Shipwrecks, old motels featured at Texan Cultures

The shipwrecks of the sixteenth century. and road relics of the pre-1960s era. are featured in this month’s exhibits at the University of Texas Institute of Texan Cultures iii San Antonio.
In Texans Hit the Road." on view through March 18 in the lower gallery, photographer Janet B. Ingram documents the proud past and uncertain future of the Texas highway motel. Twenty-six color photos explore the architectural motifs of pre*1960s tourist courts in San Antonio, Austin. Amarillo and El Paso
Some of these quaint hostels, located along older highways in Texas, continue to thrive. But during the expanses of the Interstate Highway system, many were moved to make way for construction, or forced to close after being cut off from the tourist traffic flow. In addition, these small establish!Hents have had to face fierce competition from the giant motel chains.
The result was a situtaion much like the decline of frontier tow rn* tliat got by passed by the railroads.
Janet Ingram’s interest in tourist courts and motels began three years ago, when she was living in San Antonio. “One of my daily routes look me down Austin High
way, which is lined with old motels. The unusual color combinations and styles caught my eye,” she said.
She continued the project after moving to El Paso, where she focused on the motels bordering U.S. 80 and Montana Street. Also concluded in the exhibit are lodgings on U.S. 66 in Amarillo, and I amar and Congress streets in Austin.
"Treasure, People. Ships and Dreams." on view at the Institute through April 30. recounts the story of three Spanish ships which sank off the coast of Padre Island more than four centuries ago.
The Espintu Santo, Santa Maria and San Esteban left Mexico on April 9.1554. laden with passengers and precious cargo, they headed for Havana, where they planned to join another fleet and complete the journey home to Spain
After about 20 days at sea, the ships were caught by a violent spring storm and driven westward, finally running aground rn the treacherous shallows off Padre Island. Many passengers died. and the treasure was lost at sea.
But the story did not end there In many ways, it had just begun.
In June of 1554, a Spanish salvage nussion located unc of the vessels and
retrieved about one-third of tin* silver aboard. In 1967, four hundred years later. an Indiana treasure-hunting firm discovered one of the wrecks and began a highly destructive salvage operation.
Fearing tliat priceless historic and scientific information would be lost, historical organizations throughout Texas launched a campaign which ended in the passage of the Stale Antiquities Code in 1969
In 1972, the newly-established Texas .Antiquities Committee undertook a field survey of the site. The research team found dial one of the ships Iud been destroyed by the Mansfield Cut through Padre Island in 1940 An earlier treasure-hunting expedition had left the Santa Maria with little of scientific value But Die San Esteban (us told historians a lot about the people of 16th century Spain.
In conjunction with the exhibit, Du* videotape “Graveyard of Die Gulf" will be shown al ll a.in .. I p.m. and 3 p in each day. It details the recovery and restoration work done on Die shipw recks

Actor 'screens' manholes
in his spare time
LUS A NGK USS i AP) — Dennis Dugan has a new comedy series oil CBS, but lie seems more excited about the recent one-man show of his silk screen prints in an art gallery.
Dugan, who formerly was Die caped crusader Captain Freedom on NBC’s * Hill Street Blues,” plays a bright and honest young executive surrounded by colleagues who are either terrorstricken, ruthless, double-dealing, or all three. The show is "Empire," about life at the top of a major conglomerate.
He talks about his new show with enthusiasm, but his blue eyes become brighter and lie is more animated w hen he talks about his art work.
"My silk screening is what I call ‘low tech, ” he says Every thing I do is a variation on a theme. It may be six panels, bul it will change. It all has to do with repetition and change. One suggests the emergence of women, a print of a road sign says, Men Working.’ Hie next panel says, Men Were King.’”
He also did life-size panels of prints made from rubbings of manhole covers.
"I took up silk screening six years ago,” he says. "I was in England, where they’re very big on brass rubbings I liked the technique but I didn’t like the results. I was running one day on the streets in L.A. and began noticing the manhole covers aU had different designs. It turns out that manhole covers were a big art form in the 1920s.
"So I thought, why not make rubbings of the covers?”
His sliow at a I ais Angeles art gallery sold 30 prints, which he says covers the cost of operating his
“I love silk screening because it’s so unlike acting,” says Dugan. "When you act your work is always in Die hands of other people In ttus you conceive of something in your mind, and from beginning to end ifs your own project. No one else has a hand in it.”
Dugan lives in a Spamsh-style hillside house with his wife, actress Joyce Van Patten. They met when she came backstage to congratulate him on Ins performance in a play. He says, * We’ve been together ever since and we’ve done three plays together.”
Dugan grew up in Wheaton, 111., and studied acting at the Goodman Theater in Chicago, where his mother had studied earlier He got his start in an Off-Broadway production, The House of Blue Leaves After the run he moved to I ais Angeles and did television guest shots until a role on "The Rockford Files” became the short-lived series * Richie Brockelman, Private Eye.” He also did a series that ran only three episodes called "Father, Oh Father," in which he played a priest.
In "Empire” he plays Ben Christian, the head of the company’s research and development laboratory and newly promoted to vice president.
Patrick Macnee plays the chairman of Die board, an eccentric who believes tliat breeding anxiety among his executives improves their performance.
