Theodore L. Shear, professor of archeology at Princeton University who heads the team, said today the excavations will be completed within a week. The excavations, financed by the Greek government and the Ford Foundation, are taking place in the west part of Ath-ens'.s ancient market, northwest of the Athens Acropolis. "The guide for our excavations is an ancient toiUTSt, Pau-samas, who visited Athens in the 2nd century EC," Shear said. "We are using his memoirs as a textbook for our work."

"We hold that the 12-man panel is not a necessary ingi-edi-ent of trial by jury," said Jus-lice Byron R. White for Ihe court. Justice Thurgood Marshall was the sole dissenter. The niling specifically approved Florida's six-man jui^. But it left open the question whether juries may consist of fewer than six persons. In 1898 the Supreme Court gave common law the strength of constitutional command by requiring 12-man jury trials. Today's decision said: "That particular feature of the jury system appears to have been an historical accident, unrelated to the great purposes which gave rise to the jury in the fir.st place." At present 13 states besides Florida use juries of fewer than 12 members far criminal trials. Nine of the 14 states provide a jui'y of fewer than 12 where the offence carries a one-year maximum prison penalty. 12 Sti*ickeii After Dinner WEYBURN, Sask.

STARTS NEXT YEAR The wrk experience program Is to start in the 1971-72 school year and will then be closely evaluated by the education de-pai-tment, Mr. Clark said in a statement. Edmonton separate schools currently have a work experience program but it is tied directly with vocational courses in school, the ministei' said. "I don't know of any other province which has established work experience as an entity mito itself and which has decided to allow credits for this sort of education. The 10 credits to be allowed for the two courses planned will comprise part of a student's total of 100 credits required for a high school diploma. Any student - employer contract must be approved by the Alberta Board of Industrial Relations. To quaUfy, work experience programs must be at least 125 hours in duration each, and must be carried out under the guidance of a teacher.
