Prof. Shulov still holds ant hope
.for an offspring of this rare species,
however, and the 330-pound greyish-
yellow aging maidens will soon
vie for the attention of the Jerusa-
lem Zoo's one male Syrian bear.
He already has two wives.
A second try at maintaining
beavers in Israel, after a pair
perished 14 years ago from pneu-
monia after exposure to cold
rain, is _prompted by the scien-
tific possibilltlei these animals
offer.
It is known that in Roman times
a substance called castoreum
(from Castor, Latin for beaver)
was extracted from dead beavers
and used as an aphrodisiac. Cas-
toreum was the dried form of the
sex attractant secreted by beavers,

Fisher Urges Qua lity Education

LOS ANGELES—Max M. Fisher
asserted in the Walter S. Hilborn
lecture of the Federation Council,
before an audience of 600, that
survival- is "today's fundamental
concern in the American Jewish
community. He called on commu-
nities to re-examine their obliga-
tions to Jewish day schools which,
he said, "hold one of the best an-
swers to furthering Jewish con-
tinuity."
Fisher said, "There is no ques-
tion that the Jewish day schools
have earned the right to our most
careful consideration of what can
be done to help." Other proposals
he made for improving and ex-
panding Jewish education was the
use of Jewish .summer camps for
educational pursuits, sponsorship
of extended stays in Israel for
older 'students and enlargement of
the study of Hebrew and related
subjects in high schools and col-
leges. Fisher added that there was
also a great need for into/vatted -
Jewish education for adults.
He said the concern for Jewish
survival in America was "not
Physical survival itself—which the

Science Teaching Progran
at Hebrew U. Features
Film Cassette Course

JERUSALEM — Where do the
facts- of science meet the visions
of cinema? One place is the cam-
era of Denis Segaller, a film mak-
er, a physicist and an educator
all rolled into one.
Segaller, an Englishman, has
been giving a 2%-month course at
the Israel Science Teaching Center
at the Hebrew University of Jeru-
salem teaching Israelis how to
make short films to be incorpor-
into progressive science cur-
ricula.
Israel is one of the few develop-
ing countries that has taken the
use .of film cassettes to heart. "I

at least by the Males, and 'Prof.
Shulov does not rule_out the possi-
bility that castoreum may be- in-
cluded in the treatment program
for the barren bears.
Like all the inhabitants of the
Biblical Zoo, the new additions
will be displayed with signs quot-
ing their biblical references. Bears
are mentioned in the Bible several
times.
The beaver—in modern Hebrew
bench, builder—is not mentioned
as such, but a reference in Psalms
68:31 to "rebuke the wild beast
of the reeds," thought by some to
mean the porcupine, is, in Prof.
Shulov's opinion, clearly beaver-
talk.
