On the occasion of the 16th anniversary of its statehood, the
government of Israel issued a series of three "Independence Day"
stamps in honor of the Weizmann Institute of Science. The three
WIS stamps are in the values of 8, 35 and 70 agorot respectively
(an agora is the equivalent of one-third of an American cent).
Each depicts a different phase of scientific research at the Weizmann
Institute. The 8-agorot stamp symbolizes terrestrial spectroscopy
—a new science, forming part of geophysics, which was developed
at the Weizmann Institute by Prof. Chaim Pekeris, head of the
Applied Mathematics Department. Terrestrial spectroscopy enables
scientists td study the earth's interior and to locate earthquake
centers. The design on the 35-agorot stamp represents the study
of macromolecules of the living cell. Macromolecular substances
are among the most important constituents of the living cell, con-
trolling and recreating life. The Weizmann researchers have delved
into the mysteries of macromolecules, synthetic and natural, and
have made important contributions to this field of modern scientific
exploration. The third WIS stamp, in the value of '70 agorot, is
dedicated to the Weizmann Institute's work with electronic com-
puters, a branch of activity also - directed by Prof. Pekeris. The
first computer was built by the Institute ten years ago. Named the
WEIZAC, it performed for 50,000 hours and was instrumental in
opening up new fields in geophysics, statistical mechanics and atomic
physics and aided in the solution of problems in nuclear physics,
crystallography, isotopes and chemistry. A new electronic computer
was acquired by the Institute in 1963 and was named "1604." The
applied mathematics department of WIS built a third computer
which was given the name of "The Golem."

Argentinian Vows Fight on Racism

tine Foreign Minister Zavala Critz
assured a delegation representing
the Latin American section of the
World Jewish Congress that the
government would not permit any
racist propaganda against any re-
ligious group.
The foreign minister gave the
assurance after the members of
the delegation protested the anti-
Semitic activities currently being
carried out by Arab agents in
Argentina. The World Jewish Con-
gress just concluded its Latin
American conference here with
leaders from Argentina, Brazil,
Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay.
The conference concluded with
a dinner in honor of Mark Turkow,
representative of the World Jewish
Congress in Latin America, on the

occasion of his 60th birthday. Tur-
kow was lauded by speakers, in-
cluding Israel's ambassador Joseph
Avidar, for his activities for the
Jewish cause in Latin American
countries and other lands.
