Mr. Jerry Smith of Barstow, California – from The Wisconsin engineer Volume 69



Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

Smith, Robert (ed.) / The Wisconsin engineer  Volume 69, Number 1 (October 1964)

The second subject is Mr. Jerry Smith of Barstow, California. Mr. Smith is a mechanical engineer and district manager for the California Electric Power Co. He has been with this company for twenty years and has been dowsing for the last sixteen years. He has had 1000 successes in 1000 attempts (although success is not defined).

In this especially dry region of our country, Smith is able to locate water sources and predict accurately both the flow and depth.

The best example of Smith's ability concerns a witching expedition to San Luis, Mexico where 400 dry wells had been drilled previously. Mr. Smith witched several good spots of which two were actually drilled. Both wells yielded 2000 gpm. This is a tremendously high figure for any well, anywhere.
