New Malben Proje cts to Assist Aged and Handicapped Children in Israel

TEL AVIV—As it completes its
20th year of operations, Malben,
the Joint Distribution Committee's
health and welfare agency in Is-
rael, has announced a series of
new programs to broaden its serv-
ices to the aged and to handicap-
ped children, as well as initiating
new projects in the fields of re-
habilitatiodand mental health.
Louis Bridal), JDC chairman, re-
ported thal...TDC/Malben has in-
creased its 1969 allocations for
services to handicapped children
almost fii/e-fold, from 150,000
pounds ($42,860) in 1968 to 715,000
pounds ($204,300) in 1969. Child
development centers will be set up
in Tel Aviv and in Jerusalem.

Civil Aviation Unit
Seeking to Curb
Airliner Hijacking

MONTREAL (JTA) — A legal
subcommittee of the International
Civil Aviation Organization has
drawn up a draft convention by
which any person who hijacks or
tries to hijack an aircraft will be
considered a criminal and any
state signing the pact will agree
to hold him under arrest until
criminal proceedings can be
started.
The 13 member states compos-
ing the subcommittee are Algeria,
Canada, Colombia, Denmark,
France, India, Israel, Japan,
Nigeria, Switzerland, Tunisi a,
United Kingdom and United States.
The draft also stated that hi-
jacking should be considered an
extraditable offense in any extra-
dition treaties between the mem-
bers of the ICAO. The draft added
that any state should consider hi-
jacking as extraditable even in the
absence of a treaty. The draft was
referred to the ICAO Council which
will decide on it.
Any member nation holding a hi-
jacker and refusing to extradite
him will be obligated to submit the
case to the competent authorities
with a view to initiating legal pro-
ceedings against the hijacker, ac-
cording to the draft.
If the draft is approved by the
ICAO, each of the member coun-
tries would have to pass enforc-
ing legislation to implement it.

In addition, an assessment cen-
ter for handicapped children is to
be opened next month in Beer-
sheba.
The child development cen-
ters, Broido explained, will spe-
cialize in early detection of de-
fects and disabilities in the pre-
natal, natal and postnatal
stages, with regular follow-up
examinations up to age 18. The
centers also will provide guid-
ance for parents and training
of professional staff.
Two new pilot programs to
assist deaf and hard-of-hearing
children are being instituted in the
Tel Aviv elementary school sys-
tem, Broido stated.
Broido disclosed that JDC/Mal-
ben has allocated 450,000 pounds
($128,570) over the next three
years for a new geriatrics and re-
habilitation ward for the chroni-
cally ill in Jerusalem's Shaari
Zedek Hospital. It will provide re-
habilitation services, including oc-
cupational and physiotherapy for
the long-term patients.
Broido also noted that Israel's
first psychiatric day care center,
to be operated within the frame-
work of a general hospital, is
scheduled to open in August.
During 1969 JDC/Malben will
continue to assist development
towns in coping with their social
welfare problems. A pilot project
instituted in Beit Shemesh, in co-
operation with local agencies, to
detect, assess and prescribe treat-
ment for the rehabilitation of the
medically, socially and vocation-
ally handicapped, will be con-
tinued.
