Foreign Crews, Histadrut
Counter El Al Pilot Strike

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire to
The Jewish News)

TEL AVIV—Officials of the
struck El Al Israel National
Airlines announced plans Wed-
nesday to operate its Britannias
with foreign crews as the dead-
lock entered its sixth day with-
out any indications of a solu-
El Al ground workers and
Histadrut, Israel's Labor Fed-
eration, said they would help
in the operation of airliners
handled by foreign crews.
Histadrut announced it had
received a cable from the Inter-
national Pilots Association re-
fusing support to the striking
aircrews. It was regarded here
as a green light for operation
by foreign crews.
The airline meanwhile an-
nounced a temporary timetable
operated by foreign companies,
most of which use special or
chartered planes. The new time-
table was set for 11 days, start-
ing. Wednesday on all regular
El Al flights. -
The Israel Cabinet empowered
Minister of Transport Yitzhak
Ben - Aharon to invoke emer-
gency regulations against El Al
airmen now overseas:
.The- striking crews may, un-
der the emergency regulations,
be ordered by the Minister of
Transport to return immediately
as conscriptees for national
service under pain of severe
The Histadrut also issued a
statement declaring that. it
would not deal with the strik-
ers unless they resume work.
The Israeli press, in leading
articles, called upon the strik-
• ers to return to work in order
to enable quiet negotiations of
their claims. However, repre-
: senta•tive,s of the strikers stated
that "our claims are already
• pending nine months."
Ephrairn Ben-Artzi, El Al's
managing director, told the
press today that while the man-
agement was prepared to meet
almost all of the 11 demands
of the strikers, which include
increased paid vacation and
free trips for children of per-
' sonnel, he could not agree to
' the demand of wage increases
which, he said, was "fantastic
in Israel's present reality."
Various efforts made Tuesday

at mediation were made fruit-
less by the uncompromising po-
sition of the strikers, who re-
portedly brought up new de-
mands, such as one for the
dismissal of all nonstriking El
Al workers, including five flight
inspectors, and the return to
Israel of 45 crews stranded in
Europe and the United States
by the walkout.
A new attempt by Air Force
Commander Ezer Weizmann to
get the strikers back on the job
was rejected, as was the sugges-
tion for the establishment of
a committee with a high rank-
ing air force officer as chair-
man, to investigate the claims
of the strikers, the principal
one of which is demand for
higher pay which the airline
says is impossible.
Flight schedules at Lydda
Airport were reported normal
Wednesday, with planes arriv-
ing and departing on schedule.

Election of Chief Rabbis
Becomes Chaos in Israel

chaotic situation which has de-
veloped over the election of new
Chief Rabbis for Israel took an
unusual turn this week when
the chairman of the nomina-

phase of the dispute had been
directed to a secular authority,
the Israel Attorney General, for
Rabbi Yehudah Leib Maimon,
the chairman, made the an-
nouncement at a meeting of the

named by Rabbi Yaacov To-
ledano's Ministry for Reli-
gious Affairs were present,
as was Rabbi Amram Abura-
via, an appointee of the
Supreme Religious Council
whose accreditation had been
withdrawn by the Council be-
cause he ignored a directive
to boycott last week's inaugu-
ral meeting of the nomina-
tions board.
The board appealed for co-
operation of all factions to en-
sure a "fair and proper atmo-
sphere" for the election of an
Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi and a
Sephardi Chief Rabbi.
The election had been sched-
uled last week for Aug. 26
after months of maneuvering
and squabbling. The Ashkenazi
Chief Rabbi's post has been
vacant since the death a year
ago of Rabbi Isaac Haley' Her-
