THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
He that knows himself knows
how to strengthen his weakness,
and the wise man conquers every-
thing, even the stars in their
courses. —Baltasar Gracian.
Finally this vast and complex
body of information will be fed
into computers, indexed, and fur-
ther made available at the U.S.
Office of Education and, hope-
fully, at the Library of Congress.
In the past, a researcher on the
Middle East spent most of his time
hunting for source materials in
various parts of the world, Prof.
Mansoor pointed out, "and much
of it was inaccessible because of
distance and language barriers.
He rarely had enough time left to
study and evaluate the materials
The Wisconsin study attempts to
reverse that order, Mansoor con-
tinued, "to supply the scholar with
all the source material he needs
and let him spend all his time
studying and evaluating."
He called special attention to the
fully completed computerized index
which will list and cross list some
120,000 events, 35,000 documents
and 18,000 individuals. "Without
the computers, it would have taken
20 more years to complete the
work and doubled the required
budget and staff."
Mansoor, chairman of Wiscon-
sin's department of Hebrew and
Semitic studies ever since it was
established on the Madison campus
in 1955, teaches and conducts re-
search in both modern and ancient .
languages of the Middle East.
The Single Adults of the Jewish
Center will hear Kal Tillem, Jew-
ish Vocational Service counselor at
a general meeting 8:30 p.m. Tues-
day at the Center.
Through films and discussion,
Tillem will describe the various
services available at JVS and how
they may be utilized.
The Center Single Adults will
sponsor a weekend at Camp Tama-
rack Jan. 9-11. There will be ice
skating, skiing, tobogganing, wie-
ner roast, music and dancing.
Deadline for registration is Dec.
26. For information, contact Ralph
