Elving Presents Paper
To Chemis Congress

LONDON-Prof. Philip J. Elving
the chemistry department has
en invited to present a paper at
.e International Congress of Pure
id Applied Chemistry.
Prof. Elving has reported on
,riations in an electrical method
analyzing chemicals and deter-
ining their properties.,
He has developed his analytical
ethods for 15 years, 11 of them
ent at the University. They have
en used for measuring and de-
rmining means of combination
atoms and molecules in fuel

cells and chemicals in1 the human'
Prof. Elving explained the use
of the "half-wave potential" in
this approach.
The "half-wave potential" is a
measure of the energy required to
oxidize or reduce compounds. Oxi-
dation is the addition of an elec-
tron, reduction is the removal of
an electron.
The "half-wave" is named from
the shape of the curve of the cur-
rent flow of the compounds. It
rises as more electrons, and thus
electric potential, is added. It lev-
els off but does not form a typicalI
wave pattern.
The pH, or acidity, of a solution
varies with the half-wave poten-
Knowing the precise energy re-
.quired to add electrons or to re-
move them from moleclues reveals
much about their properties.
Chemical combination is basically
an electrical process, positively or
negatively-charged ions combin-
ing with each other through elec-
trical attraction.
This method is of great use be-
cause electrical measurements are
the basic way to measure the ad-
dition or removal of an electron
in a compound. Also, it is easily,
applicable to aqueous solutions,
which other methods are not.
Fuels are under heavy study now
because of efforts to increase their
efficiency. Efficiency is a direct re-
sult of per cent electrical energy
related to per cent other products
after burning. The theoretical pos-
sibility that fuel cells could be 100
per cent efficient is encouraging1
many studies.I
Prof. Elving has also been con-
cerned with the study of purines
and pyrimidines, of which DNA,
(dioxyribrunucleic acid) partially
consists. DNA is the chemical of
Prof.' Elving's work has been
mostly on 'reduction rather than
oxidation. Reduction is a simpler
process to study and provides back-;
ground to study oxidation, he said.

Clinic Treats
A small, highly specialized clinic
in the neurology department at
University Hospital is tracking the
progress of 600 patients who suf-
fer one of man's strangest afflic-
Called the "Convulsive Disorder
Clinic," the unit is the focal
point for a triple-pronged study
of the disturbances of conscious-
The patients have "spells,"
"epilepsy," "focal seizures," and
similar disorders. Doctors recog-
nize more than 200 different dis-
eases which produce mild to se-
vere convulsions.
Research currently under, way
includes studies of :
-The effects of anti-convulsant
drugs in controlling seizures and
altering the patient's encephalo-
grams (EEG).
-Changes in blood chemistry
which may trigger convulsions.
-The value of EEG tracings
collected by special naso-pharyn-
geal electrodes which detect ac-
tivity at the base of the brain.
Battery of Tests
Each new patient referred to
the hospital by his family physi-
cian takes a battery of tests which
attempt to pin-point the area of
the brain which is affected and
to identify any metabolic condi-
tions which might produce con-.
vulsions. They are then started on
"It may take three to four
months to find out the precise
type and amount of drug needed
to control a convulsive disorder,"
says Dr. Jones. "Because there are
so many variations in the illnesses,
there are no pat answers. Dis-
orders range from a mild, three-
second blackout to long and ex-
haustive convulsions with an in-
finite variety of causes and mani-

De Gaulle Isolates France
With 'Unity Blueprint'I

Associated Press News Analyst
BONN-Once the leader of the
European unity movement, France
finds itself isolated by President
Charles de Gaulle's insistence on
his blueprint for unit.
Even his close ally, West Ger-
man Chancellor Konrad Adenauer,
won't go along.
Last January Adenauer traveled
to Paris and signed a treaty with
?R }.f ff
_ -

it is - France, West Germany,
Italy, Holland, Belgium and Lux-
embourg. All are continental coun-
It could have been expected that
Adenauer would swing West Ger-
many toward de Gaulle's idea of
a "European Europe"-friendly to
non-continental Britain and the
distant United States, but distinct-
ly separate and going its own way.
It didn't work out.
An energetic generation of
younger men and a set of stubborn
economic facts made it mpossible.
Press Consultations
Leaders Of the four other nations
in the Common Market have
pressed hard for contacts with
Britain-regular consultations at
least, so that policies do not draw
too far apart. In Germany Erhard,
and Foreign Minister Gerhard
Schroeder, are sympathetic.
Less than two weeks ago{West
Germany echoed to cheers for
President John F. Kennedy. He is
a man with a reputation in Europe
for advocating the broadest kind
of European and Atlantic unity.
At the same time is was becom-
ing clear that West Germany could
not now move closer to France on
the main practical problem worry-
inig the Common Market these
days-farm prices.
Lower Prices
France wants lower prices with-
in the Common Market. West Ger-
man farmers don't want to give up
a pfennig and Adenauer supports
them. France wants a'bidger share
of the Common Market for its
grain and beef. West Germany,
doesn't want to antagonize its sup-
pliers from outside the market
So when Adenauer and de
Gaulle got together for their first
talks under the new treaty this
week they made no visible pro-
gress. Contacts with Britain were
not even mentioned in their final

The University's Great Lakes
Research Division is studying the
sediment cores from the bottom
of Lake Superior to shed some
light on the history of the Great
Lakes Basin.
Core samples under study were
recovered last summer from the
bottom of Lake Superior in water
depths of 500 to 1100 feet by a
party from the Research Division,
part of the Institute of Science
and Technology.
The work also included water
sampling for chemical analysis
and subbottom depth recording
to locate bedrock formations. It
was carried out first aboard the
University research vessel Inland
Seas and later aboard the Sub-
marex, a commercial vessel equip-
ped with a drilling derrick.
The studies were made possible
by National Science Foundation
grants to Prof. James H. Zum-
berge (now president of Grand
Valley College) and Prof. Paul L.
William Farrand, field director
of the latest expedition, points.
out that study of the cores and
other research data, still continu-
ing, will help explain the history
of Lake Superior basin, especially
during the last ice age which
appears to have been crucial in
its development.
"Most of the bottom of the lake
is now 500 to 1300 feet deep, or
as much as 700 feet below sea
level," he explained.
"However, on the bottom of the
eastern part of the lake there is
a submerged stream system, with
valleys 500 or more feet deep and
80 miles long. This strean) system
must have originally. developed
when the. Lake Superior area was
dry land and above sea level," he

believe that the floor of Lake
Superior foundered after the de-
velopment of the river system, but
we cannot be sure until the age:
of the river is established, Far-
rand said.
The sediments on the bedrock
floor of the lake contain evidence
only of the last glaciation. Each
of' the four ice advances added
something to the lake basins as
they are now, Farrand added.
"The cores taken during this
project reveal glacial deposits, ap-
parently not older than 15,000
years, lying directly on sandstone
bedrock which is around 500 mil-
lion years old. The last ice advance
apparently cleaned out all earlier
glacial deposits. Above the young-
est glacial deposits is a rather
thick layer of clay deposited in
ancestral stages of Lake Superior,
some of which were as much as
500 feet above present lake level,"'
Farrand explained.
The lower part of the clay is
bright red, being derived from the'
red bedrock on the south shore
of the lake, and the upper part

is gray clay laid down in annual
layers, called varves, each about
one-half inch thick. Thirteen
hundred varves have been counted
in one core, which means thirteen
hundred years were required for
its deposition, Farrand said.
"About 900 years ago the sedi-
mentation rate in the deeper
water of Lake Superior dropped
off abruptly. Since that time only
a very thin layer of gray ooze or
brown mud has been laid down,"
Farrand said. This trend may be
witnessed as one looks into the
lake, clear and pure with almost
no sediment except on the shore.

cooperation on European matters.
That was an unfortunate moment
for unity-de Gaulle had just an-
nounced he would not let Britain
join the European Common Mar-
Adenauer was criticized for sign-
ing just then. He strengthened
the suspicion that he was much
less eager to work with Britain
than some members of his cabinet

now scheduled to succeed him.
