GRUESOME ADVANCES IN THE WEAPONS OF WAR - War has become automated, computerised, "dehumanised". In Vietnam, for instance, every effort was made to prevent the American soldier from confronting the enemy. Their positions are charted by a variety of sensing devices. They are bugged, bombed and shelled from strongholds many miles away, or from remote aircraft. The Viet Cong have made their own grisly contributions to jungle warfare, using less sophisticated equipment: the result is that the forests of Vietnam provide the most hazardous envoronment on earth. We investigate the modern weaponry of war - from laser bombs to the punji spike - and looks at weapons stockpiled by armies not presently engaged in conflict Four and a half pages

STUDIES IN TWO DEPTHS - With his portfolio of studied photographs, Peter Lavery, 24, from Wakefield, wins The Daily Telegraph Magazine Photography Award of 1972 at The Royal College of Art. He is happiest using one of his three plate cameras, posing his subjects elaborately against carefully chosen backgrounds, and he is fascinated by the circus. "I like just two depths in my pictures - a wall, say, and someone standing in front of it. I like flat areas, and I like plate cameras for the fine detail they give." Overleaf are examples of his work outside the circus, and on page 32, Byron Rogers reports on the 1972 Award 5 pages
