The book is written In Yiddish and is the first of the Rabbi's many works to he written in the spoken Yid¬ dish language today. Rabhl Greenwald had devoted much time and effort to publish this latest book in order to re¬ veal to world Jewry historic facts of a country not so well known to the general public. The Rabbl dwells at length on both the Orthodox and Reform elements in Hungary, as well as the great. Jewish assimilation problem in that Balkan country In Southeastern Europe. • This book gives the history of the .tews in Hungary tor the past 1,000 years. It is interesting to note that Rabbi Greenwald had already authored 18 books In Hebrew dealing with various phases of Jewish history in Hungary. HI, latest book, however is the most complete, with all material ob¬ tained from archives, diaries, old documents and khllah books, especially from the government archives In Buda. The book sells at $250. NEW YORK (WNS)—Briga¬ dier General David Sarnoff, the humble boy trom the East Side of New York, who was a pioneer la the development of radio in America, and rose to the Presi¬ dency ot the Radio Corporation ot America believes that the world is at the turning of the ways and must make up its mind whether science is to be used for destructive or constructive pur¬ poses. In an article released thLs week, Mr. Sarnoff says: "As final victory in this sec¬ ond World War approaches, man, kind finds itself at a fork in in the road ot Time, where one route leads to peace and the other to a third world war—to life or death. Which shall it be? Man must make a choice. "Innovations in the domain of science have piled up so fast and so dramatically under the Im¬ petus of the present war that the public, and even some leaders, have not yet fully grasped their implications for the future of our nation and of mankind. "What will man do with these astounding facilities that science is creating? Will he use them tor beneficent purposes? Will he use ..them to make the workl a better and happier place, and to provide abundance every¬ where so that those who now lack the basic requirements tor comfortable living may secure them? Or will man prepare to ii.se these agencies for aggres¬ sion and destruction? No one knows. Yet no more important question faces the world. "Since man first roamed the earth Nature has challenged him to compete with her in sup¬ plying the basic necessities of lite. Across the centuries he has met the challenge to only a small degree. When through science mart creates an ever- increasing abundance ot food, clothing and .shelter he will have gained new triumphs over fa¬ mine, poverty and disease. He will reduce the causes of war and diminish the areas of con¬ flict. Prosperous nations, as General Eisenhower has observ¬ ed, are not war hungry, but a hungry nation will seek war in desperation. "Therefore as I see it, our great hope for world peace can best be advanced by achieving freedom trom want, through man's ingenuity iri atomic en¬ ergy, electronics, chemistry, phy¬ sics and the other science. All around us Nature inspires and offers the perfect model for science to emulate and duplicate, whether it be an artificial potato or a kernel of wheat, oil or cot¬ ton. Already by ingeniously producing artificial fibres man no longer is dependant upon the silkworm or the rubber tree; also he has plastics for wood and vitamins condensed Into tab¬ lets. He has produced and har nessed electricity, which as lightning defied him to put elect¬ rons to work. He has created artificial gas and now the sun WA.SHINCTO.V, I).

ATOMIC RESEARGH.HASTENING PEACE. OWES MUCH TO ITS JEWISH DISCOVERERS NEW YORK (WNS)—Jewish scientl.sts played a notewortliy part in the atomic research lead¬ ing to the discovery of the at omic Ixmib. It should be said however, that the Jewish scient- i.-its were at work with the thought that this atomic research would be used to advance man's happiness in peace. It was Hit¬ ler who first thought of turning it to destruction and the Allied governments, as Pregjjient Tru¬ man said in his address to the nation, had no alternative but to press forward to the same endi. Happily, the Allies sue ceeded — owing much of their success to Jewish scientists who had been driven out of Germany. The Scandinavian Jewish scient¬ ist, Dr. Niels Bohr, as well as a number of American Jews also helped. Leading the iist of Jewish con tributors to atomic research is Dr. Lise Meltner, a Jewish wo¬ man physicist, who was born in Vienna In 1870 and who slhce 1022 was a lecturer In Berlin University. In 1933, when the Nazis came to power in Ger¬ many, she was dismissed from the University on racial gi'ounds, but continued for some time her research for a method of releas¬ ing atomic energy at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Berlin, Just about the time when she completed her dLscovery, she was exiletl from Germany as a Jewess, She took her secret along with her denying it to the Nazis. ' Second on the list is Dr. Otto Robert Frisch, also born in Vienna, who was dismissed as a Jew trom the Hamburg Univer¬ sity in 10,')3. After Dr. Meltner (Continued on Page Four) dally dares him to bottle its tre¬ mendous heat for use at will. With that revolutionary accom¬ plishment it would not be neces sary to dig tor nature's black diamond—coal. I am sure that raw materials of endless variet¬ ies, from ores to paper, from clothing to food, will emerge from the test tube, and from out of the air Itself." A. A. JR.
