Kollek Wants Expansion of Jerusalem Boundaries

tj•
JERUSALEM (JTA)—May-
or Teddy Kollek called Sun-
day night for the expansion
of Jerusalem's boundaries to
the north and east.
He said such expansion was
the only apparent way to
preserve the areas surround-
ing the city and to prevent
Jerusalem's built up area
from merging with the Arab
city of Ramallah north of
Jerusalem.
The statement, at a meet-
ing of the city council, was
triggered by the dispute over
a new suburb proposed for
the north slope of Nebi Sam-
wil by Defense Minister Mo-
she Dayan.
Deputy Mayor Yehoshua
Matza of Gahal attacked
Kollek's opposition to the
suburb, which Matza said
was necessary from a politi-
cal point of view since it ex-
tended the Jewish presence



north of Jerusalem.
Kollek took the wind out of
that argument by proposing
that the municipal boundaries
be extended to embrace Nebi
Samwil. presently about one
kilometer north of the city
line. If this were done, he
said, even Matza would prob-
ably agree to preserve the
Nebi Samwil area as a park
rather than to develop a sub-
urb on it. since the matter
could then be dealt with as
one of urban planning.
Revised boundaries, Kollek
said, should include green
belt areas around the city
and industrial sites to the
east—an apparent reference
to the Anatot area.
The mayor did not specif-
ically mention expansion to
the south in the direction of
Bethlehem. but the new
boundaries should give Jeru-
salem a total area of 200

Striking Seamen Hit
Shipping Companies

TEL AVIV (JTA)—A strike
by some 1,500 seamen pre-
vented 11 Israeli ships from
loading or unloading Monday.
The strike which began Aug.
3 originally hit only ships
sailing from Israel but spread
to include incoming ships.
Transport Minister Shi-
mon Peres, who was em-
powered to issue "back to
work" orders, said he would
use the power only if the
strike affected the import of
essential commodities or if
shipping in the Gulf of Eilat
was blocked.
Peres said that the 86 per
cent wage increase sought
by the seamen would open
a crack in the government's
wage policy that would un-
dermine all labor agreements.
