JERUSALEM (JTA)—The Is-
rael government is prepared to
ease some of the restrictions in
the military government in bor-
der areas inhabited by Israeli
Arabs. but will not countenance
complete abolition of the mili-
tary rule in those areas, Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion re-
portedly asserted this week.
Ben-Gurion met with repre-
sentatives of the parties that
are members of his coalition
government, as well as with
members of the opposition par-
ties—except the Communists—
in an apparent effort to head
off five bills on the issue of
military government scheduled
to come up before the Knesset
next week.
Details of the discussion were
considered secret security af-
fairs, but it was known that the
experts spelled out to the meet-
ing participants the reasons for
the need to continue the mili-
tary ,government.
It was understood that
Ben-Gurion's appeal for a
non-partisan stand on the is-
sue made no impact on some
of the party leaders attend-
ing the meeting. It was feared
that, unless the goiernment
agrees to more far-reaching
modifications than it has pro-
posed, the dispute may lead
to a cabinet crisis.
Achdut Avoda, one of the
parties represented in the co-
alition, reserved its right, when
it entered the government to
drop its "collective responsi-
bility" agreement when and if
this problem of the military
rule in Arab zones should come
up for discussion.
Under the "collective respon-
sibility" principal agreed to by
the coalition partners, all mem-
bers of the coalition must abide
WT cabinet decisions — unless
they are given permission to

Israel Technion Receives
Closed-Circuit TV System
Technion Israel Institute of
Technology, the largest engi-
neering university in the Mid-
dle East, will soon install an ed-
ucational closed-circuit televi-
sion system, presented as a gift
by General Precision, Inc., GPL'
Division, of Pleasantville, N.Y.
The television system will
enable an enlarged .number of
students to view technical ex-
periments being conducted in
a small laboratory space, and
will also make it possible for
visiting lecturers and professors
to address large numbers of
students simultaneously. many
of whom are scattered in var-
ious buildings located on the
300-acre campus.

oppose a government decision.
Earlier in the week, the
Prime Minister was question-
ed in the Knesset about an
interview in the Parisian
newspaper Le Figaro, in
which he had been quoted as
saying '1 that "Israeli Arabs
prefer that Israel be an Arab
state, and if given an oppor-
tunity, they would support
the destruction of Israel."
The question was put by
Moshe Carmel, a member of
Achdut Avodah. Ben - Gurion
was asked whether he desired
to correct the report in Le
Figaro and what the political
aim of such a statement was—
if, he had made the statemen
The Prime Minister, making n
reference to the specific quot
tion attributed to him, said th
he was not responsible for pres
reports in his name, except
those which he had personally
submitted and signed.
Addressing a meeting in Tel
Aviv, Deputy Defense Minister
Shimon Peres said that Israel's
Arab population can be divided
in three categories: the indif-
ferently resigned; the hostile
resigned; the active hostile. Is-
rael, he said, is vitally concern-
ed as to which of _ these ele-
ments will dominate the Arab
community. "We are out to pre-
vent their domination by the
extremists by public pressure
or by terror, as happened in Al-
geria," he added.
Four Arab members of Israel's

parliament—members of Mapai-
affiliated par ties — expressed
"complete satisfaction" at the
close of a lengthy conference
with Prime Minister David Ben-
Gurion Monday with the Priine
Minister's promise of 'the widest
possible easing of military gov-
ernment in Arab populate •
tions of Israel.
The four Ara
•uties who
met with the
e Minister on
the issue
is invitation said
that w
opposing views had
been
dressed during the two-
and, alf hours, the "frank s-
c
on" gave hope for a "b
r
re."
The Prime Minister w
e erstood to have told th
P's that on the agreed
tion that military gov nment
was essential for secu y rea-
sons he wanted them to offer
uggestions for elimination of
some aspects of militar
tr•ey consid
neces-
sary.
He emphasized that he was
confident that most Israeli
Arabs were not receptive to
inciting propaganda coming
from neighboring Arab coun-
tries but that "certain ele-
ments" existed among the
Israel Arabs which "com-
pelled" watchfulness.
Discussions included an agree-
ment to hold further talks on
development of education, agri-
culture and ;other services of
education, agriculture and other
services in the Arab populated
areas.

BRUSSELS (JTA)—Requests
that the European Economic
Community give "favorable con-
sideration" to the linking of Is-
rael to the European Common
Market were made here by a
number of speakers at. the two-
