    Medford, Ore.--When lightning struck his lookout post, knocking a spoonful of apricots from his hand and starting a fire in nearby timber, Forest Service lookout man Francis Bush lifted the telephone to report the fire. A second bolt hit the telephone. Unhurt, Bush jumped into his car and drove for help to put out the fire.
