    Background: Art students in some of the University of California's various branches have come up with some novel and fascinating ideas as they work towards their higher degrees in the subject.

    At the Los Angeles branch of the University, some campus artists have formed sculptures from wool, each item being woven by teams of their creators.

    Another student has created what he calls a "television machine". A feature of the revolving work is that it shows stills from old films of Ronald Reagan--now Governor of California.

    A girl student--also working for her higher art degree-tempted the television lighting crews with her variety of paintings of food.

    The most spectacular of all the art efforts was by Wolfgang Stoerchle. A student at the University's. Santa Barbara campus, his specialty is the creation of debris. The smashing of plaster against walls results in his finished product in noisy and exciting fashion. People often watch as the young artist sets about his wok amid the clatter of falling plaster.

    According to one reporter, Stoerchle's work is either a comment on violence n society or simply an example of campus life today, but at least it moves. The reporter found it the most exciting art show he had ever covered with something in it for everyone.
