have found a bacteria that
will break down oil slicks in
the world's waters into a
useful protein.

they had found a bacteria
that feeds on oil.

Rosenburg and Gutnick
said the discharged water
was broken down into 60 per
cent protein and 40 per cent
blended oil — a mixture of
water and microscopic par-
ticles "that will never co-
agulate into a slick."

Rosenburg said the proc-
essed ballast water from a
200,000-ton freighter could
provide 300 tons of protein
that could be used for bulk
animal feed. He added that
200 tons of blended oil could
be recycled.

President's Prize

JERUSALEM — Shaare
Zedck Hospital marked its
100th anniversary with a
ceremony at city hall, hell
under the
patronage
of
Mayor Teddy Kollek.
The original founders' com-
mittee was organized by
members of the Jewish com-
munities of Frankfurt am
Main and Any,erdarrt.
The hospital actually
opened in 1902, after an in-
terval of some years while
the committee maintained
the Wallach Clinic in the
City. Permission to build
Shaare Zedek outside the
Old City walls was granted
following the intervention of
the German Kaiser with the
Ottoman authorities.
Shaare Zedek contributed
to raising the level of health
services in Jerusalem and
gained distinction by combat-
ing epidemiological diseases.
It opened and maintained
Jerusalem's first pavilion for
contagious diseases and dur-
ing the War of Independence
it was the only surgical hos-
pital in Jerusalem not cut off
by enemy forces. In 1967 it
was a front-line military hos-
pital once again, and today
takes a disproportionate
share of Jerusalem's emer-
gency admissions.
In recent years it has ini-
tiated a number of innovative
community health programs.
These latter are slated for
considerable expansion on
completion of the new medi-
cal center, a $20,000,000, 500-
bed community health facil-
ity, now under construction

The 1972 Israel President's
Prize for Poetry was given
to a recent Russian immi-
grant, Itzhak Meir of Vilna,
for his hook "A Draw with
Death" originally written in
Lithuanian.

NEW YORK—The devalu-
ation of the dollar has made
it necessary for the Joint
Distribution Committee to
consider cutting back sharply
its worldwide refugee and
welfare programs, Edward
Ginsberg, JDC chairman,
reported at a meeting of the
JDC administration commit-
tee.
Ginsberg pointed out that
the devaluation affects the
currencies of all countries in
which JDC conducts pro-
grams, except Israel and
Yugoslavia. He noted that
since the Israeli pound is
geared to the American dol-
lar, JDC's health, welfare
and education programs
there should not be substan-
tially affected.

Knowledge is power only
when hitched to the right
theory.
