Dr. Herbert Kaufman
Discovers Drug
Against True Virus

ish research expert reported he
has discovered what may be the
first effective drug treatment
for a true virus disease.
Dr. Herbert E. Kaufman, head
of opthalmology at the Univer-
sity of Florida, reported on his
findings at an international
symposium here on virus re-
search. He reported on his re-
search on two drugs which were
found to be potent against an
eye infection caused by the
herpes simplex virus.
Kaufman said he had used
the two drugs in the treatment
of infections caused by the virus
in the corneas of rabbits and
later of 'a central group of hu-
man patients, in cooperation
with specialists of the Massachu-
setts Eye and Ear Infirmary of
Boston. Without treatment, only
one in ten such infections ends
without . leaving serious damage
to the cornea.

The award, to be given by
the lodge at a meeting sched-
uled for Feb. 22, has been voted
to Msgr. Vincent 0. Genova,
pastor of the Holy Family
Church in Canarsie.
The award was voted to
Msgr. Genova because, last fall,
he . made available for general
community use a large plot of
land donated to his parish for
an athletic field. "Brotherhood,"
said Msgr. Genova, "is a con-
scious movement of adults —
children accept each other at
face value:" Children from fam-
ilies of all faiths in the area,
including many Jewish homes,
use the playing field.

silent prayer that the little kid
walked into the house while
they were singing the -Had

the kid brings them all luck.
The warmth that permeates
the stories in this book imme-
diately absorbs the reader and
is absorbed by him. The co-
operativeness of the family, its
Jewish faith, its devotion com-
bine to make it heartwarming
and inspiring.
In the course of this fam-
ily's life, there is a Jewish
spirit that leads to a full
understanding of the Jewish
festivals, Jewish customs and
the ways of Jewish family
life. Many tales are told, and
there are also exciting ad-
ventures, the most stirring

involving Kezele who was
snatched by a gypsy_ who
wanted to steal from him
the Yad—the Torah pointer
he was handling without his
mother's knowledge—and the
rescue that came through
Todros who beat up and
drove off three gypsies

gathering of feathers for bed-
ding as her daughter's trousseau
—all combine to make a mar-
velous, instructive, entertaining
and exciting set of tales. Mrs.

Anti-Semitic Artist
May Be Deported

Merger of General
Zionist Organizations

immigration authorities were
reported this week to be investi-
gating the case of a Westport
artist who was convicted on a
variety of state and Federal
charges growing out of a two-
year anti-Semitic mail campaign.
The artist, Alan F. P. Moyler
of West Redding, a British sub-
ject, pleaded guilty to the
charges in district and Federal
courts and was sentenced to
fines totaling $700 and placed
on three years' probation. Jail
terms totaling 210 days were
William J. Kennedy, Deputy
District Director of the Immi-
gration and Naturalization Serv-
ice, said that an investigation
for possible deportation of Moy-
ler was under way since he is a
China-born British national who
entered the United States in
1952. He never acquired Amer-
ican citizenship. Some of the
victims received dead rats and
bats in Moyler's mailings.

St. Paul Catholic
Hospital Has Jewish
Chairman of Board

ST. PAUL, Minn., (JTA) —
When the new Catholic Divine
Redeemer Memorial Hospital
opens next month in South 'St.
Paul, it will do so with a Jew
as chairman of its board and his
wife as president of the hospital
Moreover, thanks to this inter-
faith arrangement, the Sister
who will be the dietitian at the
hospital knows how to make
knishes. She was taught how by
Mrs. Edward Rikess, the auxiliary
president. Her husband, a car
dealer, and she are also very
active in the Jewish community.
They have been hosts at lun-
cheon and dinner meetings to
many priests and nuns during
fund-raising and construction ac-
tivity for the new hospital.

TEL AVIV, (JTA) — Mrs.
Rose Halprin, co-chairman of
the two presently ex is ti n.g
World Confederations of Gen-
eral Zionists, expressed per-
sonal doubts and reservations
about a possible merger of the
competing organizations.
She told a press conference
that the confederation of which
she is co-chairman nevertheless
would discuss the entire prob-
lem of merger at a convention
in May.
She said that Hadassah would
insist on the principle that
there should be no identifica-
tion between the merged con-
federation and any political
party in Israel.
Commenting on a proposal
that a branch of the General
Zionist movement should be es-
tablished in Israel to deal only
with problems of the Zionist
movement, Mrs. Halprin said
she could not accent the idea
that the same people who head
the Liberal party in Israel
would also be heads of the Gen-
eral Zionist movement proposed
Mrs. Halprin expressed sur-
prise over "hints" from Dr. Em-
anuel Neumann—who heads the
other confederation — that if
Hadassah blocked the path to
merger, he would try to get
other organizations, now affili-
ated with Mrs. Halprin's group,
to join a united confederation.
She said that "If this is a
threat, I can face it and I will
be firm on our non-identifica-
tion principle."
Asked to comment, Dr. Neu-
mann said that Mrs. Halprin's
position, as reported, amounts
to a rejection of the idea of uni-
fication—even of the suggested
compromise plan of including
within a United Confederation,
not the Liberal Party as such,
but a Zionist body to be set up
in Israel for purely Zionist pur-
poses. "We, on our part," Dr.
Neumann pointed out, "accept
and favor • the principle of non-
involvement in Israel's internal
politics; but we are not pre-
pared to exclude from a world
confederation a group of like-
minded Israeli Zionists because
they are resident Israelis and
citizens of Israel. That would
be absurd."
Dr. Neumann further stated:
"We must likewise reject the
idea that a Zionist group in Is-
rael cannot be affiliated with a
world confederation of General
Zionists, if the leadership of
such a Zionist group includes
persons who occupy prominent
positions in the Liberal Party.
To exclude them on that ground
would mean. denying them
either their rights and duties as
citizens of Israel, or their status
and rights as members of the
World Zionist Organization.
Such a position would be illogi-
cal, un-Zionist in spirit and con-
trary to the structure and pat-
tern of the Zionist movement."
