock'n'Roll Suicide," which;' Bowie performed on July "3,".^; 1973 as his last song when he '··'··. "retired," "The Width of a r, Circle." "Big Brother" and "Watch That Man." - .V;". "Rock'n'Roll With Me," the- show closer, was very good: and was followed rather quickly by "Drive-in Saturday" as encore. With Bowie; on acoustic guitar, "Drive-in','was perfect, down to the box of popcorn shared by the Dogs. Bowie's band was superb;--' it is essentially the same used- on the album "Diamond Dogs" -- with tapes for aug- c mentation. The audience was wildly ap-!': preciative but was somewhat · disappointing in appearance. The big glitter guys were not out for main man Bowie: There were only small touch} es -- a small rhinestone choker, a simple silver locket. Ovr er-all it was the ordinary rock crowd who, for once, was content to sit and listen and marvel at the weird genius on stage. It was a real event.
