If you've wondered-and all who think have-whether all those tests by "inde- pendent researchers" which show one cleaner leaving a sparkling glass, plate or floor and the other a surface marred by film, are on the level, so (finally) has the FTC. Since many of those so- called independent re- searchers or t e s t e r s are probably paid by the corpo- rations ( it isn't to imagine wha's on. LOCKHART CONTINUED FROM FRONT 5, two candidates.
