Reopening Ut Austin's Tower

Janet Heimlich reports from Austin that the Board of Regents of the University of Texas at Austin will consider reopening the tower that overlooks the campus and the city. The tower was closed to the public in 1974 after four people committed suicide by jumping from the tower's observation deck in the early 1970's.
