Melvin Duchan, 22,
Killed in Auto Trip
An automobile accident took the
life of 22-year-old Melvin Duchan
Feb. 17, when he and two friends
were on a motor tour of the Negev
between semesters at Bar Ilan
Mr. Duchan, son of Mr. and Mrs.

Expert on Revolution;
Testified on Protocols
PALO ALTO—One of the world's
leading experts and writers on the
Russian Revolution, Boris I. Ni-
colaevsky, died Tuesday at age
78. A non-Jew, he testified in 1934
against the notorious "Protocols
of the Elders of Zion" documents.
He was curator of the Nicolaev-
sky Collection at the Hoover Insti-
tution on War, Revolution and
Peace at Stanford University at
the time of his death.
Nicolaevsky told a cantonal court
in Berne, Switzerland, in 1934, that
the Protocols were false. This col-
lection purports to reveal plans for
Jewish world domination, and the
anti-Semitic forgeries were revived
by the Nazis in the 19305. Jewish
groups in Switzerland brought
criminal libel actions and won
them in 1935.
