Pointing out that the totally unaware of any defect in boy had no previous experience Accordingly, the court held him not liable. The judge said that, inasmuch as Freddie was lending the drill "for free," he should not bear a heavy responsi- bility for its safety. Most courts are reluctant to impose liability on the person who with power tools, the court said he was all too likely to get hurt. On the other hand, the danger may be so obvious that a warning would be superfluous. This was the ruling in a case involving a welding device that had an un- guarded electric fan. The bor- rower, cut by the fan, filed suit for damages, claiming the lender should have warned him that the blades were exposed. But the court dismissed his action, saying that the blades--in plain sight--were their own best warning to be careful. As one judge put it, there is no duty to warn the user that a knife will cut, that a match will burn, or that a hammer will mash a thumb. "No one needs notice," said the judge, "of what he already knows."

Hebert marks the site. Henl0000 J. Taylor onnationalandinternationalaffairs Our Central Intelligence Agency reports that the Kremlin is now feeding the Egyptian armed forces through a cage. Moscow has quietly shut down on the supply of spare parts which makes these forces functional. The CIA finds that the Soviet navy continues to use Alexandria, Mersa Matruh and So|lure as eastern Mediterranean bases to its own independent benefit. From these it effectively confronts our 6th Fleet elements based in Greece and dependent on Greece. Greece is a strategic imperative to us and we have 12 U.S. military installations there, some of them nuclear. But in the case of Egypt's own forces Moscow is adopting its classic method of Red control--equip a country but ration the spare parts. And, behind the scenes, the CIA finds Egyptian President AnwarSadat caught in the trap. The chief villians in the project are Communist party leader Leonld I. Brezhnev and Red Army Chief of Staff Marshal Matvie Zakharov, the godfather of Egyptian rearmament after the disasterous Six-Day War with Israel. The late President Gamal Abdel Nasser took Sadat with him on his last mission to Moscow before he died. There Margaret Dana's Column CONSUMER'S QUESTION-BOX Question. How high in calories are the whole wheat grain breakfast cereals you can now buy? How do they differ in calories from cornflakes, puffed oats, etc.? Sadat courted Brezhnev and Zakharov but, once President, began a private undercover war with both of them. Zakharov has no respect whatever for the Egyptian military structure. By the first daylight in the Six-Day War, Egyptian officers as a whole on fronts like the Sinai com- mandeered any available jeeps, trucks and even am- bulances and deserted the troops, fleeing for their own safety to--and across--the Suez Canal. The CIA finds that Zakharov quips about Egyptian officers "who draw their swords and cut down a side street" and believes the Egyptian soldier is not likely to forget all that. In fact, Zakharov makes no attempt to conceal his contempt for everything Egyptian. Among other affronts, on Zakharov's Cairo visits he repeatedly barred all Egyptians within miles of the Heliopolis airport and once arrogantly staged an orgy of anti-Egyyptian antics against the Egyptian onlookers in front of Cairo's Hilton Hotel. The CIA knew that things then went from bad to worse in Egyptian-Soviet relations, a true coup for CIA Director Richarrd M. Helms. When the disgruntled Sadat ordered the Soviet with- drawal the CIA found that the Soviet had in Egypt 5,000 military advisers and 15,000 regular Red Army officers and troops. There were 200 Russian pilots, 69 jet bombers, 365 Jet fighters, including four highly advanced MIG-23s, 10 Sukhot-lls, and 10 TU-16s, 104 helicopters and 14 long-range reconnaissance aircraft. There were, and remain, 1,500 Russian tanks compared with less than 1,000 before the disastrous Six-Day War, 570 pieces of heavy Soviet artillery, 1,100 armored personnel carriers and at least 50 Soviet-built rissile-launching bases with extremely intricate search radar. The CIA located more than 1,000 Soviet SAM missiles. Many are on tracked vehicles and thus mobile. These are now deployed from the port of Alexandria to upper Egypt where they protect the $,500 million Russian-built Aswan Dam. This is the most expensive Soviet foreign-aid project in existence anywhere. But all this Soviet military equipment lives on spare parts obtainable only from the U.S.S.R., and the CIA finds that through the Kremlin rationing plan the mobile rocket units, trucks, tanks, artillery, etc., are rapidly growing inoperable. The Kremlin masters are proving again that there are countless ways they can twist your arm without laying a hand on you. The CIA also finds that in a companion operation the Soviet secret infiltration is crippling the Egyptian in- telligence services. The top apparatus is the Muhabbaret EI-Amma, or General Intelligence Agency (GIA), with almost unlimited powers of arrest, inquisition, etc. It is responsible to President Sadat personally. The Mabahes EI-Amma is the secret police and is under the Minister of Interior. It deals with internal security. Both services employ what Egyptians call "The Public Eye": hundreds of thousands of informers everywhere--in hotels, in bazaars, in offices, on street corners, in all gatherings, etc. "The Public Eye" performs for bits of bakhsish (bribe money), small favors or whatnot and the Soviet infiltration is short-circuiting everything. By rationing Egypt in the ;shipment of spare parts on the one hand and this crippling of Egyptian intelligence on the other the Kremlin masters retain their mastery. Answer. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's "Nutritive Value of Food," wheat flakes with added nutrients provide 110 calories per ounce, wheat flakes, 100; and shredded wheat, I00 calories per ounce. How much difference there might be between these and specific whole wheat grain cereals I cannot say without knowing the brand. But there is no difference in calorie counts between a cup of whole wheat flour and a cup of all- purpose whi*.e flour--each having 400 calories. It is reasonable to assume whole wheat and other wheat cereals will provide about the same caolories unless a good deal of sugar has been added. Cornflakes have 110 calories per ounce, puffed oats, 115 calories. Question. Is there any danger in using stainless steel or aluminum cookware in which pits have appeared in the surface disclosing a black metal underneath? Answer. The black spots which you see when the metal becomes pitted are not due to a black metal beneath the surface, but come from discoloration caused by acid reaction on the metal. This also causes the pitting. It is not a food hazard but can often be prevented by making sure acid foods do not stand any length of time in the pans. Question. I would like to know whom to get in touch with to report finding foreign objects or bugs in processed foods? Recently we found live bugs in a new box of crackers. I wrote to the company but never heard from them. And recently I bought some margarine, of a well-known brand, and found it had green spots on it. I wrote that company, too, but never heard from them. Answer: Report these complaints to the Food and Drug Administration, Bureau of Foods, Division of Compliance. If you have a local office of the FDA listed in your nearest city, use that address to report. If not, send your complaint to Washington, D,C. 20204. Question. Several of my friends have been discussing things we have heard or read about the danger of misusing a vacuum cleaner. I have the directions which came with mine, but they don't tell me some of the things I'd like to know. For instance, when it is safe to use it on a wet carpet, and can it be used for spraying paints like some ads say'?. Can you suggest a source of extra instruction? Answer. Yes, a leaflet called "STOP--Before Using Your Household Vacuum Cleaner," has been produced by Un- derwriter's Laboratories, Inc., to use with the directions that were supplied with a vacuum cleaner. It is a list of "Don'ts" to guard against possible hazards from the wrong use of the cleaner.
