Only 20 to 25 percent of the people of Britain are free from some forty of anti-Semitism, delegates to the psychological section of the British Association for the Advancement of Sciences were told today by Dr. H.J. Eysenck, noted British psychologist.

Dr. Eysenck said that anti-Semitism appears to be correlated to other social attitudes such as patriotism and religious feelings, Anti-Semites generally believe in the death penalty, flogging and that war is inherent to human nature. He said that he found conservatives more anti-Semitic than liberals and liberals more anti-Jewish than socialists. Asserting that anti-Semitism shows a lack of emotional maturity and stability, Dr. Eysenck said that much must be done before methods of combating anti-Semitism are developed.
