83 New Students Record
Enrollment for HUC

NEW YORK (JTA)—Members of
the largest incoming rabbinic class

school officials have announced.
Fifty of the new students are
studying at the Cincinnati school,
18 at the New York school and 15
in California. There are now a total
of 264 rabbinic studies at the three
Officials said the record enroll-
ment was particularly significant
because of indications that attend-
ance at theological schools of most
denominations was stagnant or on
the decrease. The officials also
said it was significant that almost
all of the new rabbinical students
were raised in Reform Jewish
homes and that many had been
leaders of the National Federa-
tion of Temple Youth, the youth
affiliate of the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations, the parent
body of Reform synagogues.

would not consider anyone but
Gen. Dayan for the post of defense
minister and that there was no
reason to replace him.
Eshkol held both the premiership
and the defense portfolio until the
May 1967 crisis when he relinquish-
ed the latter to Gen. Dayan under
popular and political pressure. He
said that while he formerly be-
lieved that the prime minister and
defense minister should be the
same person, he had changed his
mind. "The premiership is a full
time job, and the defense post re-
quires a special man to fulfill it,"
Eshkol said.
The election will be for seats
in the Knesset. Under the Israeli
system, the party which polls
the most votes forms a govern.
ment which must win a vote of
confidence before taking office.
Gen. Dayan, hero of the 1956
Sinai campaign, is credited by
many Israelis for the lightning
victory in the Six-Day War and
is considered to be the most
popular political figure in Israel

And His Orchestra


Eshkol and his older colleagues
of the Labor Party and former
Mapai Party control the political
machinery. Many observers have
seen a contest looming between
the two.
The Labor Party, now in political
alignment with Mapam, controls
63 of the Knesset's 120 seats, an
absolute majority for one party
for the first time in Israel's his-
tory. If it retains that proportion
after the October elections it would
be able to form Israel's first non-
coalition government. Some Labor
Party leaders, however, have rec-
ommended retaining a coalition in
the interests of national unity.
