sun hat and dedicated band of
savages, entered the dark and

lost mummies have been replac-

Two other demonstrations
planred will involve the forming
of a human chain around the
courthouse Wednesday morning;
and a Good Friday rally, at a local

Panel discussions and entertain-

"Nixon's Asian Policy." Other'

McCarthy purge of the early:
1950's.

ways led good old Tyrone to his
goal have been replaced by the
Ph.D, the latest in x-ray equip-
ment, and scientific break-
throughs in genetics and the
laws of probability.
It may sound less exciting
than fighting off dust storms and
maniacal, mummy marauders,
but not to University scientists
who claim to have solved a 3.-

000 year mystery by using x-
rays to discover the remains of
two ancient Egyptian queens,
and who have also discovered a
fraudulent mummy in the Uni-
versity's Kelsey Museum.
The two queens had been
"lost" since robbers plundered
their tombs sometime before
1,000 B.C. Anthropologist James
Harris, who heads the Univer-
sity's Egyptian expeditions, iden-
tified them last week as Queen
Tetisheri, queen mother of the
18th Dynasty, and Queen Taw-
osret, wife of Pharaoh Seti I, who
reigned from 1304 to 1290 B.C.
They were identified by a ma-
thematical comparison of their
x-rays and those of their sons
and daughters, who themselves
were preserved as royal mum-
mies. This was the first time
scientists have been allowed to
subject mummies to x-ray.
Despite the application of ad-
vanced scientific techniques, not
all the fun has been taken out
of identifying mummies. Prob-
lems arose, for instance, when
the scientists found a fake baboon
mummy that really contained
parts of a human body. Although
they used the same techniques
that they had been using to ex-

amine the Egyptian royal mum-
my c llection in annual expedi-
ticns to Egypt, they are not sure
when this forgery occurred.
According to Dr. Louise Shier,
acting director and curator of
the Kelsey Museum, the forgery
could have been done in ancient
Egypt when, at the time, there
was a shortage of baboons for
burial ceremonies.
Harris believes that the forg-
ery could have been done in the
nineteenth century, when mum-
mies were shipped wholesale out
of Egypt to museums, private
collectors and even those prac-
ticing witchcraft.
The powdered mummy was be-
lieved to have a great curative
value and is still available in.one
witchcraft store in New York.
To the average layman, the
very mention of a mummy
evokes nostalgic pre-adolescent
fears of Lon Chaney Jr. unravel-
ing as he terrorizes unsuspect-
ing victims. To today's scien-
tists, equipped with all the trap-
pings of modern technology, the
enigmatic world of the Phar-
chs has lost all qualities of mys-
tical intrique and become just
another underexplored region for
scholarly adventure.

In a letter to George Shultz, director
ment and Budget, Nader said the White
visible and illegitimate controls" over
federal agencies.

"The report," said Nader, "contains convincing evidence that
the cost of eliminating water pollution is but a small fraction of
earlier administration estimates and even less than the cost of us-
ing present inadequate control systems."

TWO MARRIED WOMEN who have retained their maiden-
names have been told by 'a Maryland election board that they
will be disenfranchised unless they re-register under their hus-
bands' names.
The action resulted from a decision by the state attorney gener-
al's office.
A STATE DEPARTMENT official said yesterday that the
department has recommended to the White House that the U.S.
recognize Bangladesh as a new nation.
Although President Nixon has indicated that Washington will
eventually grant Bangladesh formal recognition, he has shown no
haste in making any official announcement to that effect.
