Mapai Loses 5 Seats, Communists
Gain Two in Israel Knesset Votes

(Continued from Page 1)
Mapai, too, is probably disap-
pointed, since it looks as if
Mapam will have no more than
10 seats, at best only one seat
more than in the last Knesset.
Ahdut Avodah is certainly
disappointed. For months, it
had beat the drums on the
Lavon affair, and had hoped to
cash in on that issue in the
campaign. Instead, it will have
no more than the seven seats
it had in the old Parliament.
There was a slight, but inter-
esting, shift in the voting for
the religious lists. The more
conservative A g u d a h gained
slightly, at the expense of the
larger National Religious Party.
The Communists g a i n e d,
rather surprisingly, increasing
their total ballots from about
2.8 per cent in the last elections
to more than 4 Per cent this
year.

Mapai had lost much less

political experts had expect.
ed. The Liberals gained most
in the large cities. The larg-
est shifts to the Liberals was
shown in the balloting in Tel
Aviv.
Pending final tabulations,

which are not expected to alter
the situation materially, it
seems that the key to major de-
cisions in the next Knesset will
be in the hands of the six major
parties. Sixty per cent of the
seats will be controlled by
Mapai, National Religious Party,
Mapam and Ahdut Avodah—all
of which were represented in
the last cabinet.
The figures indicate that
Mapai will, once mare, have to
form a coalition government.
Though it• could obtain a com-
fortable majority by teaming up
with the Liberals and the re-
ligious parties, there is a great-
er possibility that the old coali-
tion of labor parties with the
National Religious group will
probably be revived to form the
next government.

On an unusually hot and
humid day, Israelis flocked to
the country's 2,600 polling
places Tuesday, using every
mode of transportation, from
camels to airplanes, or walk-
ing from their homes to the
nearest precinct, to cast their
votes. From 14 party lists, -
Israel selected the 120 mem-
bers of its next Knesset.

Voting was very heavy in
Jerusalem during the early
morning hour's, since weather
forecasts had predicted the ex-
traordinary high temperatures.
By noon, the crowds at the poll-
ing stations, had thinned down,
but • they were heavier again
later in the day.
The country's police forces
were fully • mobilized. ,Police
Chief Joseph Nahrnaias, with a
group of aides, set up head-
quarters in an airplane flying
over nearly the entire length
and breadth of Israel, but by
mid-afternoon there had been
