Meanwhile, Israeli authorities

Evacuation was continued in the
Shati and Jabeliyah camps where
work was pushed creation of
new roads for security. The first 40
families in the Raffah camp, on of
the largest in the strip, were evac-
uated and transfered to other flats.
Two Israeli army officers toured
Gaza and the surrounding area.
Gen. David Eleazar, chief of gener-
al headquarters, and Gen. Aric Shar-
on, chief of the southern command,
reported that conditions had large-
ly returned to normal, with shops
almost all open but with fewer

period is recommended in the code
and there is to be a sabbatical

Viewing as enhancing the quality
of professional services that educa-
tors attend educational confer-
ences, the code states that "it
is encumbent upon schools to en-
courage participation in confer-
ences by granting time and allow-

An administrative spokesman_
for one of the Detroit schools

pointed out that the educators'

the spirit" of national organiza-
