JERUSALEM — Suspended
jail sentences and fines of up
to $250 were imposed Monday
on eight religious zealots for
demonstrations against a mis-
sion school in Haifa last Sep-
tember.
Another defendant, a 15-year-
old Yeshiva student, was put
on probation by Chief Magis-
trate Mrs. Starkman Verlinsky
of Haifa Magistrates Court.
The trial was the second
growing out of demonstrations
staged against three mission
schools in September. The first
one also ended in fines and
suspended jail sentences. A
third trial involving 104 zealots
has been bogged down in pro-
c e d u r e questions in recent
weeks.
Israel's Cabinet postponed
action toward solving the dis-
puted Sabbath traffic in the
vicinity of the Mandelbaum
Gate, after Prime Minister
Levi' Eshkol informed the
Ministers that a new plan
for a possible solution has
been proposed. The new plan,
he said, has been submitted
by Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Nis-
sim in cooperation with the
Ministries of the Interior
and Police, and is now being
considered by a special min-
isterial committee.
Meanwhile, the area around
the Mandelbaum Gate, where
travelers have been hooted,
jeered and stoned every Sat-
urday for more than two
months, was quieter last Satur-
day than .it has been for many
weeks.
A. statement opposing any
coercion on this issue, either
by religious elements or by
secularists, was issued by
Rabbi Zvi Yehuda Kook, son
of the late, revered Chief
Rabbi Kook. As head of the
Merkaz Harav Yeshiva, Rabbi
Kook called on all sides to
find means for bringing the
religious and non-religious
camps closer "by way of a
dialogue, in order to bring
