Nine American organizations
representing survivors of Na-
zism from Germany, Hungary,
Poland, Roumania, Czechoslo-
vakia and Yugoslavia today sent
a cable to top West German
government officials protesting
the restitution plans of the Ger-
man government now before
the West German Parliament.
The nine organizations
making the protest are the
Association of YugoSlav Jews
in the U.S., United Romanian
Jews of America. Inc., Club
of Polish Jews, Jewish Nazi
Victims Organization of
America, American Associa-
tion of Former European Jur-
ists, American Federation of
Jews from Central Europe,
Association of Jews from
Czechoslovakia in the U.S.,
World Federation of Hungar-
ian Jews and the Widows
Group.
The cable is a protest against
the decision of the German
Finance Ministry to ask for only

`Homemade' Device
Widens N-Powers at
Weizmann Institute

REHOVOTH — A "home-
made" machine for interpreting
bubble chamber pictures has
opened up new vistas in ele-
mentary particle physics at the
Weizman Institute.
This was stated here by Prof.
Gideon Yekutieli, a senior sci-
entist in the Institute's nuclear
physics department and head of
its bubble chamber laboratory.
Institute scientists will now
be able to participate in the
research work being carried
out with the world's largest
proton accelerators, which are
located at the Geneva head-
quarters of CERN (European
Centre for Nuclear Research)
and at laboratories in the
United States.
Israel cannot afford such ac-
celerators, which have an energy
output of about 30 billion elec-
tron volts, but her scientists
will henceforth be able to ana-
lyze experiments conducted with
them.
The machine was the largest
ever constructed in the Insti-
tute's workshops. It has 20,000
parts and weighs two tons.
There has long been close co-
operation between the Insti-
tute's nuclear physics depart-
ment and CERN. Visits have
been exchanged between Reho-
both and Geneva and the two
institutions last year jointly
sponsored the International Con-
ference on High Energy Physics
and Nuclear Structure.

$100 million in additional resti-
tution money. The Conference
on Jewish Material Claims
Against Germany had recom-
mended that a minimum of $250
million be provided for those
survivors of Nazi persecution
and confiscation who have as yet
not received restitution from
the West German government.
"Debt of honor" pronounce-
ments have been made in the
past by the present German
chancellor, Ludwig Erhard, and
the former chancellor. Dr. Kon-
rad. Adenauer.
The cable, following a special
meeting of the nine groups, ex-
pressed regret that the West
German Finance Ministry re-
fuses to request an increase in
the hardship fund above 400
million Deutsche Marks ($100
million) and to reopen registra-
tion for Nazi victims who for
one reason or another had not
previously made application for
German restitution.

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

WASHINGTON — The U. S.
Supreme Court is being asked
to direct the state of Florida
to heed a high court ruling out-
lawing Bible reading and prayer
recitation in the public schools.
Four Miami parents filed
a notice of appeal to the high
court of a Florida Supreme
Court decision upholding the
Florida statute requiring daily
Bible reading in public schools.
The appeal also asked for re-
versal of the Florida court's
ruling that sustained recitation
of the Lord's prayer and the
conducting of religious bacca-
laureate programs, and reli-
gious tests as a qualification for
teacher employment.
The four Miami residents—a
Unitarian, an agnostic and two
Jewish parents—are being rep-
resented without fee by the
American Jewish Congress.

Israeli Gets U. S. Grant
to Study Sex of Plants

REHOVOTH — A study of the
sexual characteristics of plants
is now being carried out at the
Weizmann Institute of Science
with a 200,000-pound grant re-
ceived from the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture.
It is expected to provide basic
biological information and help
in the development of more
productive plant varieties.
The project is under the di-
rection of Dr. Esra Galun, act-
ing head of the plant genetics
section, who will try to discover
how sexual characteristics of
plants are determined.

lomats met for an hour at the
