development of novel
methods of analysis of
gene structure and func-

has focused on the genes
which encode for the
structure of antibodies,
the body's main defender
against infection.

award of $35,000.

Article Leads to Family Reunion

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Two cousins, only one of
whom knew of the other's
existence, met for the first
time last month, thanks to a
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
news story.
Ruth Lang, of East
Brunswick, N.J. read the
article about Morris Ghit-
zis, an 88-year-old Chicago
resident who writes for a
Yiddish newspaper in the
Soviet Union, in the April
22 edition of the Jewish
Journal of Raritan Valley.
Lang recognized Ghitzig,
a former pharmacist who is
the only published Ameri-
can Yiddish author in the
USSR, as her father's first
cousin.
"Years ago my father
told me he had a cousin in
Chicago," Lang later told
the Journal, "but I had no
idea he was alive, nor did
I know that he wrote. I
immediately called my
daughter who lives in
Chicago and had her look
up the name Ghitzid in
the telephone book. Sure
enough, not only was his
name listed, but he only
lived five minutes away

from where she lives,"
she said.
Ghitzis and his wife
Monya were totally un-
aware of this new branch of
the family. "Because the
name Ghitzis is hard to spell
and even harder to pro-
nounce," explained Lang,
"my father changed his
name to Glitzer when he
came to America in 1904.

Mexico Marks
Kafka Centenary

MEXICO CITY (JTA) —
The centenary of the birth of
Franz Kafka, the Czech-
Jewish writer, will be
marked here under the offi-
cial patronage of the Mexi-
can Institute of Fine Arts
this month. Two public cel-
ebrations will be held with
the participation of Mexi-
can writers and intellectu-
als. A bust of Kafka will be
unveiled at the library of
Mexico's National Univer-
sity.

"Ghitzis' two brothers
changed their name to Ged-
des when they came over in
1927. Because of these
name changes, Morris did
not know what happened to
the rest of his family," she
said.
"The reunion was beauti-
ful," Lang told the Journal.
"The minute I saw (Ghitzis),
I knew he had to be related.
He had the striking brown-
rimmed blue eyes so char-
acteristic of our family."

TEL AVIV (ZINS) —
Every former Israeli Minis-
ter of Defense has vacated
his office under less than
happy circumstances, the
Israeli press observes.
The first was David
Ben-Gurion who stepped
down under stormy condi-
tions. After him came
Pinhas Lavon who had. to
resign under a cloud be-
cause of the notorious "La-
von Affair."
The third Defense Minis-
ter, Prime Minister Levi
Eshkol, was driven out by
popular demonstrations on
the eve of the Six-Day War .
demanding his replacement
by Moshe Dayan. Ezer
Weizman also ended his te-
nure to the accompaniment
of slamming doors.
Ariel Sharon had less
than an honorable circum-
stance on his resignation.

TEL AVIV (JTA) — A
Katyusha rocket was fired
from the Beaufort Castle
area in south Lebanon on
Tuesday, apparently aimed
at Israel, but it fell short of
its mark. A military
spokesman said the rocket
exploded near the Lebanese
border village of Klea with-
out causing casualties or
damage.
The Beaufort Castle, the
ruins of a Crusaders' stron-
ghold, had been one of the
Palestine Liberation
Organization's principal
bases in south Lebanon
until it was captured by Is-
raeli forces in the early
stages of the war in Leba-
non last summer.
