EARNEST A. HOOTON OFFERS CURE FOR "JEWISH PROBLEM"

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Earnest Albert Hooton, professor of Anthropology, Curator of Somatology, and member of the faculty of the Peabody Museum, suggested in Collier's magazine today that assimilation of the Jewish minorities by intermarriage is the only solution of the "Jewish problem."

He declared that persecution of the Jews is the chief cause for the high average intelligence of the Jewish people and the frequency with which they produce geniuses and added:

"There is enough ability concentrated in the few millions of Jews to raise the general average considerably if it were decimated by intermixture. I do not know that they would be willing to do it, but, if they did, they would confer a great genetic boon upon mankind and at the same time would solve their own problem."
