Bloomington, Ind. is the un-
likely site of a mini-boom in
Jewish literature, accord-
ing to a recent feature arti-
cle in the New York Times.
Indiana University Press
has embarked on an ambiti-
ous program of publishing
books of Jewish interest
that is quickly offsetting the
incongruency of the loca-

In the last two years, the
university has published a
number of books on subjects
ranging from the plight of
Jews during the Holocaust
to the image of Jews in Hol-
lywood films. An annual
publication on issues of con-

Scientific Studies Abound

TEL AVIV (JTA) — What
do hornets have in common
with astronauts? Prof.
Yaacov Yishai of Tel Aviv
University, one of the world
leading experts on hornets,
expects to find out this year.
He has arranged to place
a nest of hornets on a U.S.
space flight to see what ef-
fect weightlessness has on
their ability to reproduce
and grow. The purpose of
the experiment is to find out
why 50 percent of as-
tronauts suffer from space
sickness.
