Reburial on Masada
For Bones Believed
Remains of Defenders
JERUSALEM (JTA) — Bones be-
lieved to be the remains of Jewish
defenders of the mountain fortress
of Masada against Roman Legion.
naires 1,900 years ago were re-
buried with full military honors on
the site of that ancient fortress
near the Dead Sea. The remains
were said to belong to 27 men,
women and children who took their
own lives rather than fall into
The cortege was accompanied to
the burial site by a guard of honor
and a rifle squad. Prof. Yigal
Yadin, the Hebrew University arch.
aeologist who discovered the bones
in a cave while excavating around
Masada, read a selection from an
address of Elazar Ben Yair, the
commander of Masada during the
seige. Others officiating at the re-
burial ceremonies were Gen. Shlomo
Goren, chief chaplain of Israel's
armed forces, and Dr. Zerach War-
haftig, minister of religious affairs.
Some controversy surrounded the
authenticity of the bones. Prof.
Yadin himself said there was no
proof that all of the skeletons be-
longed to the Masada defenders or
that they dated from the same pe-
riod. But religious authorities in-
sisted that the remains be given
heroes' burial on the Mount of
Olives outside Jerusalem. The cere-
monies were to have taken place
in March but were postponed while
a special Cabinet committee con-
sidered the evidence. The Commit-
tee eventually recommended re-
burial but the site selected was
Masada. a remote location, rather
than the Mount of Olives.
Halprin Youth Hostel
Dedicated at Nathanya
TEL AVIV (JTA)—The Rose L.
I Halprin youth hostel was dedicat-
ed at Kibbutz Bohan near Nathan-
ya last week. It will serve Jewish
youth from abroad who come to
: Israel for the "Shenat Sherut"—
a year of voluntary service.
Dr. Israel Goldstein chairman
of Keren Hayesod, spoke at the
dedication ceremonies which were
attended by local officials and
The hostel is named for Mrs.

during the month of June there
were 21 incidents of firing by
Egyptian forces and five by Is-
raeli forces on UN personnel or
He said the shooting "further
demonstrates the degree of disre-
gard which now prevails for the
Security Council cease-fire in the
canal sector." He added, "It is
certainly true to say that since
June 1967. the level of violence
in the Middle East has never been
higher than it is at present."
Thant said that he felt com-
pelled to warn the council that if
the observers continue to be fired
on, he would have "no choice"
but to consider their future dis-
position. including possible with-
drawal. after consultations with
the governments providing the ob-
servers. He said that UN ob-
servers. their posts, shelter and
equipment had been targets.
(The British Foreign Office ex-
pressed agreement with Thant's
grim assessment. It issued a state-
ment saying, "U Thant's warning
confirms our impression that there
has been a deplorable increase in
incidents along the cease-fire
lines with the consequent danger
of escalation. This points out still
again the urgent need for a set-
tlement and for restraint by both
He said that if the situation con-
tinued. it could "render vain ef-
forts for a peaceful settlement and
it could even be the overture to
more general and intensive hos-
tilities" in the Middle East.
Dead Sea Scroll
JERUSALEM (JTA)—Prof. Yigal
Yadin has announced the acquisi-
tion by the Israel Museum of an-
other Dead Sea Scroll, known as
the "Temple Scroll."
About 30 feet long, it is the
longest in Israel's possession. The
scroll contains, in Hebrew, rules
concerning the Temple, feasts and
kings, Prof Yadin, the arch-
aeologist, said the scroll had been
obtained from an East Jerusalem
Arab who deals in antiquities. The
reported purchase price, other
sources said, was about $71,000.
