A review of significant
trends in the life of Israel,
with special reference to medi-
cal problems, is presented in
the 32nd anniversary issue of
the Hebrew Medical Journal
edited by Dr. Moses Einhorn,
of New York.
In dealing with Israel's
health chart, Dr. Einhorn points
at the dramatic improvement
in the incidence of infectious
diseases which plagued the
State at the height of mass
immigration between 1949-
1951. , the steady improvement
in the incidence of tubercu-
losis, syphilis and infantile
paralysis, as well as the higher
incidence of coronary diseases
among Israelis born in Europe
and America as compared with
those born is Asia and Africa.
There is a multiplicity of
organizations in charge of hos-
pitals ranging from the Gov-
ernment of Israel to the Gen-
eral Sick Fund, Malben, Ha-
dassah, and to those under
private ownership. But there
is also in evidence consider-
able collaboration and team
work between the various au-
thorities.
Female mental patients out-
number males. The percentage
of mental patients born in East-
ern Europe is larger than that
of any other group (44 per
cent). -
Native born Israelis, who
constitute a third of the gen-
eral population, comprise only
15.2 per cent of the mental
cases. Moreover, those who
have settled in Israel since
1949, constitute a large ma-
jority of schizophrenia and
manic depressive cases. The
author relates these phenome-
na to the Nazi upheaval.

Tribute is paid to the Israel
Health Insurance System which
is based on a voluntary and
cooperative basis. The General
Workers Sick Fund affiliated
with the Histadrut, had a mem-
bership of 250,012, including
dependents, in 1946. In 1957
membership rose to 1,183,750,
a figure which covers more
than half of the entire popula-
tion. Smaller sick funds are
also in operation.
This issue of the Hebrew
Medical Journal contains also
a report on the demography
of the Israel physicians by H.
S. Halevi, assistant director
general of the Ministry of
Health. Israel has the high-
est ratio of physicians in the
world: one physician per 446
inhabitants.
There is a marked shortage
of young doctors. The propor-
tion of middle-aged and elderly
physicians is high. About 25
per cent of Israeli doctors are
women'
The section "Medicine and
Religion" presents a revealing
study on the attitude of Jew-
ish Law towards human pain
by Dr Immanuel Jacobovits, the
former Chief Rabbi of Ireland.
The Hebrew Medical Jour-
nal is a bi-lingual medical
publication which appears
semi-annually, and also in an
annual Israel Edition.

JERUSALEM, (JTA)—Many
thousands of Arab refugees in
Lebanon and Jordan as well as
in Europe, are ready to give up
immediately any claims for
abandoned property in Israel,
if compensated in accordance
with the 1948 value of the prop-
erty, Greek Catholic Archbishop
George Hakkim declared here
this week. The Cairo-born Chris-
tian dignitary is the spiritual
head of the 20,000 Christian
Arabs in Israel.
Archbishop Hakkim made his
statement in an exclusive inter-
view with the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency. He had just
returned from an extensive tour
of Arab countries and of Eur-
ope, during which he main-
tamed close contact with wide
circles of Arabs.
The Archbishop expressed
confidence in his evaluation of
personal talks with leaders of
Christian and Moslem Arab
refugees during this recent
visit, as well as during previous

visits to Arab countries. He conditional on the consent of
said that at least some of the the Arab countries which
Arab governments, while they would refuse to give such form-
would not say so publicly, al consent. Instead of making

sation in exchange for giving should insist only that refugees
