Success! I made a device with two wires wrapped in tape and sandwiched between two pieces of thin plastic. The wires extened below the bottom of the plastic and turned up like the wires on the flash bulbs. I put this end in the flash socket. On the other end the wires extened about three inches out of the plastic sandwich. I touched these wires to the contacts on the flash, turned the flash on and hit the shutter buttonon the camera. The flash flashed. Now I have to make one strong enough for daily use.
Thanks for all the suggestions and help.
AgX: Those SX-70 flash adaptor are cool.
