News in Brief: Seattle, "BARC" Debut. Security wraps are taken off the BARC - mammoth new amphibious vehicle. This sixty ton behemoth can haul an 100-ton load to a beach-head. Equally at home on land and sea, this behemoth is a massive addition to America's combat arsenal. BARC rolls out of water into land, unloads a tank. Military men watch from small bleachers. Man in uniform holds up a regular-sized tire to show the contrast in size versus the huge tire (taller than the man) of the BARC. Tilt down from moving BARC to tire tracks in the sand.
