14 TH! IETHMIDGE HHAID Thundny, July 13, Shock waves under fire Blast experts study hearing problems SUFFfELD, Ma. (CP) Cotton batting Is ineffective In protecting the ear from shock waves, says J. B. Watson of De- fence Research Establishment Suffield. That's just one bit of knowl- edge gained In studies aimed at conserving the hearing of Cana- dian soldiers. The studies are being done by shock and blast experts in con- junction with the Defence Re- search Board's medical re- search centre in Toronto. Mr. Watson, head of the engi- neering research section, says that by knowing how shock waves work, soldiers can pro- tect their ears from weapon noise. For example, he says, when a soldier stands near a wall while firing a rifle, shock waves re- bound and ho gets hit twice. A tank commander who fired with a hatch cover opened upright behind his head also was receiv- ing needless noise waves. WEAR PROTECTION By gathering this type of In- formation, it can be determined when soldiers should wear pro- tective devices, he says. "Also, we're looking critically at protective devices and tiylng to improve them. For instance, there are which pro- vide 100-per-cent protection but they don't fit under a combat helmet." Much of the research, he snys, merely is watching sol- diers and suggesting simple ways of Improving their hearing protection. Larger problems could mean looking for modifications to weapons or protective equip- ment. The Suffield station Is In- volved because of its experience In shock and blast testing. Sci- entists have set off large TNT blasts over the years lo simu late the effects of a nuclear ex plosion on a variety of slruc tures. Mr. Watson's section now uses shock tubes, in which ex plosions are simulated, to leam more about the characteristics of shock waves. A model of a new Canadian warship under construction now is being tested in the tubes to find out how much stress its guns will create. EATON'S Smile!

BUY LINE 328-8811 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Recently someone asked you to please publish something that might discourage drunken driving. Maybe this is it: Don "Big Daddy" Garllts is one of the top drag driver: In the world. He has driven cars over 200 MPH on the quar- ter mile from a standing start. Big Daddy travels over miles in a single season. He's a real pro. He didn't think a few drinks could hurt him, so he volun- teered to put on an exhibition to prove it. He drank 12 ounces of 86 proof whiskey. His blood registered .09, which is not even legally drunk in some places. The obstacle course was set up for him, with rubber pylons. He ran the course five times. On the- first four tries he knocked down half tho pylons. On the fifth try he knocked them ALL down. Getting to the statistics: His average while sober was 99 per cent. His average after the booze was 43 per cent. He decided then and there that he would never again drive a car if he had had more than one drink. It's shocking that only 6 per cent of the people drive while drunk, but they cause 66 per cent of all fatal accidents. Clocking In The Pits DEAR CLOCK: Thanks for the short course. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My huSDand's brother, his wife and their two children moved a few doors from us last sum- mer, they are a nice family' and I know my sister-in-law would do anything in the world for me. Tho problem is the way they talk. When Vera wants a favor she never says, "Will you please It's always, "I want you lo Yesterday her 12-year-old boy rang the doorbell and said, "Mom wants you to bring her a five pound sack of sugar when you go to the market today." My husband was standing there and I asked him if he had noticed the rudeness. He said, "Yes, I did notice it but it doesn't bother me because I know they mean well." He said it would be better if I didn't mention it because it might create strained relations. What do you say, Ann? I admit it rankles me and I'm not so sure my husband Is right. Like The DEAR TRIMMINGS: I'm cot optimistic about the chances for retraining your sister-in-law, but I feel you should cer- tainly say something to that 12-year-old kid. Sample; "How about hooking a please onto that instead of just giving an, DEAR ANN LANDERS: When I read the letter in your column signed "17 And High On Life" I decided to send you the lyrics to a song called "Life Is Such A Trippy Thing." Even without the melody the words will give you a lift. Make up your own rune and whistle it, Ann. "Gettin' stoned on sunshine, gettin' high on air 1 Gettin' to It naturally, really getlin' there; Gettin' such a howl on, lovin' what I do I'm so full of happiness, booked on something new. My pot is filled with flowers, my grass is bright and green, My tea Is brewin' in my cup, and still I make the scene; Please don't try to change me, I love the world I've found. Gotta fly my own sweet way, don't try to shoot me down." Hyle, Executive Director, Ding-A-Ling Club, Chicago DEAR RANK: I'm whistling and it's a trip! Thanks for sharing. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "I do brush my leeth after every meal... That'i seven times a day." Cross-country exhibition for Newfoundland painter ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. CP) Fifteen paintings by Maureen Greene of St. John's are sched- uled for a cross-country torn1 this year. Although as an artist here, Mrs. Greene had tier first one-man show outside Newfoundland recently when her work was exhibited at the Beckett Gallery in Hamilton. Gallery owner Tom Beckett invited her to exhibit in his gal- lery during a visit here last summer. Mrs. Greene uses oils on ply- wood to form an intricate de- sign on the themes of flora and fauna. Her work has been called primitive, and one critic, while agreeing with this label because "it fits in the self-taught, appar- ently spontaneous said it also showed "sophistication and intent." Wife of lawyer Richard Greene and mother of four chil- dren aged five to 12, Mrs. Greene said she is able to com- plete only four or five paintings a year. -piaJcAipUwt, Ticket to fortune DUBLIN (Renter) A Ca- nadian will collect a jackpot in the Irish Sweepstakes even though he has lost the winning ticket, it was disclosed here Tuesday. The dilemma of the winner, William T. Armstrong, 61- year-old logger of Badger, Nfld., ramp to light following the July 1 running of the Irish Derby on which the sweep- stake is based. Armstrong held a winning ticket on Derby-winning Steel Pulse but he was unable to find it and could not remem- ber the man who sold the ticket to him. A spokesman [or the Irish Hospital's Sweepstakes here confirmed the number of the ticket, one of 15 jackpot win- ners, was in Armstrong's came. He said If Armstrong can provide proof of identity, the money will be banded over. "There coulri be some delay because we don't want to pay out twice, but he'll get his money even though he can't produce the the spokesman added. love is... having it song thai- means some- thing special to you.
