JERUSALEM — Israel's Coun-
cil for Higher Education ruled
Tuesday that Bar Ilan Univer-
sity must discontinue awards of
master and doctoral degrees.
One Ph.D. and 25 masters de-
grees have been granted this
year for the first time.
The council ruled that those
"who received the degrees in
good faith" may not make use
of them pending an investigation
by a council committee.
The Education Ministry stated
that "The university awarded
the degrees out of an erroneous
interpretation of the law under
which authority to grant degrees
is invested in the Council for
A woman is arranging flowers in a
jar; a baby is crying on the shoulder
of his mother; a green garden and a
clean dining room; surrounded by
heavy doors and barbed wire—this is
the prison for women 'Nye Tirtsa."
- When the State of Israel was estab-
lished the people believed that we
will not have feminine criminals.
However it became clear that there
are a considerable number of women
that must be sent to prison. Scores
of women are serving at "Nve
Tirtsa," amongst them are women
who came with their babies; others
must give birth in prison,
All of them violated the law and
each one has her story. There is a
woman that struck at someone in
the welfare office, there is even a
woman that committed murder.
The director of the prison — a
mother of two children and a social
worker — knows how to deal with
the arrested women.
Most of the women in prison did
not know how to read and write.
They had no profession and life
pushed them into a bad road. There-
fore, first of all the women are
taught how to work, to read and
Shoshana for instance was sen-
tenced to life imprisonment. Now she
is preparing for matriculation tests
and helps arrange Saturday social
gatherings and cultural activities.
The attendants were picked after
psychotechnical and psychological
tests. Only those that know how to
handle a "sick" woman got the posi-
tion. The director of the prison is
always prepared to converse with an
inmate about her private problems
or merely speak to make it easier
for a woman in prison.
