Arab Students at Hebrew U. Continue Orlinsky to Speak

tinuing trend by Arab students the rest of Israel.

at the Hebrew University to switch
from traditional preferences for
literature, history and law in fa-
vor of the natural sciences.
Figures in a report compiled by
the office of the dean of students
reveal that one third of Israel
minority students enrolled in the
past academic year were studying
the natural sciences and allied
fields such as medicine, dentistry,
pharmacy and agriculture.
They include Moslem and Chris-
tian Arabs, as well as Druze stu-

Lansky Gets Another
Visa Extension; Paper
Calls Libel Suit a Hoax

JERUSALEM (JTA) — The in-
terior ministry has granted Meyer
Lansky a one-month extension of
his tourist visa which was due to
expire Tuesday but said it had
"no knowledge" of his having ap-
plied for Israeli citizenship.
Ministry sources said that a de-
cision was still pending on Lan-
sky's future residence in Israel.
The reputed leader of American
gambling rackets arrived in Israel
July 27, 100 on a tourist visa
valid for three months and has
since received five extensions. He
said recently that he was applying
for citizenship under the Law of
Return.
Lansky has filed a $350,000 libel
suit against the newspaper Yediot
Ahronot for defaming his char-
acter in articles about his alleged
criminal activities. The newspaper
claims the suit is a "hoax, not
presented iii good faith but out of
necessity to enable him to stay
in Israel."
It contends that it was obligated
"to throw light on the criminal
past of the plaintiff" and that Lan-
sky had no "good name" to "un-
dermine."
Lansky was ordered by the Tel
Aviv District Court to deposit
$17,500 to cover costs in case he
. loses his suit. The paper had de-
, manded that Lansky deposit the
Money because he is not a citizen
of Israel and his tourist visa may
expire.
_Lin a related development, the
newspaper Haaretz apologized in
print to the luxury Dan Hotel for
an article which claimed Lansky
had -invested in it and in other
establishments
of Dan Hotels En-
,
terprises. The chain promptly
dropped a libel suit against Ha-
aretz.

The report also shows the total
number of these students at the
university during 1970-71 went up
from 205 to 230—an increase of
12.2 per cent over the number
enrolled last year.
One third of this group study
in the faculty of humanities,
while the last third are in such
fields as social sciences, law and
social work. Thirteen per cent
of the students were enrolled in
the university's one-yea pre-
academic course, and of this
percentage two-thirds were pre-
paring for science studies.
Hitherto, it had been thought
that Arab students tend to gravi-
tate toward the humanities and
law rather than the sciences.
The actual breakdown according
to faculties reveals that 9.4 per
cent of the students were enrolled
in the faculty of law; 10.7 per cent
in the social sciences; 9.1 per cent
in the medical sciences; and 6.9
per cent in education and courses
leading toward the diploma in
teachers training.
In addition to the undergrad-
uates, 22 students were engaged
in MA studies. Of this number,
Islam and allied subjects ac-
counted for over 68 per cent of
the areas studied.
The increasing popularity of
chemistry among minority students
is shown in the 1970-71 figures:
an increase of 12.5 per cent above
that of .the preceding year.
At the same time the figures
clearly reflect the trend away
from the literary arts.
The report further shows that
IL 84,800 ($24,592) was allocated
to a total of 84 minority students
in the form of partial and full
grants.
