By BEN GALLOB

Replies to a questionnaire
distributed to some non-

editor to conclude that
non-JOAFish students have
many misconceptions about
Jews based not on hatred
but on "a general lack of
education."

H.U. Scientists
Develop Malaria
Detection Method

JERUSALEM — Scien-
tists at the Hebrew Univer-
sity of Jerusalem Faculty of
Medicine have developed a
new technique for detecting
the presence of malarial
parasites in infected blood.
This test, which is a
radioimmunoassay, is suit-
able for large-scale
epidemiological investiga-
tions.
Malaria is one of the most
widespread diseases of
mankind, affecting hun-
dreds of millions of people
mainly in tropical coun-
tries. The increased resis-
tance of the parasites to an-
timalarial drugs, and of the
mosquito vectors to insec-
ticides, are aggravating fac-
tors contributing to the pre-
valence and further spread
of the disease.
The radioimmunoassay
was developed by Dr. Dov
Sulitzeanu of the Hebrew
University's Lautenberg
Center for General and
Tumor Immunology, Dr .
Dan Spira of the Univer-
sity's Kuvin Center for the
Study of Infectious and
Tropical Diseases, Mrs.
Hava Avraham, a doctoral
student, and their col-
leagues. It was tested last
month under field condi-
tions in Thailand, in collab-
oration with a group of sci-
entists at the Faculty of
Tropical Medicine, Mahidol
University, Bangkok.

Indian to Mark
Bar Mitzva
in Israel?

TEL AVIV (JTA) — El Al
is awaiting a reply from the
Sioux nation to its invita-
tion to one of its future
chiefs to come to Israel to
celebrate his Bar Mitzva in
five years.
The Israel national air-
line extended its invitation
when it heard that the
mother of eight-year-old
Little Eagle Bordeaux,
great-grandson of Chief
Crazy Horse who defeated
Custer at the Battle of Little
Big Horn in 1876, was a
Jewess, originally from
Chicago.
' When she married the in-
cumbent tribal chief, she
moved with him to an In-
dian reservation in the
southwestern states.

Herz! Camp
Seeks Alumni,

MINNEAPOLIS — The
Herzl Camp Association is
seeking the names and ad-
dresses of past campers and
staff in order to form an
alumni association and plan
a reunion.

55426

students responded to the
questionnaire, declaring
that while the number was
"not large," those respond-
ing were from Catholic and
Protestant backgrounds,
with some Moslems. Weiner
did not use any numbers,
only percentages.
The questionnaire dealt
with such topics as Jewish
population, Jewish customs
and the Holocaust. The
editor reported that the an-
swers revealed "some mis-
conceptions" and "much
curiosity" about Jews.
The editor reported
that some of the students
surveyed had known no
Jews before coming to
Cornell while some
"knew as many as 50."

Some were completely
ignorant about Judaism
before attending Cornell,
Weiner added.
The survey findings indi-
cated that "the most obvious
lack- of knowledge" was in
the area of religion. Many
students simply ignored
questions in the survey on
Judaism while some who
did respond thought that
Judaism was based on a be-
lief that "Christ has yet to
come to this world."
