Urge Brazil Deny Citizenship to Ex-Nazi Officer

RIO de JANEIRO—The Rio

on record Tuesday as opposing,
the granting of Brazilian citi-

Zarchin's Process
on Water 'Secret'
Reported in Look

A "secret" invention by an
Israeli scientist may have far
reaching effects on the water
supply problems of thousands
of American communities and
"dramatically" change the lives
of hundreds of thousands of
People.

Alexander Zarchin, Russian
born Israeli inventor, has re-
vealed his processes to make
salt water sweet to American
backers, the Fairbanks Whitney
Corp., only after much secret
negotiating, the new issue of
Look Magazine reports. But
Zarchin may not have revealed
all the facts.'
"We know 80 per cent of his
secrets," says Menahem Bader,
Director-General of Israel's Min-
istry of Development. "I'm not
sure we know 100 per cent."
Fairbanks Whitney is spon-
soring Zarchin's experiment in
partnership with the Israeli
government. Some observers
believe that ultimately, if it
proves commercially feasible, it
could produce fresh water from
the sea at a cost of about 20c
per 1,000 gallons. This would
be about one-half as much as
the water costs of many Ameri-
can cities today.
