The 25th anniversary of
the Mackinac Bridge on
Nov. 1 recalls the contribu-
tions of bridge engineer
David B. Steinman.
The Mackinac Bridge,
spanning nearly five miles
with its approaches, cele-
brated its 25th anniversary

on Nov. 1. It links Michi-
gan's Upper and Lower
peninsulas across the
Straits of Mackinac.
Steinman was a professor
of civil engineering in Idaho
and New York during the
decade of World War I, and
then began a bridge-
building and designing
career on five continents.
Besides the Mackinac, the
re-construction of the
Brooklyn Bridge in New
York was among the 400
bridges he worked on.
Steinman died in 1960.

Inflation Dispute

JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
Although the Israeli gov-
ernment says that inflation
fell in 1981 from 137 per-
cent to 101 percent, the
World Bank says Israel's
inflation for the year was at
121 percent.
Ghana had 120 percent
inflation according to the
World Bank and Argentina
was at 114. Japan had the
lowest inflation rate at four
percent, followed by Au-
stria, West Germany and
Holland at six percent.

You've never

seen
this many styles,
selling at prices
this low. Hurry,
quantities are
limited.

JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
The Paris-based Kul al-
Arab magazine recently
quoted Lebanese Prime
Minister Shafik Wazzan as
saying Lebanon would
never sign a peace treaty
with Israel under "condi-
tions of conquest."
A Saudi publication
quoted Lebanese President
Amin Gemayel as saying
there was a "special rela-
tionship" between Syria
and Lebanon.

There are 150 psalms in
the Book of Psalms.
