Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Jg THE IETHDRIDGE HERALD Tueidcry, May 5, 1970- J-amil y Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: In a recent, column you said the safest place to be during an electrical si om is in a car. A number of years ago the National Gejgraphic Society published the results of extensive experimentation with rela- tion to the action of lightning. A car with the driver inside was repeatedly struck with a million volts of man-made The man in the car suffered no injuries whalso- ever. The tests proved that if only the tires touched the ground and there were no loose parts or other objects in contact with the earth and if the occupants did not allow any part of their bodies to touch the metal parts of the car, they could not be injured. The National Gem-graphic Society further concluded that the three safest places to be during a lightning storm are (1) in the furnace (2) in the refrigerator and (St hi a car. Clifford H. S. DEAR CLIFF: Thank you for the supportive evidence. The next letter should be of interest to you. DEAR ANN LANDERS: We had always heard the chances of being struck by lightning while in a car were about ten million to one. Well meet the one in ten million. We live in Ionia, Michigan. In 1963 we were rolling the Northwest Expressway into Chicago. The children were nervous about the lightning which seemed to be flashing all around us. Both my husband and I kept telling them that the safest place to be during an electrical storm is in a car. In mid-sentence ka-pow-! A tire blew out. The smell of burning sulphur was suffocating. The radio was knocked out and the top piece of tire antenna "evaporated." We knew at once that lightning had struck the car. The tire company refused to honor the guarantee. They said "This was no ordinary blowout." They were right. We were one in ten million! J.H.N. DEAR J.H.N.: Thanks for the fill-in. But I'd still rather be in a car than in a furnace or refrigerator.

J-y Middle East Problem Concerns Everyone The Middle East is of major importance because it is the lo- cation of shrines for "the world's three major religions. And, said Ron Jacques, of Vancouver, who plays the mag- istrate in television's Magis- trate's Court program, both Jews and gentiles should pay attention to tiie situation in the Middle East. "My particular mission is only concerned with making sure people know why and what is going on in the Middle he said. Mr. Jacques first became in- volved in the Israeli issue as a journalist when he was in close contact with Middle East events and is one of the few gentiles involved in Jewish organiza- tions. Following the six-day war in 1967, Mr. Jacques visited Israel. "Once you've been there, you can't help but be biased be- cause of the attitude of the Is- raelis. They're building the only democracy in the Middle he said. Mr. Jacques said comparison of the Israeli war with the war in Vietnam shows how serious the Middle East situation is. Although Israel has only been at war since 1967, the small population of Israel has had 400 times the casualties per capita of the U.S. in Vietnam, if RON JACQUES computed over the same pe- riod of time. If U.S. casualties were as high as those in Israel, Ameri- can citizens would create an uproar, Mr. Jacques said. ITie U.S. can get out of Vietnam, but Israel can't do anything about stuck there. He said he could easily get into Israel with his Canadian passport but with an Israel stamp on it, he would not be allowed to travel into any Arab country. People with Arab stamps in their passports how- ever, are allowed to pass into Israel freely. "News coverage of the Arab- Israeli war is spotty and there could be more in-depth he said. Magistrate's Court is a CTV production which is seen in Lcthbridge at a.m. on weekdays. The show is taped in Montreal and although he has little free time to give lectures, he does have an opportunity to maintain contact with Jewish head offices there. Mr. Jacques was in L c t h- bridgc Monday, during a speak- ing tour of southern Alberta, as spokesman for Youth Aliyah, a branch of work for Hadassah in Canada. The Ilaciassah Itead of- fice in Montreal arranges him speaking tours in Canada. BINGO RAINBOW HALL 1401 5th Avenue N.
