A crane with a 100-foot arm swings a 3,600-pound component of Control Data Corporation's 6600 computing system towards window of Warren Weaver hall, the new home of New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. The system was delivered to the Institute April 6. Because of the weakness of the terrain surrounding the building and the weight of the four components, the crane had to be used. The CDC 6600 will be employed by two of the Institute's six divisions, its AEC Computing and Applied Mathematics Center and its University Computing center. -ak-"
