Oops, the article is in Nov, 1973 Scientific American...

The instrument described is only two feet, center to cener, and is 
described as being used to monitor earth tilt due to a volcano.

It's also used as as siesmometer, and is said to be sensitive enough
to monitor the earth tide.

The electronics are a bit dated, but would work as described.
