TEL AVIV (JTA)—The leader-
ship bureau of the Mapai Party
decided on July 28, at a meeting
attended by Prime Minister Levi
Eshkol, to send official letters to
ex-Premier David Ben-Gurion and
all other known adherents of his
new Israel Labor List, informing
them formally that they have been
expelled from the party.
The decision was taken because
Ben-Gurion and his supporters
claimed the decision of the Mapai
Secretariat to oust the Ben-Gur-
ionists had stated they had "ex-
pelled themselves" by forming a
new election list. The Ben-Gurion
ists had insisted that the Secre-
tariat move was "vague" and al-
lows them to remain as members
of Mapai. The official letters will
eliminate that ambiguity.

Meanwhile, the Ben-Gurion-
ists published the first issue of
their weekly newspaper, Maint

Hadash (New Look). The publi-
cation includes an interview

with former Deputy Defense
Minister Shimon Peres stating

that members of the BenGurion
group had been offered govern-

ment posts. Peres resigned from

his post several weeks ago to
join the Ben-Gurion movement.
"Even within Mapai," stated
Peres, "Ben-Gurion and his sup-
porters were always in the minor-
ity. We could have remained in
the government. We were offered
jobs. But, if we remained, we
would have had to give up princi-
ples, and we were not prepared
to do so."

Ben-Gurion said at an election
rally Sunday that his faction
would be ready to join Israel's
next government providing cer-
tain other parties were to be ex-
cluded from the next coalition.
He named, specifically, among
the parties he would want ex-

cluded, the joint list of Herut
and the Liberal Party and the

Communist Party.

The Mapai Party Secretariat,
which Ben-Gurion is fighting, has
referred the move to expel him
and his political adherents to the
party's court of honor. The sec-
retariat and party leadership had
already voted the expulsion. But
Reuben Barkatt, secretary of
Mapai, said that, in accordance
with strict constiutional provi-
sions, such a step must be decided
finally by the court of honor.
It is certin, however that the court
It is certain, however that the court
court of honor would rule for ex-

and Israel's policy of response.
He told the mission members that
while he believed that neither
Jordan nor Lebanon were seeking
war with Israel, they were never-
theless not using all the means
available to halt the Fatah raids.
Levi Eshkol Says Israel
Must Be Adequately Armed
to Meet the threats of Nasser.
TEL AVIV (JTA)—Prime Min-
ister Levi Eshkol said Nasser's
declarations that Egypt intends
to develop new and non-conven-
tional weapons "compel us to arm
ourselves adequately, especially in
the face of the danger of some
reckless undertakings upon which
Egypt may embark out of despair
and loss of prestige."
Addressing an Israeli paratroop
exhibition at Ramat Gan, the Pre-
mier noted that "Israel's enemies
are receiving •arms in virtually
unlimited quantities." Asserting
that "Nasser insists that war with
Israel is inevitable," Eshkol said
that the Egyptian leader's "threats
are accompanied by military prepa-
rations which we cannot ignore."
He did not elaborate on the
types of non-conventional weapons
developed in Egypt. However, an
indication of the type of military-
material Egypt may receive was
given by Israel's former Deputy
Defense Minister Shimon Peres.
Addressing a political rally at
Petach Tikvah, he said "China is
knocking at Egypt's gate and may
supply Nasser with even more and
newer types of weapons, beyond
the arms already flowing into
Egypt." As the former highest
civilian official in the Defense
Ministry, next to the Premier,
Peres also pointed proudly to the
development of Israel's atomic re-
actor at Dimona, which is being

Egypt Reported Having
Trouble With Jet Program
and Its Nuclear Project
LONDON (JTA)—Egypt's Presi-
dent Gamal Abdel Nasser is having
trouble, much of it financial, in
developing further his jet pro-
pulsion program and his plans for
building an atomic reactor, dis-
patches from Cairo indicated. Both
the jet program and the nuclear
reactor project are parts of the
Nasser plan to develop sophisti-
cated weapons designed, ulti-
mately, for aggression against Is-
On the jet propulsion program,
which is reported to be in a "state
of anarchy" now, the difficulty re-
volves about 200 German scientists
and technicians who were reported
ready to leave Cairo and return
to Germany, because they had not
received their salaries recently
and were not sure they would get
their money soon.
On the atomic front, the Cairo
reports indicated that Nasser was
having trouble raising about $70,-
000,000 he needs to build a nuc-
lear reactor that would also pro-
vide facilities for desalination of
seawater. That plant was scheduled
to be built near Alexandria.

the study and future work per-
formance of Israeli Arab students

ing, will receive the first Max Mit-
chell Achievement Award totaling
$10,000, made through the Jewish
Federation-C o u n cil's Community
The two-year project was con-
ceived and proposed by Carl
Frankenstein, professor of special
education at the Hebrew Univer-
sity's school of education in Israel.
Frankenstein was selected from
among four finalists from Tech-
nion and Hebrew University, ac-
cording to Victor Carter, award
committee chairman and president
of the Jewish Community Founda-
tion board of trustees.
Lack of the feeling of belong-
ing, stated the research proposal,
is the source of much resentment
and frustration among the Arabs
of Israel. This condition stems
from a conviction encouraged by
Arab bloc propaganda, that

Frankenstein calls living on the
basis of such hopes a "provisional
existence" which limits not only
man's potentials for creative self-
expression and satisfaction from
achievement, but also the ability to
behave intelligently.
He asks: "Can the prospect of
participating in some form of cre-
ative achievement and service pro-
vide the individual with a feeling
of belonging?"
Intensive case studies, it is
hoped, will aid in the understand-
ing and interpretation of minority
psychology in general and Israeli
Arabs in particular.
The Max Mitchell Achievement
Award was founded this year in
the form of a trust fund adminis-
tered by the Jewish Community/'
Foundation. It provided $5,000 for,
each academic year of 1965-66 and
1966-67 at Hebrew University or
Technion, for a scholarship or re-
search grant which promises to
result in "an outstanding contri-
bution to the state of Israel."
