p Archeologi$t$ in Egypt: ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, WED., FEB. 2, 1972 Pag€ 8 Computers 'Picture' Beautiful Nile Queen PHILADELPHIA (AP) Archeologists using a computer to reconstruct Egyptian temples say Nefertiti, one of the most beautiful queens of the Nile, may have been more powerful than her pharaoh. "We know beyond any question that she was far more important than ever realized," says Dr. Ray W. Smith, one of the University of Pennsylvania archeologists who conducted the study. The archeologists claim hundreds of thousands of facts digested by the computer recreated a visual picture of six lost years—from 1367 to 1361B.C— that no one knew existed. "It's only a flash in a pan in the life of people," said Smith, director of the federally financed project that began in 1965 and now is winding down at a cost of $600,000. "But it depicts a time of enormous, powerful and startling activity." Smith said the study provided evidence of Egypt's first one- god religion and its rituals, and revealed "one of the greatest concentrations of building that ever took place in such a short period of time in human history." Detailed examination of more than 35,000 decorated stone blocks from ancient temples reportedly show Nefertiti may have been more powerful—religiously, anyway—than King Ak- henaten. The history books credit Ak- henaten with probably starting the world's first major cultural revolution. His 17-year reign influenced dramatic changes in art, literature, government and social practices, and he was the first to be called pharaoh. He is also said to have developed a religion that concentrated on one god, the sun's disc, possibly the first attempt at monotheism after the Jews. "Usually an Egyptian king considered himself an earthly embodiment of his personal dlety," Smith said. "We now believe that Nefertiti's status was in the same category." The temple wall scenes the computer helped rebuild photographically involved mammoth detective work: Finding and photographing the l-by-2 foot decorated stone blocks scattered in museums and antiquity storehouses around the world. Smith said the 35,000 stones comprise about 15 per cent of the temple construction in Karnak. "We've been able to match well over 1,000 scenes," Smith said. "It has revealed colorful wall decorations, and buildings of startling size. "We discovered that this king didn't build only one temple, he built at least three, in addition to other public buildings. "And instead of it being only his temple, two may have been temples of Nefertiti which gives her importance in the period which no one ever suspected."

Not so unusual. Unless you consider that George is an immobile^ mass of chicken wire,'paper mache and yarn. George is a science project created through the labor and imagination of 23 Dolliver fifth grade students. He is molded of chicken wire into the shape of a man, with paper mache making up his vital organs and yards and yards of blue and red yarn tracing his circulatory system. Addressing me, he began, "Come along with me on a trip through my body." George spoke with the help of Tim Hendrickson's voice as narrator on a tape recorder. Information used by George was compiled by Susan Olney and Becky Pier son from reports handed in by the students. Mrs. Ray Mason, the teacher, assigned two students to work together making an assigned organ from paper mache. Both had to work together on a report of the subjectassigned, getting their information from three separate . reference sources. Mrs. Mason admitted the time allotted for the completion of the project had stretched well over two weeks, and she had feared tthat possiblx t^sphil^jR might,, lose interest. But not so; Everyone worked with great enthusiam and did his share of cleaning chores, much to the complete surprise and amazement of the school janitor, Carl Griese. Mrs. Mason related that the hardest job was to assemble George, and while doing this a near catastrophe occurred. While fitting the large intestine into its correct position she had to bend it to make it fit. By doing this she broke it in two places, much to the dismay of the students. Quickly with glue, tape, staples and yarn it was put back together good as new, almost. All concerned admit that George was a fun and rewarding project. The fifth grade students from Dolliver Elementary school have learned a lot about the main vital organs in their bodies with George's help and are happy to have made his acquaintance. If you had met George you would have noticed that he is even sporting a pair of eyes, which while not considered a vital organ, were added because one little boy insisted that George needed to see as well as talk,' Drug Addicts Choose to Ship Out, Not ShoOt Up Enmeshed. TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Teenage drug addicts here are being offered a chance to ship out instead of shoot up. Delinquents and school dropouts also are eligible for a new program designed to mold troubled youths into mariners. They are taught the ins and outs of sailing, including how to rig lines, chart waters, navigate and probe ocean depths. Financed by federal and state funds and private donations, the program is aimed at 14-to 18-year-olds and is based on the age-old lure of the sea. Called the Seafaring Institute for Wayward Youths, the nonprofit operation will take boys sent by the courts, halfway houses, and parents. It's expected to be in operation within a month, at a cost of $5,000 to $6,000 per boy. To be eligible, boys must have a 6th grade reading ability, normal intelligence and an interest in the water. "We want to get to the reamers, the ones with no values and poor attitudes, but it won't be a cure-all for all kids," said Robert Rosof, who operates the Florida Ocean Science Institute at Deerfield Park. The Tampa operation' is modeled after the project in Deerfield Beach, Fla., and Rosof is helping get it seaworthy. The program initially will have about 25 youths. In Rosof s nine-month course at Deerfield Park, youths commute daily, spend mornings in classroom workshops and afternoons aboard a renovated ship using what they learn. They also scuba dive, fish, test water samples and occasionally embark on overnight camping trips to nearby islands. "There's no way in nine months we can teach youngsters everything," said Rosof. "But we can teach them the rudiments to branch out into welding, mechanics, ship repair, plumbing, carpentry, and small craft handling." In three years, he said, 200 youths have come aboard the Deerfield Park program. Two dropped out, 20 per cent went back to school, 5 per cent went to work in marinas and others sought construction work or went into military service. "Less than 10 per cent are back in jail," he said, comparing that with U.S. Justice Department figures that show 72 per cent of juvenile delinquents released across the nation in 1963 were back in prison in five years.

NORTH • ESTHERVILLE - SOUTH OF EMMET COUNTY STATE BANK The Hoover just wont take no for an answer. "I just don't have time to do my own wash." Th is Hoover washes the average load in just 4 minutes or less. That's less time than it takes to get the car out for a trip to the coin-op laun dry. Less time than it takes for the commercial laundry to make out the sales slip "It doesn't look like it can get clothes clean." Looks can be deceiving. In those scant 240 seconds, the Hoover gets clothes cleaner than many automatics do after a full wash cycle of ten to fifteen minutes. "I don't mind washing, but how do I get the clothes dry?" The Hoover spin cycle extracts the water and detergent at 2000 rpm. Three times as fast as most automatics. Some clothes come dry enough to iron. "It's so complicated. You have to wash a load, then dry it, then wash another load." Not with a Hoover. It dries a load and washes a load at the same time. Cuts down washday to wash-hour proportions. "It costs a fortune to buy soap and water for a washer." You can save up to 100 gallons of water over an automatic during an average 3-load washing. Use less detergent too, with Hoover's efficient washing action and handy "suds-saver". "I don't have any room for a washer." The Hoover measures less than 30" 17": about the size of a utility table. Stores in the kitchen or bathroom; rolls to the sink for use with just fingertip effort. 'I don't have the money for installation." There's no installation, no expensive plumbing. Just hook it to the faucet and it's ready to go. "I just hate stained-up wash tubs." This one won't stain. It's made of stainless steel. And the spin basket is made of aluminum. No staining on clothes there, either. 'It's not the price, it's the repair bills that kill you." There's a nylon impeller in the pump. So there's no metal to corrode. The action is belt-driven. No gears to go bad. And if the belt wears out, even a fumble- fingers can replace it. No serviceman needed. "The motors always wear out before the washers do." The Hoover has two motors. One for washing, one for drying, so each carries half the load. Both are built to carry heavier loads than they'll have to take so they last longer. "What would someone like me do with a washing machine?" That's what they all say. But the Hoover has been bought by single girls, mothers of ten, retired couple's, farm families, even people who live in apartments and mobile homes. "But I already have an automatic washer." Most people buy the Hoover as their only washer. But more and more families are buying it as their second washer. (If the two car family makes sense, why not the two washer family.) And for good reason, it washes so much faster, cleaner, better, and cheaper than the automatics that it makes a lot more sense. Then, too-, you can keep it on the first or second floor so there's no more running to the basement. Rent This WASHER 9 DAY Less Than the Cost of a Pak of Cigarettes
