LISTENING

Religious Issues
Discussed by
Eshkol Minister

,

and zealots who stone vehi-
cles, to requests by National

Religious party Ministers for

a ban on Sabbath traffic in

the districts concerned. It
was also proposed to close on
the Sabbath the Mandelbaum
Gate, where arrivals of tour-
ists on Saturdays were said
to have led to the renewed
demonstrations.

Before the discussion, Deputy
Premier Abba Eban, who is act-
ing Police Minister, reported
on the disturbances last Satur-
day in which two policemen
were injured during a clash
with zealots.

The mass trial of 104 ye-
shiva students, most of them
under 20 years of age, who
were arrested earlier this
month f or demonstrating
against Christian misisonary
schools here, was set for Oct.
15, after the accused entered
a not guilty plea today before
Magistrate Eliezer

The date was set after the
defense counsel asked for time
to prepare a brief and indicated
that he would call on various
religious personalities to show
that the demonstration was jus-
tified.
The boys are charged with
"criminal trespass" into the
French St. Joseph's Convent
School and the Finnish Evan-
gelical Mission here. French
Vice-Consul Benjamin Cohen
attended the hearing as an ob-
server. The hearing was held in
the larger premises of the
Jerusalem District Court be-

JERUSALEM — Religious is-
sues which have strained rela-
tions between Mapai and the
National Religious Party were
discussed Wednesday at a two-
hour meeting between Premier
Levi Eshkol and Interior Min-
ister and religious leader
Moshe Shapiro.
The discussions covered the
recent demonstrations by ortho-
dox youth zealots at three
Christian mission schools, dis-
turbances created by zealots in
Jerusalem over Sabbath traffic,
the second non kosher kitchen
on the luxury liner SS Shalom
and the forthcoming chief rab-
binate elections.
The meeting was described
as having been held in "good
spirit" and as having produced
a "meeting of minds" on a num-
ber of points. However, the
only publicized agreement was
to air the problems within the
cabinet and at another Eshkol-
Shapiro meeting next week.
Meanwhile, Transport Minis-
ter Israel Baryehuda asked the
Road Controller's Office to
study the possibility of re-
routing traffic via the Mandel-
baum Gate between Old and
New Jerusalem to enable veh-
icles to bypass orthodox sec-
tions of the Israeli capital. The
minister acted in accordance
With his undertaking at the last
cabinet meeting to investigate
the traffic question with a view
to ending clashes between the
zealots and police over Sabbath
traffic.

JERUSALEM—Israel has re- i
called its Minister to South
Africa and will henceforth be
represented there by a charge
d'affaires in a move understood
Tuesday to have been made in
the spirit of continuing crit-
icism of South Africa in the
United Nations over its apart-
heid policy.
While the return of Simcha
Pratt was formally described
as completion of a tour of duty,
it was learned that Israel will
not name a successor Minister.
A UN sanctions proposal called
for severance of diplomatic
relations with South Africa.
