South African Jew Discovers Process for Extraction of Pure Salt from Sea Water

A 27-year-old Jewish scholar of Krugersdorp, in the Transvaal, was today revealed as the discovorer of a process for the extraction of pure salt and other products from sea water.

Woolf Lonstein, a graduate of Witwatersrand University, developed the process four years ago in a kitchen laboratory. The discovery came after two years of experimentation, but Mr. Lonstein was forced to wait three years before he was granted a patent by Britain. He is currently investigating problems connected with Diesel engine combustion at Witwatersrand University.
