Ben-Gurion Balks at Party Merger

TEL AVIV (JTA)—The much-
discussed and much - negotiated
plan for a merger into one power-
ful party of Israel's three labor

parties collided Tuesday with the
determined opposition of former
Premier David Ben-Gurion to a
union under existing Mapai leader-
Negotiations to merge Premier
Levi Eshkol's Mapai, Ahdut Avo-
d a and the National Workers
Party (Rafi) have repeatedly
reached the stage of final decision,
only to run into new difficulties.
Ben-Gurion, who formed Rafi as
a group to challenge Eshkol's na-
tional and party leadership, had
indicated previously he would not
support the merger but that he
also would not oppose it. In the
latest revelopment, the old warrior
said he could not accept merger
as long as the present Mapai lead-
ership was in power.
Rafi officials decided to post-
pone for a few days a meeting
scheduled for Tuesday night which
would create a single labor party
with 59 seats in the 120-seat parlia-
ment. Shimon Peres, Rafi secre-
tary general, and Yosef Almogi,
another Rafi leader, made a spe-
cial trip Monday to Ben-Gurion's
Negev retreat at Sde Boker to
plead with him to go along on the
merger but the pleas failed.

Another new barrier was a let-
ter of "clarification" sent by Mapai
to Raft. Mapai officials said that
the new parliament, the seventh,
which would follow the proposed
merger, would have the same pro-
portional sealing of the three labor
parties as within the proposed
merged party. This would mean
that the former parties would
maintain the 36-to-10-to-9 ratio
of Mapai, Raft and Ahdut re-
spectively, of the present Knesset,
a proposal certain to jar some
Raft leaders.
This new problem, as well as
Ben-Gurion's stand may lead Rafi
to a reconsideration of the merger.
It is strongly felt within Rafi that
the party should not go to the
merger with Ben-Gurion in opposi-

Constitution Planners

Curb Parochial Schools

ALBANY (JTA) — The New
York State constitutional conven-
tion approved a proposal which
would put some restrictions on the
use of public funds for private
community' development programs
and would bar use of these funds
for non-public, parochial schools.
The school-state issue was actual-
ly secondary to the measure before
the convention—a grants and loans
proposal to ease the present con-
stitutional ban on the granting or
lending of state funds or credit
to private enterprise. Such an ease-
ment is considered essential to
greater state cooperation with pri-

vate enterprise for improvements

Opponents of public money for
non-public school purposes opposed
the easement amendment because
they felt its language would allow
state grants for building of non-
public schools. The amendment
which broke the impasse came
after Charles J. Tobin, Jr., legis-

lative representative of the Catho-
lice bishops of New York, indi-

ZOA Developing
2 Israel Schools

NEW YORK (JTA) — Plans for
the development of two schools in
Israel into the first American cen-
ter for pre-college education in
that country were announced to
1,000 delegates attending the meet-
ing of the national executive com-
mittee of the Zionist Organization
of America.
Leon Ilutovich, executive direc-
tor of the ZOA, said the project
involved the Mollie Goodman Aca-
demic High School and the Kfar
Silver Agricultural High School
which share a single campus near
Ashkelon. The academic high school
was named after the late Mrs.
Mollie Goodman, wife of Abraham
Goodman, American industralist
and philanthropist.
The agricultural high school now
has an enrollment of 340 students,
llutovich said. Ultimately, the pre-
college campus, he said will have
an enrollment of more than 1,000
students. The campus, he declared,
will also serve as a training ground
for young Zionist leaders. This sum-
mer, be reported, 100 American
high school students and ZOA
youth leaders attended a seven-
week camp and leadership train-
ing course at Kfar Silver.
In resolutions adopted at the ses-
sions, the ZOA declared 196'7 the
ZOA's 70th Jubilee Year, calling
on all Zionist regions and districts
to mark the observance suitably;
called for increased immigration
from the Western countries into
Israel; and pledged cooperation
with the Israel Government Im-
migration Planning Authority in de-
veloping special incentives to aid
new immigrants coming into Is-
Jacques Torczyner, president of
ZOA, told the convention that "a
new, imaginative policy" must be
worked out regarding the Arab
refugees. He declared that the Unit-
ed States government "together
with the free world and American
Jewry, should develop a construc-
tive plan for a permanent solution
of the refugee problem."
