Are diamonds really a girl's best
This is not necessarily so, since
General Electric's announcement
of man-made diamonds. An exhib-
it of these gems will be featured in
the Union Open House to be held
from 1 to 5 p.m. tomorrow.
Although GE officials are not
now interested in making these di-
amonds for jewelry purposes, their
use in industry is unlimited.
If, however, these new diamonds
would become available for mak-
ing jewelry, the future might see
the price of diamonds fall to a
new low.
"Real McCoy"
GE officials emphasized that
these diamonds are not synthetic,
but are "the real McCoy," as
proven by chemical tests and X-
Ray analyses.
Research workers have been try-
ing to develop these gems for over
125 years, but no other claims
have been substantiated by X-Ray
Another aspect of the exhibit
will be a display of 13 color pho-
tographs and a movie on crystal
Beginners may be interested in
a display of a $20,000-scale jet
engine, with an animated working
model to explain the jet principle.
