Arab teen-age girls from the village of Ein Rafah in
Israel enjoy the fellowship and vocational training derived
through Pioneer Women's newest Arab women's club. The
three-day per week program provides the young women of
the village with instruction in such handicraft skills as rug
making, embroidery and sewing. The Pioneer Women organ-
ization sponsors 32 Arab women's clubs in Israel.

Dayan Warns Israel's Army:

Maintain Superiority in
M. E.

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Defense
Minister Moshe Dayan de-
clared that Israel's armed
forces, especially the air force
—"the most powerful deter-
rent against the enemy"—
must continue to maintain
its superiority in face of a
new phase in the Middle
East balance of arms.
Dayan referred to the con-
tinuing flow of arms from
Russia, France, England and
even. The U.S., into the oil-
rich 'Arab countries with no
thought for Israel's security.
He said, moreover, that a
new technological era poses
problems that the air force
must overcome to maintain
its lead.
The defense minister ad-
dressed graduating pilots at
a major Israeli air base
where 20,000 spectators wit-
nessed a spectacular 45-min-
ute air show and a tragedy.
Benjamin Gran, an Israeli
television cameraman, was

fatally injured by a plane
taking off from a runway on
which he was standing. The
runway was out of bounds.
An investigation has been
started by the air force.
The aerial display featured
Israel's Phantom jets and a
propellor-driven Spitfire, be-
I lieved to be the only one of
the famed British World War
II fighters still in flight con-
dition.

bear are those that never

Weizmann Institute to StudyChromosome
Behavior in Plants; Faculty Men Honored

From Queens College in
the City University of New
York comes a new quarterly
—Yiddish — "devoted to Yid-
dish and Yiddish literature."
Appearing under the edit-
orship of Joseph C. Landis,
whose associate editors are
Benjamin A. Gebiner and
Lee Cogan, this quarterly,
issued by Queens College
Press, is made possible by
a grant from Atran Founda-
tion.
The editorial in the first
issue pointed to the revival
of Yiddish and declares that
"Yiddish is here now — and
it is ours to have." Editor
Landis declares:
"It aims to provide a
bridge between two cultures
and two worlds; to make au-
dible in English the voices
and judgments of Yiddish
writers, critics and thinkers,
past and present, here and
on five other continents where
Yiddish are spoken and writ-
ten . . . It aims to encour-
age the increasing numbers
of new scholars and critics
(needless to say, non-Jewish
as well as Jewish), by pro-
viding a forum for their
work. It aims to provide a
resource for faculty and stu-
dents 'engaged in the study
of Yiddish." •
This first issue opens with
the text of the address de-
livered by Israel Prime Min-
ister Golda Meir at the dedi-
cation of the Leivick House
in Israel.
A special feature is the
translation of a lengthy con-
versation, conducted in 1955,
between A. Tabachnik and
Jacob Glatstein.
Other features are: "A
Glatstein Portfolio" devoted
to the works of the eminent
Yiddish writer; A short
story, "The Lantuch," by
Isaac Bashevis Singer; Da-
vid Maris' "Films on the
Holocaust" and Percy Ma-
tenko's "Yitskhok Rudashev-
ski's 'Diary of the Vilna
Ghetto'."

REHOVOT — Several
aspects of chromosomal
behavior in plant sex cells,
which hold the key to the
development of higher yield-
ing strains, will be studied
with the aid of DM 400,000
(a bout $150,000) Volks-
wagen Foundation grant re-
cently received by Drs.
Moshe Feldman and Lydia
Avivi of Weizmann Insti-
tute's Plant Genetics Depart-
ment.
The Israeli researchers,
working in cooperation with
Prof. G. Robbelen of the
University of Gottingen, Ger-
many, will inquire into the
behavior of chromosomes in
the cells and sex organs of
plants, with particular em-
phasis on the interaction be-
tween the genetic material
in the chromosomes of the
male parent and in those of
the female parent.
By learning about, and
more efficiently controlling
this process, the researchers
may be able to develop
better strains of wheat —
the plant they are using as a
model—and of other crops.
Moreover, since there is a
basic similarity between
breeding in plants and in
animals, their work might
even have medical signifi-
cance.
It is known, for example,
that many genetic diseases
in man are the result of
chromosome abnormalities
caused 'by mishaps during
the breeding process. Under-
standing is thus of major
importance.
Two Weizmann Institute
researchers, Prof. Michael
Sela, Head of the Institute's
Chemical Immunology De-
partment, and Prof. David
Givol of the same depart-
ment, have received over
$300,000 in grants from the
National Institute of Allergy
and Infectious Diseases of
the U.S. National Institutes
of Health for studies on vari-
ous aspects of immunology.
Prof. Sela, with co-investi-
gators Drs. Sara Fuchs and
Edna Mazes, received a five-
year grant of $227,500 in or-

Prof. Givol, who received
a three-year grant of $80,-

structure of the 'antibody
combining site, i.e. the place
where the antibody and its
mortal enemy, the antigen,

demonstrated the possibility
of labeling of that site.
