"In an age of egali-
tarianism," Dr. Cohen
was surprised to find that
boys are more likely than
girls to attend Jewish
schools, especially at age 16-
17. Boys are also more likely
to receive a more intensive
Jewish education, with more
boys in afternoon Jewish
programs and more girls in
Sunday-only programs. He
sees this as a reflection of
parental values.
Dr. Cohen also found that
the poor and near-poor do
not use the day schools,
despite available scholar-
ships. The interviewers last
fall found one of every eight
Jewish families with chil-
dren had household incomes
under $30,000 a year. Many

"Twice as many poor and
near-poor Jewish kids will
never go to Jewish schools,"
Dr. Cohen said. "And if they
go, it will not be to the day
schools. Even though there
is a growing interest in day
schools, cost is a factor."
The researchers found a
larger number of young
children in the day schools.

"This reflects Hillel Day

New York (JTA) - A
prominent English in-
vestment bank founded by
emigre German Jews has
pulled out of purchasing
shares in I.G. Farben, the
German company notorious
for having helped supply the
gas used at Auschwitz.
The turnabout is credited
to pressure from British
Jewish groups, particularly
the European office of the
Simon Wiesenthal Center,
following disclosure about
the stock purchase by the
S.G. Warburg bank in the
July 29 edition of the Sun-
day Times of London.
"Four non-Jewish
employees were having some
fun and invested in Farben
without the official O.K. of
company heads," said
Shimon Samuels, European
director of the Wiesenthal
Center, who spoke with
Warburg spokesmen.
S.G. Warburg had re-
portedly just bought a
"significant stake" in
Farben, as had a number of
other British banking
houses who thought that
with the reunification of the
Germanys, the company will
have claim to more than $4
billion in assets, which had
been seized by East Ger-
many after the war.
The large-scale buying
raised the share value of
Farben stock from 20 to 30
Deutschmarks, or from

about $12.50 to nearly
$19.00 per share.
The East German shares of
Farben have been put on
sale as East and West Ger-
many make final plans to
unite. The two Germanys
unified their currency and
economic systems on July 1.
Farben, the largest in-
dustrial company in the
world at the onset of World
War II, was one of the most
powerful supporters of the
Nazi regime. Its rubber fac-
tories were staffed by the SS
and factory labor was sup-
plied by the nearby
Auschwitz concentration
Some 25,000 slave laborers
lost their lives in this work.
Farben was also involved
in share holding of the firms
that produced Zyklon B gas,
and in taking over Jewish-
owned businesses.
Farben officials were later
tried at Nuremberg for war
crimes. Eleven were ac-
After the war, the com-
pany was divided first by
East and West Germany.
The four Western allies
divided up the West German
half of the company, leaving
only a "shell" for the pur-
poses of paying reparations
to its Jewish slave laborers.
Such was not the case in
East Germany, however,
which refused to accept joint
