Morphine Equal
Found by Koor

TEL AVIV — About 65
kilograms of Thebaen has
been successfully extracted
from three tons of Papaver
bracteatum at Plantex Ltd.,
a member of the Koor
Chemicals Division.
This successful project
has proved that Thebaen is
an industrially feasible sub-
stitute for morphine. Until
now, morphine has been the
only known base for the
medically important pain-
killer, codein, but has also
been used to produce the
highly dangerous and addic-
tive heroin.
Thebaen is suitable not
only for codein extraction
but as the base for drugs
used in curing addiction.

len, Ilse Doner, Shirley

Isaac Bashevis Singer's Search for God
Denotes Author's Mystic, Occult Interests

Isaac Bashevis Singer is
the eminent mystic whose
works keep enchanting the
readers of his best-selling
stories of Jewish life in the
Old World. He is the master
delineator of the occult.

His role in describing the
mystic gains added empha-
sis in his newest work, "A
Little Boy in Search of God"

Translated from the Yid-
dish by Joseph Singer, "A
Little Boy in Search of God"
follows a tradition of intro-
ducing contemporary Yid-
dish literature to non-Jew-
ish readers.
It is not restricted to his
boyhood, the experiences
of which are in themselves
reminiscent of an age in
which the youth were con-
fronted by temptations
and by doubts. Singer
leads his story into his
young manhood, with the
response to the sexual
temptation, the chroni-
cling of a love affair with a
woman much older and the
inevitable agonized ap-
proach to the fulfillment of
the desires in an awakened
sexual passion.

The challenges come
early, in the years when his
father objected to his study
of the Kabala at too early an
age and the boy's defiance.

And there were many
other inner conflicts with
the attitudes of his favorite
authors, those he had read
in Yiddish and in Hebrew.

From Ira Moskowitz's Photos in Isaac Bashevis Singer's "A Little Boy in
Search of God"

The Zeitlins, Peretz, Bialik
and others; those who were
dedicated to faith and the
secularists who dominated
the literary scene.
Perhaps this is less a
search for God than it is a
testing of the forces who
competed for philosophical
dominance in the Jewish lit-
erary world.
As such this work gains
special significance. It deals
with a boyhood, among the
Jews and non-Jews of all
ages who are searching for
the realistic among the mys-
tics. The sex factor in the
god-search is a normal form

of Singer's writings and it
gains new emphasis in this

- The Singer story gains
significance from his co-
producer, Ira Moskowitz,
whose many paintings and
drawings in this book, many
in color, transform the Sing-
er-Moskowitz work into a
creation of art. As the ac-
companying reproductions
indicate, the Moskowitz pic-
tures which fill this book in
the scores may well make
"A Little Boy in Search of
God" a collector's item for
art lovers.
