Beth Yehuda Plans
to Open Dormitory

Yeshivath Beth Yehuda plans to
open a dormitory after Sukot.
The dormitory, a house adjacent
to the school at 25870 Fairfax,
Southfield, has room for 16 stu
dents, but only 12 will live there
at first.
The latter are from Detroit and
are in the mesifta department, the
10th and 11th Hebrew grades.
They will live in the dormitory
during the week and go home for
most weekends.
After their normal classes, the
students will have an extra He-
brew class at night, besides time
for homework.

Rabbi Eliyohn Finkelstein,
bead of the mesifta department,
explained that the reason for the
dormitory is "to create a to-
tally academic environment for
Torah learning. We want to get
the student away from the TV
and other distractions found in
the home."

Rabbi Finkelstein also said that
Beth Yehuda hopes to "eventually
draw students from out of town,
thereby creating a yeshiva with
status and number like other
yesbivot in the country."
Beth Yehuda hopes to expand
its dormitory facilities when this
one is filled.
Cooking will be done by Mrs.
Jacob Kreitman, while Shea Klein
will be the dormitory supervisor.


Histadrut to Push Fight
to Hold Down Prices

TEL AVIV (JTA)—A Histadrut
spokesman has promised that the
trade union would continue its ef-
forts to hold down prices despite
the apparent failure of its first at-
tempt to mobilize consumer action
against rising prices.

Histadrut called one-hour con-
sumer boycotts last week in a sec-
tion of Tel Aviv, in the new immi-
grant centers of Kiryat Gat and
Beersheba and in the resort town
of Herzliya, but admitted that they
were only partially successful.
Most housewives were too busy
shopping to pay much attention to
the appeals of Histadrut volunteers.
The trade union federation said
the consumer strike was not di-
rected against goods that have in-
creased in price because of higher
Earlier, the port of Ashdod was
shut down by a strike of maritime
workers which was opposed by His-
tadrut, Israel's trade union federa-
tion. Histadrut warned that it
would withdraw its support of the
workers unless they return to their
jobs and negotiated their demands
under normal conditions.
The harbor pilots, navigators and
tugboat operators are demanding
higher wages. Ships bound for Ash-
dod have been diverted to Haifa.
The port, Israel's newest, has been
plagued in the past by strikes and
slowdowns by longshoremen.

Sander Levin Urges
Students to Condemn
Dissent by Violence

Democratic candidate for Gover-
nor Sander Levin told students at
Kellogg Community College, Bat-
tle Creek, that "You must take
the lead in condemning those who
use violence if you are to prevail
in the battle against injustice."
"The FBI reports that 4,330
bombings have occured in the Uni-
ted States in the past 15 months,"
said Levin. "Forty people have
been killed and 380 injured in
these senseless attacks on human
life in the name of political dis-
sent . .
"The vast majority of youth
does not believe in the tactics of
the terrorist's bomb to achieve re-
form. But unless youth condemns
these tactics, the effectiveness of
legitimate attempts to achieve re-
form will be threatened," he said.
"Those who use the bomb, the
hand grenade or the pistol claim
they are doing so in the hope of
reforming the system. They seek
your support, but they deserve
neither your support nor your
