Reclamation Started
in Golan Heights Area

JERUSALEM (JTA)—The Jew-
ish National Fund has begun land
reclamation projects for settle-
ments in the occupied territory
near Banyas and Kibutz Golan in
the Syrian heights, it was dis-
closed by Yaacov Tzur, director of
the JNF.
At a press conference here, he
also described land clearing proj-
ects in the mountainous regions of
Israel, and the washing of salty
soil in the Negev desert north of
Eilat, all undertaken by his agency,
which is the land reclamation arm
of the World Zionist Organization.
Tzur said that the JNF employs
up to 5,000 jobless Israelis daily in
afforestation projects in various
parts of Israel, and also supervises
the employment of 1,500 Arabs in
the occupied territories. The latter
are working on projects started
before the June war under the aus-
pices of the United Nations Food
a n d Agriculture Organization,
mainly in the Nablus and Gaza
regions.
He reported that 500,000 trees
were planted this year. Among
next year's projects, he said, is
the Ben-Gurion forest that will
be planted around the immigrant
town of Dimona, in Southern Is-
rael, to mark the former prime

the mountainous areas is the most
difficult, but it must go on to pro-
vide arable land for the second
generation of settlers.
BY HENRY LEONARD
An average of 60.000 tons of rock
must be removed from every acre
of land.
In the desert region near Eilat,
the salt washing process will clear
250 acres for each new settlement
but the process will take years.
Tzur said that, for its projects
to be successful, the JNF will
strengthen its fund-raising activi-
ties abroad to match the United
Jewish Appeal's emergency cam-
paigns in countries where JNF
conducts separate drives, as in the
United States.
He said that only a quarter of
the JNF's receipts come from the
United States, the rest from Eur-
ope, South Africa and other coun-
tries.

Ossie Sladek, now a U.S. resi-
dent working as youth and musical
director for the Beth Joseph Syna-
gogue of Denver, was in Detroit
last week visiting friends. While
here, he arranged with Boren-
stein's book store to carry the
45-rpm recording of "Hatsan-
hanim" ("The Paratroopers") and
"Song of Laughter," another song
for which he wrote the music.
Band Box Co. of Denver recorded
the Israeli army songs with
English lyrics.
Son of a well-known Czech corn-
Poser and violinist, Bedrich Sladek,
Ossie began his music career at
age 9, when he made his debut as
accordionist with the Hungarian
National Theater in Kassa.
During the German occupa-
tion, he and his family went
into hiding in the Slovakian
mountains. With the proclama-
tion of the state of Israel at
war's end, the Sladeks emigrated
to Haifa. At 15, living on a
youth settlement, young Sladek
began to devote all his free
time to composing music.

The same year that he was
drafted and named to the North-
ern Command post, Sladek saw the
first of his many songs released
by Hed-Arzi, Israel's major rec-
ording company. With the out-
break of the Sinai Campaign in
1956, Sgt. Sladek wrote the para-
troopers hymn.
The following year, he left
Israel for a concert tour of South
America and then came to the
United States where he performed
as folk singer and night club en-
tertainer. In 1960, he participated
in the Colorado Folk Festival and
was among the folk artists in-
cluded in the subsequent record-
ing, 1960 Exodus Folk Festival.
Married to a Denverite, Sladek
is the father of three children.

TEMPLE CRISES: The time when no one
could open the Ark ...

Planned for Mt. Scopus

NEW YORK (JTA)—Meshulam
Midis has donated $250,000 — a
portion of which was contributed
by his friends—toward the con-
struction of the Hadassah Youth
Center atop Mount Scopus, in
Jerusalem.
This was announced by Mrs.
Mortimer Jacobson, national presi-
dent of Hadassah.
The building of the Hadassah
Youth Center, Mrs. Jacobson dis-
closed, will be named in honor of
Mrs. Judith Riklis, the donor's
wife.
Mrs. Jacobson said architects
are now working on plans for the
Hadassah Youth Center, and that
building operations are expected
to begin within two months.
It will accomodate Jewish youth
from the United States and other
countries who come to work and
study in Israel as part of programs
ranging from six months to one
year. The center will be located
near Hadassah Hospital on Mount
Scopus, which had stood empty for
19 years.
