ARAD, Israel—Twenty thou-
sand tons of rock and earth
were exploded in the largest
single operation of its kind ever
undertaken in this countr y,
when Jewish National Fund la-
borers cleared the last stretch
of the new road connecting the
future town of Arad with the
Dead Sea shore and Sedom, site
of the most important minerals
plant in Israel.
The road, now being con-
structed by the JNF, is 18 km
long and up to 14 metres wide.
To build it, over one million
tons of rock were cleared on a
slope ranging from 600 metres
above sea level to 400 ms be-
low sea level — the lowest spot
on earth — at the Dead Sea.
These figures were given by
Shimon Ben Shemesh, director-
general of the Land Develop-
ment Authority.
The new road shortens the
distance between the Dead Sea
Works and the center of the
country by nearly 40 km, thus
making the haulage of potash,
bromide and other Dead Sea
products. to internal and ex-
port markets cheaper and more
efficient.
Ben Shemesh added that the
Arad - Sedom road constituted
the most difficult stretch of the
great new highway, now under
construction, connecting Eilat
through Sedom with the center
of the country; the JNF has
been asked by the Minister of
Labor, Mr. Yigal Alon, to take
upon itself this complicated
task.
As the quick completion of
the highway is of utmost impor-
tance to Israel's economic prog-
ress, the JNF at present car-
ries out the work with two sep-
arate team s, one progressing
from Arad downwards and the
other working from the Dead
Sea upwards in the direction of
Arad. In addition, two daily
shifts have been introduced in
both teams.

In Memoriam'

SAMUEL WEISMAN — DE-
PARTED SIX YEARS AGO
I see you gaze thru the win-
dow pane
So proud of your new domain,
Yet it seems so very long ago,
How far—away—it seems!
For life is a bridge of many
hours
And time lingers to repeat
Till memory grows more real
than the actual day
And it's not so far away—
nor even long ago.
It's just today!
(The family misses a fine
brother-in-law.)
