Israel Scientists Develop
New Serum for Rabies

Direct JTA Teletype Wire to The Jewish News

JERUSALEM — A vaccine against rabies, giving
promise of safe immunization before the onslaught of the
infection and not after it ,as the present vaccine does, has
been developed in Israel, Dr. A. Kidron of the Israel
Veterinary Institute reported Tuesday.
Addressing the fifth International 13iological Stand-
ards Conference, Dr. Kidron noted that the present vac-
cine, which was developed by use of rabbit brains as-
culture, may affect the patient's brain causing partial
paralysis. Although the likelihood of this happening is
not great, averaging once in 300 vaccine treatments, the
possibility has led doctorg to avoid use of the vaccine
unless rabies is definitely suspected.
Dr. Kidron said the new vaccine developed in chicken
eggs had been shown in preliminary tests to be free of
any • threat to the brain and therefore usable without
danger immediately, even in doubtful cases.
He said this meant that the danger could now be
avoided of giving the vaccine when it was too late in the
course of the rabies to be effective.

Records of 110,000
Jewish Victims

GENEVA, (JTA) — Detailed
information about nearly 110,-
000 more Jewish victims of
Nazism has been microfilmed
from German records at the for-
mer Nazi concentration camp at
Auschwitz, Poland, it was an-
nounced here, by the Interna-
tional Red Cross.
The records will be added to
the files of the International
Tracing Service, which the Red
Cross maintains at Arolsen,
West Germany.
Many documents kept by the
Nazis, giving exact names, ages
and home origins of victims of
extermination are on file at the
museum at Auschwitz, which is
maintained by the Polish gov-
The latest addition to those
documents, to be made available
to stvAlents and others wishing
to consult the Arolsen records,
contains the names of 34,346
perions brought to Auschwitz
for extermination. In addition,
the records now list the _names
of 75,528 other victims brought
to Auschwitz, Ma id a n ek and
other extermination centers in
the East. Included in the latter
group are the names of victims

Germany's Debt Paid, New Generation Claims

NEW YORK, (JTA) -- Dr.
Joachim Prinz, national presi-
dent of the American Jewish
Congress, told the quarterly
meeting of the administrative
committee that after a decade
of "atonement" by Germany's
political leaders for Hitler's
crimes against the Jews, a new
generation was coming to
power with a growing belief
that Germany had paid its
debts for the excesses of the
Nazi regime and that the rec-
ord of the past must be for-

Dr. Prinz warned that "Ger-
man - Jewish relationships ap-
peared to be entering a new
stage, one that will require
elope and careful watching by
all men of good will who can-
not lightly dismiss the horrors
of the Nazi era."
One bright spot in the pres-
ent German picture, Dr. Prinz
said, is the role of the press,
radio and television in expos-
ing renewed outbreaks of anti-
Semitism, attacking g r owing
neo-Nazi movements and warn-
ing of anti-democratic develop-
ments in the country.
