A comer of the veil of secrecy that has obscured one of Israel's most valued mili- tary assets was lifted this week when an electronics engineer living quietly in Toronto was honoured by the State of Israel. His name is Sidney Hurwich. All that could be learned officially was that his invention had been used in the Israeli raid at Entebbe last year.

It sounds impossible, but }lurwich hirnself says that this is less an invention than "a different application of an old and basic principle of electronics'". Canadian beginnings His invention appears to have grown out of a modest battery-run instrument that he developed eight years ago to help the Canadian police to foil bank robberies. In 1969, he invited Canadian policemen to a viewing. With the instrument con- cealed in the same roam, he invited them to try to lift bags of money. The bags ap- peared to be riveted to the ground, and moreover, the police gun triggers jammed and their watches stopped. A year later. Flurwich got the idea that his ray could save lives by stopping the timing mecha- nisms. He offered it to }srael. When Israeli representatives came to see him, he told them that he was unable to press ahead with the research to de- velop his invention himself, since ite had Gabonese President visits The President of the Gabonese Republic, El Hadj Omar Bongo, visited Canada from October 20 to 23, accompanied by his wife. On October 21, the President signed an agreement in principle with Export De- velopment Corporation chairman and pre- sident John A. MacDonald to establish a '5150-million line-of-credit with Gabon. Further discussions will be held soon be- tween officials 6f both countries to deter- mine the type of goods and services that can be transacted under the line-of-credit pact, which first must be ratified by the EDC board of directors. During his stay in Ottawa, the Gabo- nese head of state, who is also the Presi- dent of the Organization for African unity, held discussions with various Can- adian authorities, on the subject of Can- ada-Gabon relations. stressing the com- mercial and the Francophone aspects, and the broader questions of economics and international politics. just received open-heart surgery. But he was convinced that his invention could be advanced and made powerful enough to neutralise complete weapons sistems over lar a areas. On the Hurwich principle, tirerc was no reason why the new beams 1 crn~ld not reach and disable tanks, ground- , to-ground missiles and complete radar systems, or even objects in the atmosphere. ; ` The beams could also be tacked together to form a screen that would make whole ` ~ zones safe from bombs or missiles. The Israelis will not divulge what tests have been run, or how the Hurwich ray has been developed. The first inkling of its existence was obtained after the Entebbe operation, by military experts curious to find out how the Israeli planes were able to fly to their destination with- out: a single radar instrument in the Middle East and Africa being a}erted, and why, as they approached Entebbe airfield, electricity was mysteriously cut acrd the control tower stopped functioning. In- dead, the operators of Entebbe control tower were the first to be punished by Ids Amin after the Israeli mission suc- ceeded: he had t}tem executed after they defied belief by pleading that all their detection, reception and transmission instruments had locked "as though by magic". International energy rep menu signed Paddle your own canoe The estimated travelling time between Vancouver and Montreal is two years - by canoe, that is. Jerry LaChappelle, 34, of Montreal, and his cousin, Denis Bilo-, 22, of Quebec City, have under- taken a 24,100-mile Odyssey, paddling along the Pacific coast, circling Cape Elora and returning via the Atlantic and the St. Lawrence River. The pair set out from Vancouver in July and, by the end of September, had travelled 2,100 miles to Long Beach, California. "Everybody says it's impossible," said LaChappelle, "nothing's impossible." Al- though the canoeists will be entering the territorial water of ll South American countries during the trip, they arc not concerned about possible attempts by these countries to halt their voyage.
