JERUSALEM—The Israel par-
liament endorsed Wednesday
government plans for an experi-
mental educational television
system by a vote of 55 to 43.
Approval of the bill, voting
on which was postponed five
times because the government
could not muster a Knesset ma-
jority, was made possible only
by cabinet invoking of the sel-
lective responsibility rule which
obligates all coalition member
parties to support a proposal.
The Herut, Liberal, Mapam
and Agudat Israel. parties all
voted against the measure. The
vote followed conclusion of de-
bate by Education Minister Abba
Eban in which he anounced that
educational television would be
provided alSo to the state-sup-
ported religious schools which
maintain a separate curriculum.
He urged the house not to link
the question with general tele-
vision, pro or con, and to con-
fine itself to the instructional
aspect of the bill which he said
was vitally need to promote Is-
rael's educational facilities.

He cited the unqualified suc-
cess of educational television
systems in many countries and
said there was a 'wealth of ex-
perience already ,74.arnered, to-
gether with recommendations of
noted educators and experts,
1,‘,/!3',.ch warranted its introduction
in Israel.
Asserting that educational TV
would be a particular boon in
Israel's rural areas, Eban paid
tribute to the Rothschild Memo-
rial Trust which has agreed to
finande the experimental pro-
grams. He said the Rothschilds
were prepared • to contribute
technical know-how, scientific ex-
perience and a budget. He added
that the system would be tested
experimentally for two or three
years and then the government
and the Knesset would recon-
sider the experiment.
The Liberals, Herut, and Ma-
pam submitted a joint motion
asking deferment of the issue
until a national television author-
ity was set up to assure inde-
pendence of the television sys-
tem from government control.

Nasser's Impunity in Yemen
'Astonishes' Golda Meir

JERUSALEM, (JTA) — Mrs.
Golda Meir, Israel's Foreign
Minister, said here she. was
"profoundly astonished" over
the way the world "reconciles
itself unprotestingly" to Egyp-
tian President Nasser's "latest
intervention in Yemen."
Addressing the parliament
on her Ministry's proposed
40,500,000 - pound ($13,500,000)
budget for the coming year,
Mrs. Meir called the Egyptian
action "this brazen violation of
the United Nations Charter and
principles of international law."
She added that she simply
could not comprehend "the
thinking of those 'experts' who
see in Nasser an 'anchor of
steadiness a n d moderation'
when he is in fact the main
instrument of unrest in the
Middle East."
She said I s r a e l wanted
peace and would spare no
efforts to bring it nearer.

But, as long as the Arabs
persist in their avowed aim
of exterminating Israel and
arming themselves for that
purpose, she declared, "we
shall equally do everything
in our power to strengthen
our State, within and fortify
it against dangers from with-
out."
She indicated the likelihood
of further weapons aid from
the democratic countries with
the comment that "it would be
no surprise if the world draws
matter-of-fact conclusions from
Nasser's declarations that he
has the means to hit with mis-
siles any spot south of Beirut
and it therefore provided the
destined victim with the means
of defending its life and as-
sets."
She warned Syria not to tax
Israel's patience with attacks
on Israeli frontier settlements,
and stressed Israel's continued
"firm links" with the United
vis ■ laminams ■ ami States.

"on a substantial scale." Re-

ties also argued that there was
"no doubt" that the educational
TV would pave the way for gen-
eral television. The joint motion
was defeated 44 to 53.
Agudat Israel objected to any
kind of television on moral and
religious grounds. A separate
Communist motion stated that
under existing conditions there
were no guarantees that the pro-
p o s e d educational television
project would not be later ex-
ploited by the government for
political ends. The Agudat Is-
rael and Communist motions
were overwhelmingly defeated.
Aside from coalition discipline,
the proposal won support in re-
cent days when it became known
that Prime Minister David Ben-
Gurion, who was originally
among the foes of the idea, had
changed his mind and threw his
weight behind passage.
The Premier veered toward
Eban's view that such televi-
sion was particularly needed to
reduce the gay in the standards
of urban students compared with
newcomers to rural schools
which cannot command the same
level of teachers or facilities
as the city schools.
The Rothschild Memorial
Trust will provide $2,000,000 for
the project, it was learned.

Jewish Population Shifts in Montreal

MONTREAL, (JTA) — A
landmark in the life of the
Montreal Jewish community
will soon disappear from the
scene with the decision of the
Y.M. - Y.W.H.A. to sell the old
Davis Building, the "Y" center
since 1929.
Saul H. Levine, president of
the "Y," said the decision to
dispose of the edifice was "a
surrender to changing times."
The Jewish population has
shifted to other areas of the

city and the proceeds of the
sale of the Davis building will
be used to establish "Y"
branches in the new population
centers of St. Laurent, Cote St.
Luc and Chomeday.
The "Y" move and the
planned removal of the Old
People's Home to a new build-
ing in Sote St. Luc will leave
only the Jewish Public Library
and the JIAS building in what
was once the heart of Jewish
life in Montreal.
