TEST TUBE BABY
BORN AT HADASSAH

Jeimsalem . . . Test-tube
babies are no longer a new
study, but each account is
dramatic for two reasons: 1.
The circumstances requir-
ing this procedure which
represents a last-ditch ef-
fort to have a baby, and 2.
The skill required by the
hospital team in carryout
out the delicate steps from
conception to birth.
The latest "medical
triumph" took place here at
the Hadassah-Hebrew Uni-
versity Medical Center on
Tuesday, November 1 when
a baby girl, weighing 2.72K,
almost six pounds, was born
to a 35-year-old woman as a
result of the use of in vitro
fertilization of the human
egg and subsequent trans-
fer of the growing embryo to
the uterus of the mother.
The mother was born - in
Germany and immigrated
to Israel in 1949, where she
subsequently met and mar-
ried a Russian immigrant.
The baby is in excellent
condition and peifectly
normal.

U.S. SECRETARY
HECKLER VISITS
HADASSAH HOSPITAL
IN JERUSALEM

U.S. Secretary of Health
and Human Resources,
Margaret Heckler, recently
visited the Hadassah Hospi-
tal on Mt. Scopus. This is
the first visit of a cabinet
member to Hadassah's
Mount Scopus Hospital.
Mrs. Heckler was taken
by Dr. Samuel Penchas on
an inspection of the Medical
Center which included vis-
its to the Intensive Care
Neo-Natal Unit, the Re-
habilitation Medicine De-
partment and the under-
ground hospital which is
equipped and prepared for
all emergencies.

JERUSALEM — Yehudit Tal, 32-year-old mother of two and
an accountant, whose sight was restored after two years of
blindness. A corneal graft performed by Dr. Hanan Zauber-
man, head of the Ophthamology Department of the
Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center, by means of a
special technique, restored 20:20 vision in her right eye.
Yehudit hopes that another cornea — for her left eye — will
become available.

HADASSAH LAUNCHES
50TH ANNIVERSARY
YEAR OF YOUTH ALIYAH

Fifty years ago a youth
rescue movement was
begun in Germany to bring
Jewish youth to safe haven
in Jewish Palestine. Hen-
rietta Szold, nearly 70 years
old, a Biblical scholar,
teacher, and social-worker
who had founded Hadassah
22 years earlier and was
planning to return home to
her native Baltimore, was
persuaded to stay on as di-
rector of Youth Aliyah.
This rehabilitation and
education movement with
its mix of academic, voca-
tional, cultural and ideolog-
ical goals, and its innova-
tive psychological testing
and teaching methods, and
emphasis on social de-
velopment and peer rela-
tionships in residential set-
tings — later extended to
all-day centers — became a
pilot program for educators,
youth workers and educa-
tional psychologists
throughout the world. It

laid the groundwork for
many of the youth programs
in the United Nations serv-
ice agencies. Hadassah has
been the largest contributor
to youth aliyah among all
the many organizations
who work for youth aliyah.
