Jewish Inventors

BY DAVID SCHWARTZ

(Copyright 1975, JTA,

Inc.)

A little invention can
change the course of his-
tory. One day a young fel-
low from Connecticut de-
cided to go south. Maybe he
could get a job teaching
there.
So he went to Georgia,
where he heard some farm-
ers talking about the diffi-
culty of separating the cot-
ton seed from the fiber. This
young fellow put his mind
to work and developed the
cotton gin and Eli Whitney's
invention changed the whole
course of American history.
Probably next to the cot-
ton gin, the invention which
has had the most important
effect on American life is
the automobile. Detroit is
the capital of the automo-
bile world and the editor of
the Detroit Jewish News,
Philip Slomovitz, comes
forth with a somewhat star-
tling headline, to wit: "Jew
Invents Auto but None in
Industry."

We're big on
Mitzvabs.
Bar and Bas.

We're also big on weddings,
reunions, engagement parties,
anniversaries, banquets and
receptions. For up to 860 of
you. For more information, call
David George, Director of
Catering, 559-6500.

Jews, says the editor,
have played an insignifi-
cant part in the auto in-
dustry despite the fact that
the inventor of the auto-
mobile was Siegfried Mar-
cus, an Austrian Jew.

The first "Marcus car" a
it was called, writes Slomov
itz, was in operation in 186 4
— during the period of th e
American Civil War. It wa
the first car run by gasoline
which was then very expen
sive indeed. It had to b e
bought in drug stores.
Marcus was not much of a
businessman. When he wa
asked, we are told, to go t 0
Blanske to perfect his inve n
tion, he refused, bein
wholly satisfied that he had
solved the technical prob
lems. He was not intereste d
in making money. He wa s
an inventive genius, had in
vented telegraph relays, an
electric lamp, a microphone;
he was a kind of Jewish
Edison.
Jews have not been incon-
spicuous in invention. When
we think of flying, we natu-
rally think of the Wright
brothers, but before them
there were the two Jewish
brothers — Otto and Gus-
tave Lilienthal of Germany.
Gustave was killed in an air
accident.

Most inventions are the
cumulative product of a
number of inventors. Quite
often different people at the
same time fall upon similar
ideas.
Little is known of Elisha
Gray, for instance, but he
filed his application for a
patent on the telephone on
the same day as Alexander
Graham Bell, but the court
decided Bell was ahead of
him by a few hours. A Jew,
Philip Riess of Germany,
about the same time also in-
vented some kind of tele-
phone.
In radio, the work of the
Jewish. Heinrich Herz is of
prime importance. The Her-
zian waves are named after
him. He first proved the ex-
istence of the radio waves.

The chief thrust of Slo-
movitz's article is the very
picayune part the Jews
play in the auto industry.
He quotes Fortune Maga-
zine, saying that of the 100
executives there is not a
single Jew.

This, of course, is not a
happy thought, but it could
be worse. Remember the
days of Henry Ford, the
elder, when his Dearborn
Independent seemed to be
trying to sell anti-Semitism
more than cars.
His son, Edsel, we are
glad to say, protested and
finally Ford himself, when
one year his business
showed a loss, went to see
Louis Marshall of the Amer-
ican Jewish Committee and
signed a statement asking
forgiveness.
