Youth Also Lags in Latin America, Louis Panush States in Travel Report

In Latin American countries, on
the same scale as in this country
and Western European lands,
a priThlem of great proportion is
the failure to enroll Jewish youth's
interest in Jewish affairs, Louis
Panush, president of the Zionist
Organization of Detroit, states
after a tour of the South American
continent.
Describing the position of Jews
in several countries which have a
total Jewish population of
850,000—nearly 500.000 in Argen-
tina, 150.000 in Brazil. Smaller
numbers in other lands—Panush
pointed to the extensive activities
of the General Zionists, the devoted
efforts in behalf of the Jewish Na-
tional Fund, the functions of
DATA—Central. Body of Jewish
Organizations in Argentina. Pan-
ush stated in his extensive report:
"The Argentinian General Zion-
ists plan to set up a $1,000,000 fund,
the bulk to be contributed by 20
Jews, and the rest to be sold in
shares of $100 each with a guar-
anteed income of 4 12 per cent to
the investors, profits from this
fund to be used to encourage Ar-
gentine Jews to settle in Israel,

help them find housing and open
businesses via financing up to a
maximum of $50,000 each, and
enable them to be absorbed and
acculturated in Israel's life and
economy.
"The I.atin-American Confeder-
ation of General Zionists, whose
central office is in Buenos Aires,
is attempting to accomplish some
of these aims: strengthening the
activities of all general Zionist
orgagnizations in Latin America;
interesting and activating more
, Jews, especially the younger gen-
I oration, in Herzlian Zionism; im-
plementing Zionist ideals.
"The problem of the Jewish
youth in Latin America, Argen-
tina and Brazil included, is a
serious one. Although there arc
some good educational institutions,
many parochial schools in Hebrew
and Yiddish ('Tarbut' and 'Bialik'
are two excellent Hebrew day
schools sponsored by the General
Zionists in Buenos Aires), the
younger generation is not fully
enthusiastic about anything related
to Zionism and Judaism. The Zion-
ist organization fights all kinds of
assimilation on the Jewish scene,
iyouth's pre-occupation with ideals
and causes which are often an-
tagonistic to and threaten Jewish
and Zionist life, with the hope
that some shall return and serve
in the cause of the Jewish people
and Israel.
"Brazilian Zionists face the
same problems as their Argentin-
ian brothers, particularly that of
age and the lack of interest and
involvement on the part of the
younger Jews. The leaders of Rio

Zionists (there is no official or-
ganization in Sao Paolo, nor in
other cities; Rio Zionists cannot
get around to them to organize
them—a problem of distances,
1,000 to 2,000 kilometers apart,
and money) are all of the older
generation.
"During my visit, the Rio or-
ganization opened a new General
Zionist Center, which they had
bought recently, that has an audi-
torium for about 150 people and
a reception-office room. In addi-
tion, a Herzl Library was estali-
lished there in the hopes that
young Jews—who do not like to
belong to parties—will come there
to read and learn about Zionism
and Jews.
"The majority of Jews in Ar-
gentina and Brazil live well, better
than in any other part of the
world, said one. They are mostly
middle class, in business and in-
dustry; more of the working class
and artisans in Buenos Aires, and
some poor. Children born there
are acculturated. Those who go to
Hebrew and Yiddish all-day
schools and high schools do have
a notian of Jewishness and some
interest in Jewish life and culture.
"The story is told about the
second richest banker in Lima,
Peru, a Zionist, who donated an
auditorium, valued at $350,000,
for a Zionist Jewish Center. But,
the question is, who of the 5,000
'Lima Jews will use it? Although
the situation is much different in

Buenos Aires and Rio, I felt that
a
the question even there is a valid
one and that the survival and
future of Zionism. depends not
only on the inner resources and
vitality of these Jewries but also
on what understanding and help
American Zionists, the Jewish
Agency and Israel will give them
and what common meaningful, two-
way bridge will be built between
the American and Latin American
Jewries."

Highest Concentration
of Oxygen 17 in World
Achieved at Rehovot

REHOVOT—The isotope sepa-
ration plant at the Weizmann In-
stitute of Science has achieved a
95 per cent concentration of Oxy-
gen 17, the highest concentration
of that rare isotope ever obtained.
A similar concentration of the
slightly more common isotope
Oxygen 18, was reached some
years ago.
This was announced by Prof-
David Wolf, head of the isotope
separation plant, who pointed out
that ordinary oxygen is composed
mainly of Oxygen 16, with only
miniscule quantities of the isotopes
Oxygen 18 (0.2 per cent) and Oxy-
gen 17 (0.37 per cent).
The very high concentration
of Oxygen 17 achieved at Re-
hovot was the result of years of
research and development under
the direction of Prof. Israel
Dostrovsky, who established the
plant.
Heavy Oxygen (17 and 18), as
well as chemical compounds
"labeled" with these isotopes (by
the Miles-Yeda Co. in Rehovot)
are used in chemical, physical
and biological research at the
Weizmann Institute and all over
the world.

Burke Asks U.S. Govt.

to Discontinue Trainihg
Arab Military Personnel

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Rep. J.
Herbert. Burke, Republican of Flor-
ida, asked the administration to
discontinue training 405 Arab mili-
tary personnel at U.S. bases since
the State Department feels the
U.S. should cool off tensions in the
Middle East by not selling further
jets to Israel.
"The State Department informed
me by letter that a total of 317
personnel from Arab countries are
being trained under the military
assistance program and 88 are
being trained under the foreign
military sales program. Several of
these trainees I know are being
trained as pilots," Burke said. The
congressman said the Arab sol-
diers-16 of them Jordanians—are
being trained to handle U.S. mili-
tary equipment at military bases
in this country.
"It doesn't make sense for the
State Department to recommend
against selling further Skyhawks
to Israel when at the same time it
trains Arab pilots here," Burke
said.
