Israelis Develop a Measuring Device for Blood Cells

Israel and the Peace Corps Concept


(Copyright, 1966, JTA, Inc.)

WASHINGTON—Will Israelis aid
the U. S. war against poverty by
starting kibbutzim in Alabama and
Israelis may work there or in
Appalachia, Harlem, or perhaps
in the Los Angeles Watts area as
part of a new Washington "re-
verse Peace Corps" concept. It
is envisaged to promote a two-way
exchange between America and
foreign nations.
The Peace Corps is seriously
considering Israel among nations
that might be invited to send
volunteers here under a new pro-
gram recently announced by
President Johnson. An amend-
ment to Peace Corps renewal leg-
islation will soon be submitted to
Congress to implement the idea
of mutual cooperation with other
Israeli experience in youth work
among Moroccan immigrants, they
say, might provide new insights
in dealing with underprivileged
young Negroes. The idea is to
promote better understanding of
America by foreigners who would
help in areas of need. Foreigners
would also take home new skills.
Israel now has extensive com-
mitments in 60 countries of Afri-
ca, Asia, and Latin America where
over 1,000 Israelis are trying to
improve living standards. The
number- of Israeli Peace Corps
and poverty workers is far greater
per capita than Americans engag-
ed in similar pursuits.
Isareli might be able to some
extent to help America in the anti-
poverty program. A limited num-
ber of Israeli experts might be
spared. Also, Americans of all
races and backgrounds would be
welcomed in Israel to - learn from
the Israeli experience in commun-
ity development, integration, ed-
ucation, and other areas. Peace
Corps officials have lauded Israel's
national service philosophy.
Elihu Bergman, an official of the
U. S. Office of Economic Opport-
unity Vista Program, has advocat-
ed the "partnership in progress'
idea. He suggested, for instance,
that demobilized Israeli girl soldi-
ers, experienced in teaching illiter-
ates, could make a contribution
Harris Wofford, associate direc-
tor of the Peace Corps, describ-
ed Israeli cooperation with the
Peace Corps in Africa at a recent
conference of the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee. He
commended Israel's role in help-
ing to cope with problems con-
fronting the international com-
munity, but he did not commit
himself on Israeli participation in
the U. S. domestic war on poverty
because proposals are still under
Mordechai Lador, Counselor of
the Israel Embassy, recently re-
vealed the extent to which Israelis
are already involved in the West-
ern Hemisphere. Israel is assist-
ing 19 Latin American nations.
Bilateral programs are in effect
as well as O.A.S. multilateral
undertakings—all helping Ameri-
ca achieve the aims of the Alli-
ance for Progress.
Teams from Israel are today
in Mexico, Costa Rica, Bolivia,
Argentina, Btazil, Ecuador and
Chile. More than 1,000 Latin Am-
ericans have studied in Israel as
guests in the last five years. Isr-
aeli operations in Latin America

include rural development teams,
agricultural resettlement, actual
participation in execution of pro-
jects, development of cooperatives,
agriculture, and irrigation.
Peace Corps director Jack Hood
Vaughn said recently that to "find
the score" when he arrives in a
new county, he consults first with
the Israelis there. O.E.S. wits have
suggested that perhaps R. Sargent
Shriver can bring a few Israelis
here to rescue the domestic pov-
erty war from its troubles.

NEW YORK--Fragility of red
blood cells, which provides clues
to a variety of problems associat-
ed with human blood use, can now
be measured quickly and easily
with a device developed by a
team of Israeli scientists.
Dr. David Danon and colleagues
at the Weizmann Institute of Sci-
ence, at Rehovot, developed the
device, called a Fragiligraph. Red
blood cell fragility can be tested
in the device in minutes with use

same high quality Scotch, with nothing

Anchor Bible Series Starts
New Testament Translations

The first major New Testament
book to appear in the projected 38-
volume Anchor Bible, and the first
to be prepared by a Catholic schol-
ar, "The Gospel According To
John, I-XII" initiates a two-volume
translation of and commentary on
"The Gospel According to John
and the three Epistles of John."
This volume (chapters I-XII of the
Gospel) has been translated and
edited with an introduction and
commentary by Raymond E.
Brown, S.S., Professor of New Tes-
tament at St. Mary's Seminary in

of only a single drop of blood.
Dr. Danon told a press con-
ference here Tuesday that the
present model of the Fragiligraph
has been in use for about a year.
He said tests of fragility can be
used to gauge the age and norm-
alcy of the cells and to predict
how long transfused cells will
stay in circulation in the receiver.
Other uses, the Israeli sci-
entist said, are in studies of the
