Eshkol Celebrates 70th Birthday
With Vigorous `Str ► ll' Around Cit
JERUSALEM (JTA) — Prime
Minister Levi Eshkol, who became
70 years of age Monday, began
celebrating his birthday Sunday
night by campaigning vigorously
for the election of the . 1VLapai-
Ahdut Avoda slate in the general
lections to be- held next Tuesday.
He addressed several street ral-
lies, visited the Baka and Kata-
mon districts of this city, populat-
ed chiefly by new immigrants, ad-
dressed crowds from the balconies
of apartment houses in those
areas, and entered homes where
he shook hands with the residents
and urged them to vote for the
ticket which he heads. In one of
the homes, he was presented with
a large birthday cake.
Deputy Premier Abba Eban
reported Tuesday that public
opinion polls taken for the
Mapai-Ahdut Avoda alignment
had made the two parties "very
optimistic" about the outcome of
the elections. He added that the
polls indicated that Rafi would
be "lucky" to get more than 10
seats in Israel's parliament.
He said the Polls did not indi:
cate there would be any great in-
crease for the Gahal list or for the
opposition Mapam - or the National
Religious bloc. He said that he
personally favored formation of a
"classic coalition" under Premier
Eshkol of Mapai, Ahdut Avoda, the
National Religious Party, Mapam
and the Independent Liberals who
refused to join the Gahal align-

Many Israelis are frankly tired
of the long campaign in which a
new group, David Ben-Gurion's
Israel Workers List (Rafi) is
challenging the Eshkol leadership
of the Mapai-Ahdut Avoda align-
ment, while another group, Gahal,
uniting Herut and the General
Zionists, is contending for suprem-
acy at the polls.
In most of his speeches, Eshkol
urged the voters to give the Mapai-
Ahdut Av.oda alignment a plural-

with former Premier David Ben-
Gurion in a bid to heal the party
breach after the Nov. 2 municipal

party leaders spoke with Ben-
Gurion for more than an hour.
At one point in the talks, one
of the leaders proposed formation'
of a committee of three to arbi-

Eshkol and former Premier Ben-
Gurion. To this Ben-Gurion re-
portedly commented "very well,
but they should be judges."
Israeli Journalists Plan
Strike Against Libel Law
TEL AVIV (JTA) — The Israel
Journalists Association voted to
conduct a 24-hour strike on Nov.
16 in protest against a new law,
passed during the last session of
the Knesse (parliament). The law,
defining libel, is said by the journ-
alists to contain clauses curbing
freedom of the press.
The Journalists Association had
denounced the new libel law since
its adoption and threatened to
strike in protest. However, the
walk-out was delayed until after
Israel's _general elections, which
will be held Nov. 2.
