JERUSALEM — Substantial
progress was made in negotia-
tions n a new Coalition gov-
ernment which brought expecta-
tions Wednesday that Prime
Minister designate David Ben-
Gur4 on will present a new Coali-
tion Cabinet to the Knesset next
Monday.
The negotiations took place
at the bedside of Ben-Gurion,
who is confined with a fever at
his home. -
Map a i leaders met at his
home with officials of Mapam
and Achdut Avodah, the two
left-wing partners of Mapai in
the last coalition.
The indications were that if
Ben-Gurion is able to com-
plete negotiations with the
Progressive Party and the Na-
tional Religious Party he would
present a complete cabinet of
parties identical to those in the
old coalition.
If those talks remain un-
finished he would still be able
to present a three-party coali-

Blaustein in Talks With

UNITED NATIONS, N. Y.,

Equality for All
Religions Asked
in Italian Plea

ROME (JTA)—A memoran-
dum of the Italian- Evangelical
Churches, urging revision of the
Italian Penal Code to place all
religions on an equal level in
matters of offenses against re-
ligious activity, has been sub-
mitted to the Italian Ministry
' Classified ads bring fast results! of Justice.
The memorandum, prepared
by the federal council of the
Evangelical churches, submitted
to the Special Parliamentary
Committee for the Reform of
the Italian Penal Code, stated
that the suggestions and re-
quests "aim at harmonizing the
new code with constitutional

orandum was concerned with

Code, issued during Mussolini's

regime, which deal with punish-
Gift of Them All—
ments for offenses chiefly
against "the religion of the

The memorandum urged that
the articles, which establish
prison terms of one to three
years for offenses against "the
religion of the state," should
be changed to provide equal
punishment to "whoever pre-
vents or disturbs public re-

tion of Mapai and the two left-
wing parties, which would have
slender majority in the Fourth
Knesset.
Three portfolios would be
held open for the Progressives
and the Religious Party in the
second situation.
It was reported also that new
Mapai candidates for ministries
would be Moshe Dayan, former
Army Chief of Staff as Minister
Agriculture, replacing Kaddish
Luz, who has become Knesset
speaker; Mapai Secretary Gen-
eral Giora Josepthal as Minis-
ter of Labor, replacing Mor-
decai Namir, who has become
Mayor of Tel Aviv, and Abba
Eban, former Israel Ambassador
to the United Stattes as Min-
ister without Portfolio, replac-
ing Peretz Naphtali, who is
retiring for health reasons.
Earlier, the Agudath Israel
told the President that they
were forbidden to participate in
the government by their rab-
binical advisors, the Gdeloei
Hatorah, because their mini-
mum demands on religious mat-
ters had been opposed by the
Mapai.
Since the General Zionists
previously h a d indicated un-
readiness to join the projected
government, all indications
pointed to a renewal of the pre-
vious coalition as it was con-
stituted before the defection of
the National Religious Party on
the "who is a Jew" controversy.
It was reported that an agree-
ment with the Religious Party
was imminent, and that the two
leftist parties, Mapam and Ach-
dut Avodah, were prepared to
agree to regislation on collective
cabinet responsibility.
It was the refusal of the two-
left-wing parties to accept this

doctrine in their fight against
the Israel sale of arms to Ger-
many last summer which caused
Ben-Gui-ion to resign and end
the coalition.
The remaining holdout from
the last coalition was the Pro-
gressive Part y, which is de-

Cairo Pressure in
Inge Toft Case

JERUSALEM—Foreign Min-
istry sources Wednesday denied
reports from Cairo claiming
that Israel had agreed to the
return of the Danish freighter
Inge Toft after the Israel cargo
is unloaded at Port Said by
Egyptian authorities.
The ship has been detained
by Egypt since last May for
attempting to pass through the
Suez Canal.
Foreign Ministry sources in-
dicated that the reports of
Israel's capitulation in the mat-
ter were circulated by Cairo
to prepare the ground for the
visit to Copenhagen next week
of Egyptian Foreign Minister
Mahmound Fawzi who will try
to persuade the Danish Govern-
ment to order the captain of
the Inge Toft to release the
cargo to Egyptian authorities
and return the vessel to the
Mediterranean.

would be acceptable to the
