Archeelogists have long dis* agreed about the place of manufacture of a 2 -colored pottery made 3,800 years ago iomewhere In the Mediterranean area. Diffmnt theories claim either Palestine, Syria or Cyprus. The problem facing chem- Ists at the Berkeley, Calif., lab, nvhere Barbara and 11 other undergraduates from across the nation worlted, was to identify the pottery as being chemically the same as pottery from a known area. They solved the puzzle by using an analytical technique called teutron activation anal- yais. THE PROCESS determines the chemical make*up of things rangbig from human tissue to pottery. Since each element in the universe gives off gamma radiation at a distinct frequency when activated, scientists can determine the chemical composition of an object by measuring the gamma ray frequencies specimens give off after being bombarded with neutrons in a reactor.

"This was a lengthy process of grinding the pottery into clay, weighing the clay samples and then packing. The end result was a sort of clay pill that fitted into a capsule," she says. "Then the men In the lab would take the capsules to the reactor. After the capsules were exposed to radiation, the men would run from the reactor with the capsules up the hill the lab is on. We wanted to get the specimens in a detector before any of the elements stopped sending off gamma radiation," Barb says. Information from the specimens was fed into a computer for the lengthy analysis process. As a result, when Barb left Berkeley, she stiU didn't know if the experiment was a success. Word finally came this winter that indeed the riddle was solved. The chemical composition of her samples of pottery clay was like that of pottery known to come from Eastern Cyprus.

"We in the Social Democratic Party have no use for primitive "anti" attitudes and especially not for antl-Ameri- canlsm" — West German Chancellor Willy Brandt, April 11, 1973.

Goodyear similarly sent in a stack of 30 letters from customers to back tq) its claim that its "Polyglas tire" was "long lasting;." It also said a commercial for its "Custom Power Cushion Polyglas" tire, which the rrc had challenged, was never ah-ed. It epeculated the FTC had gotten hold of a script which was later killed. Uniroyal was asked to sub- jstantiate an ad which listed "Fastrack," "Laredo," "Fleet Master" and "Tiger Paw" tires and added "Safe tires save lives." The company said the latter phrase was added by a tocal dealer who was trying to "sttneit that new tirei are lafer Hhan worn onet and to prompt consumers to replace worn tires."

The FTC will now review the submissions to determine whether any false advertising cases are warranted.

He advised those with Marxist leanings to find a home elsewhere. The convention of the Social Democratic party then overwhelmingly endorsed the Brandt policies. With the passing of Gen. Charles de Gaulle, the energetic West German chancellor has emerged as Western Europe's most influential statesman, in full-control of the West German Bundestag at home and recognized abroad as a powerful spokesman not only for West Germany but for the whole West European community. Far Reaching Consequences In coming weeks Brandt will be holding with other world leaders a series of meetings with possible far reachuig consequences. The first of these is a round of talks this week (beginning April 16) with Yugoslav President Tito.
