Israel to Issue
Anrtiversay Coin

Israel Memorial Day
Recalled on Stamp

On the occasion of the State of
Israel's 19th anniversary, the Bank
of Israel will issue a crown-sized
silver Independence Day commem-
orative coin. It has a face value
of five Israeli pounds and, as its
eight predecessors, is legal ten-
der. This year's coin also com-
memorates the 10th anniversary
of the opening of the Port of Eilat.
The date of issue is May 15, Inde-
pendence Day, as reckoned by the
Hebrew calendar.
The coin was minted in silver

THE '5' LIROT COIN
in a limited issue of 8,000 proof

and 31,000 bright, uncirculated.
The coin measures 34 millimeters
in diameter, and its weight is 25
grams.
Eilat was chosen for recognition
by the State of Israel on this
year's Independence Day coin
since, in its 10 year of operation,
the Port of Eilat has become a
vital trade route for Israel through
the Red Sea; 3,000 years ago Eilat
was the trading port of King Solo-
mon but following his reign it re-
mained in oblivion for 25 centuries
until the establishment of the State
of Israel and its subsequent cam-
paign to re-establish the port once
again made Eilat an international
waterway and Israel's gateway for
trade with the Far East.
The obverse of the 19th anni-
versary coin is dominated by the
'5' of the coin's denomination in
Israel pounds. The words "Lirot
Yisraeliot (Israel Pounds)" ap-
pear in Hebrew in the curve of
the down stroke of the numeral.

DREAMS COME TAM.

SOUTH HAVEN, MICHIGAN
Mem 137-Sill OM. EN)

JOHANNESBURG (JTA)—Both
houses of South Africa's parlia-
ment passed a bill setting up a
new, national education policy
which, among other clauses, pro-
vides that education in government
schools shall be "Christian and
broadly national in character."
However, Sen. Jan de Klerk,
principal sponsor of the legisla-
tion, who is minister for educa-
tion, arts and sciences, has prompt-
ly assured the Jewish community
that the bill maintains the status
quo "as far as Jewish parents,
teachers and pupils are con-
cerned."
During the debate on the bill in
the National Assembly, Sen. de
Klerk had told the house: "The
provision that education should
have a Christian character merely
meant that education should be
built on the foundation of tradi-
tional, Western culture and philo-
sophy of life, with biblical prin-
ciples recognized."
The editor of the South African
Jewish Times had requested Sen.
de Klerk editorially to clarify that
statement further. In his reply,
the minister for education de-
clared:
"I fail to appreciate the un-
easiness of the Jewish commun-
ity in the face of the clarifica-
tions and assurances given by
me in both houses of parliament
on the national education policy
bill. From the Hansard (official
minutes) reports, you will ob-
serve that my definition of the
concepts of 'Christian education'
and 'broad national character'
leave no room for fears.
"In any case the bill specifically
states that 'the religious conviction
of the parents and pupils shall be
respected in regard to religious in-
struction and religious ceremon-
ies,' and the bill contains no other
provisions appertaining to the re-
ligious convictions of teachers. In
effect, therefore, the status quo is
being maintained so far as Jewish
parents, teachers and pupils are
concerned. In the light of the fore-
going, any fear or doubt which
may exist is without foundation."

Israel Starts Export
to Italy of Millions of
Sterilized Fruit Flies

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

ROME (JTA) — Israel began
April 20 the export of 4,000,000
automatically-sterilized fruit flies
a week in an international ex-
periment to bring about a mas-
sive reduction in the number of
such insects and in the millions
of dollars in damages they in-
flict on Mediterranean agricul-
ture.
The flies are sterilized in the
Biological Research Institute at

ed on the island of Capri, off
Naples. The project, which will
result in total exports of 100,-
000,000 sterilized fruit flies, is
being carried out in cooperation
with the Italian National Re-
search Council, the Food and
Agricultural Organization of the
United Nations, the Israeli Cit-
rus Marketing Board, the Inter-
