Now I'm wondering, how can an Iceberg nhlch Is In the middle of a salt water ocean vleld fresh water? Aren't Icebergs formed In Ihe ocean? A. No. They're formed on land. In a cnld country where there's a tremendous snowfall, the amount and weight o[ the snow causes the snow In compact and change to Ice. As more and more ice piles up, Ihe ice gradually moves and you have a glacier. When it 'reaches the ocean the front of the glacier breaks olf and since Ice is lighter than water, it floats and you now have an Iceberg. That's one explanation, hero's another: If the temperature of salt water is lowered below the freezing point, the water freezes but the salt does not, and the salt solution is drained olf. So there you have two reasons for a fresh water iceberg in a salt water ocean as explained to us by Dr. John Harvey, geology professor at 1I-SU. Q.

Shmaryahu Gulman said his group has discovered remains of a wall, houses, Roman-era pottery and a water source on the Golan Heights overlooking the Sea of Galilee, an area seized from Syria in Ihe war. He said he believes this to be the site of Gamala, that "ev- erything seems to fit." Gutman said he will start ex- cavation on the site as soon as he gets permission from the government. 1 The mass suicide occurred after G.im.ila fell to Vespasian's Roman legion.i.

He was 10 years her senior. DC Gaulle was toi> proud to make u-c of her money tn ease the difficult years of low army pay nnd a growing family. Yvonne learned the careful shopping ami sewing tricks of a budget-conscious housewife which were to serve her in good stead in rationed war- time Kngland. Throughout her husband's rise to fame and his years in the highest office in the land, Mrs. De Gaulle remained in the back- ground, detesting publicity, nev- er granting an inten-icw, avoid- ing photographers.
