Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 40 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, May 16, 1973 "Twenty-five years are but a brief mo- ment for a nation wifh a memory more than 35 centuries long." For some nation- hood is still a new idea, others have known nothing else. Experimental technique may detect earthquakes Bv V. SULLIVAN New York Times Service NEW YORK at the California Institute of Tech- nology report that an experi- mental technique for giving eaily wanvng of small earth- quakes also proved applicable to a major quake on the west coast and gives promise of wid- er application for control as well as warning. A phenomenon that seemed to provide advance warning of small earthquakes has been found applicable, as well, to the quake that struck San Fernando, Calif., on Feb. 9, 1971. Furthermore, California sci- entists they have found an explanation for the premoni- tory effect that makes possible the use of artificial explosions to identify earthquake sites many years in advance In "the case of the San Fern- ando quake, which took 59 lives and did an estimated mi'- lion damage, the effect began about three and a half years before the event but was not recognized at the time. It has come to light through the study of routine earthquake records by the seismological laboratory of the California Institute of Technology. The study, reported in the May 11 issue of the journal Sci ence, suggests that for the greatest earthquakes, such as the one that struck Alaska in 1964, the precursor effect may become evident 40 or more years in advance.

At 75, Mrs. Meir lived most of her life before Israel.was fact. Two-thirds of her total experience predates May 14, 1948. She spent'her youth nur- turing a dream of ages. Thus it is for her, and others of Is- rael's senior generation, that they cannot talk of what is now without remembering what was yesterday. But this is not the norm here on the silver anniversary of a tiny, tucked off, but remark- ably significant Middle East- ern state. The lament of Jewish history is being heard less and less in a country which has simply become too young to be so sentimental. Jews under 30 now account for 57 per cent of the population. Jews 25 and under, born shortly before or after the proclamation of state- hood, whose experience is Is- rael as fact, now form nearly half of the citizenry. For these, young people, the first Jewish generation in 19 centuries to have a place and government of its own, the length of Is- rael's memory is not so impor- tant as the breadth of its fu- ture. SAME AGE At 25, Michael Livne and his country share the same age. He dees not waste much of his young life quoting the Torah, conjuring up the bromides of the prophets, or rocking away the hours musing about a Jewish history which, as Arthur Miller once wrote, has been "packing bundles and get- ting away." Livne's hours are too pre- cious for such melancholy. He has a family to look after. The orchard apples need picking, There are textbooks to be read "I learned about Jewish historv tion was still under the British mandate and called Palestine, but he did not suffer from the transition. As an infant, he slept while Zionism triumphed. It is not surprising then that today Zionism is a nice thought Mike Livne, but nothing so urgent or so ultimate as it still to his seniors. "When I was in my early he says, "I went to France with an Israeli youth move- ment. It was the only time I encountered any anti-semitism In my life. I was at a tobacco shop one day with friends and decided to buy a pipe. The shopkeeper knew we were Jews because we were speak- ing Hebrew. Anyway, the mer- chant said the pipe was ten pounds and by mis- take I gave him a five-pound note. He looked at it, then at me, like I was trying to cheat him and than he said: "You cirty Jew.' ANTI-SEMITISM One moment of anti-semi- tism. In 25 years. Livne says the incident greatly affected him. He learned then that "Is- rael is the only place for Jews to live." Yet, Zionism? The suf- ferings of time long past? To Mike Livne's age group, these are things for the old people. The young prefer to concen- trate on the present and the positive. There is no doubt that for all their history, Jews have pro- gressed more in the last two- and-a-half decades than they did in previous centuries com- bined. "We says Israeli President Zalmon Shazar, "wit- nessed a sequence of wonders." The statistics tell some of it. In 25 years, as the prophet Amos foresaw, Israel has "re- stored the fortunes of its peo- ple." More than 450 towns and villages been created in the nation since state proclam- ation More than 1.5 million in the Old immigrants have been reset- Livne, a bit surprised smonc' Hr-d. would ask, "now 1 only wony about today and tomoirow." "Work hard." And tomorrow? "Work hard, too.'' The work ethic indicated there is, of course, not un- usual for Jews of 'any age or period. Yet the philosophy behind it is. Unlike many Is- raelis Ms senior, Mike Lirae does not thank God, Moses, Isaiah, David Ben Gurion and Moshe Dayan for his, daily toil. TT_ -I____ _ A _' r t JULC uLrea uxrL i lae udii y
