Aglow at dawn, Brasilia breaks the plains 600 miles northwest of Rio. Congres sional offices occupy twin towers that soar 28 stories. Senators meet beneath the dome, Deputies within the saucer-shaped structure at extreme right. Graceful lamps line the street. Concrete crown 108 feet high forms the framework for Brasilia's cathedral. Glass walls will enclose the doorless edifice; parishion ers will enter through a tunnel. Workmen's con struction lights glow in the 340 unfinished business center.
