Old Bloeks'
From Tomb
ODisplay
By EDWARD GERULDSEN
Egyptian rooms of the Kelsey
Museum of Archaeology are cur-
rently housing an authentic re-
construction of an ancient Egyp-
tian tomb, incorporating 2500-
year-old blocks from the original
structure.
The exhibit includes carved
limestone blocks from the walls of
the tomb of Bak-en-ran-ef at
Saqqara.
Bak-en-ran-ef lived about 2500
years ago, during the reign of
Psamtek I of the 26th Egyptian
dynasty (663-609 B.C.). He was
vizier (minister of state) and gov-
ernor of the capitol city of Egypt,
which at that time was Memphis.
Worshipping Osiris
The literal translation of Bak-
en-ran-ef's name contains no vow-
els, so the actual pronunciation is
in dispute. Various archaeologists
insert different vowels in the lit-
eral translation, Bk-n-rn-f, to
make it sound as they believe it
was originally, pronounced.
Bak-en-ran-ef's picture is carved
on the upper right wall of the

GABRIEL DOOM t
Once every month Gabriel Doom
Locked himself up in a sound-proof room;
Then he laughed out loud and rocked with glee
At a life that was funny as life could be!
He laughed at the weather, sunny on Monday
. rainy on Saturday, rainy on Sunday.
He laughed at the news so loaded with grief
that an ax murder came as a pleasant relief!
He cried, "what with worry, hurry, and strife.
you couldn't ask for a funnier life!"

of the chief gods of the ancient
Egyptians.
The hieroglyphic picture writing
on the blocks offer prayers and
charms for the well-being of Bak-
en-ran-ef in the next world, "the
Land which loves silence".
Has "False Door"
In one wall of the tomb is a so-
called "false door", to allow the
passage of the man's spirit, should
it return to Earth. To provide for
the spriit on its return, the ori-
ginal tomb was supplied with ar-
ticles of furniture, household ef-
fects, clothes, and food. The re-
turned spirit may then inhabit the
preserved corpse and live com-
fortably.
To make the after-life more en-
joyable for the deceased, scenes
were painted on the walls depict-
ing all the activities that individ-
ual had enjoyed on Earth - hunt-
ing, fishing, banquets-, in the be-
lief that magic would somehow
enable him to enjoy those pleasant
pastimes again.
After-Life Concept Different
The Egyptian conception of an
after-life was quite different from
ours. To them, existence in the
next world is much like this one,
requiring the same basic necessi-
ties,
The chief preservative used in
the mummification of the de-
ceased was natron, a compound
occuring in a few places in Egypt.
It is chiefly composed of sodium
carbonate and sodium bicarbonate,
with salt as an impurity.
The carved stones in the Kelsey
exhibit were loaned by the Metro-
politan Museum of Art in New
York, where blocks from the "false
door" and ceiling of the same
tomb are on display.

As campaigning for the national
elections next month rises to a
feverish peak, the University Sur-
vey Research Center is rapidly
making preparations for a nation-
wide study on voting motivations.
This study is part of a continu-.

elections begun in 1948 to throw
light onto the whys and wherefores
of the popular vote.

derly the vote rather than the
usual variables such as economic
status which have been used in
the past," Prof. Campbell stated.
The study group plans to inves-
tigate such variables as the influ-
ence of group membership upon
the vote and upon party identi-
fication, and the extent to which
people inherit their attitudes from
those of their families.
Among the results expected to be
found are political motivation is
multi-variant, that is, people do
not vote just for the candidate.
The more motives a person has
concerning government, the more
likely he is to vote.
However, should these motives
conflict with one another, the
person is less likely to vote or will
vote a split ticket.
