Response to Meir Cabinet Selection Marked by Knesset Rancor

(Continued from Page 1)

Shapiro, who resigned sev-
eral months ago; Shlomo
Rosen, who will replace
Natan Peled as absorption
minister; Itzhak Rabin, re-
placing Yosef Almogi as
minister of labor; Aharon
!Juan, communications min-
ister; and Yehoshua Rabino-
witz, who replaces Zeev
Sharef as housing minister.
The Independent Liberal
Party will receive a second
cabinet seat, though without
portfolio, which is going to
Gideon Hausner.
Among the incumbents who
will sit in the new cabinet,
Shim on Peres has been
switched from transport min-
ister to the newly created
post of minister of informa-
tion. The others will retain
their present portfolios. They
are: Golda Meir, premier;
Yigal Allon, deputy premier
and minister of education;
Moshe Dayan, defense minis-
ter; Abba Eban, foreign min-
ister; Pinhas Sapir, finance
minister; Victor Shemtov,
minister of health; Haim
Gvati, minister of agricul-
ture; Haim Barley', minister
of commerce and industry;
Shlomo Hillel, minister of
police; Moshe Kol, minister
of tourism: and Israel Galili,
Widespread dissatisfaction
with the Meir government
and with her key ministers,
Moshe Dayan and Shimon
Peres, was in evidence.
Dayan's popularity dropped
because of his abandonment
of advocacy of a national
unity government as pro-
posed by Likud leader Mena-
hem Begin.
Mapam's Knesseters de-
cided that they would not
take nart in the Labor Align-
ment faction meetings un-
less and until Mapam's de-
mand for a third minister is
met. Mapam complained that
while the National Religious
Party and the Independent

Liberal Party increased their
cabinet representation. Ma-
pam remained static with two
ministers—and was therefore
prejudiced. The NRP has 10
Knesset seats and four min-
istries; and ILP has four
Knesset seats and two min-
istries; and Mapam has sev-
en Knesset seats.
Mapam Secretary General
Meir Talmi stressed that
the party would do nothing
to endanger the government,
but on the other hand would
refuse to cooperate with La-
bor in the alignment or nor-
mal Knesset business. Thus
Mapam did not take part in
an Alignment faction meeting
Monday which recommended
Yitzhak Navon (ex-Rafi) as
chairman of the foreign af-
fairs and defense committee
instead of Haim Zadok, the
new justice minister.
Gen. Ariel Sharon, the
Likud founder and a popular
hero of the Yom Kippur War,
accused Dayan of exploiting
the situaton on the Syrian
front which, Sharon claimed,
was no worse than others
that have arisen since the
Yom Kippur War and which
he said will continue "every
time we cannot satisfy the
Arab demands."
Begin claimed on a tele-
vision interview that if Day-
an and Peres had held out for
a unity government it would
have come about.
Weekend newspapers car-
ried dozens of articles equal-
ly critical of Meir and Day-
an and accusing them of ex-
ploiting the Syrian scare for
political purposes.

poet, wrote in Yediot Ahronot

Theory of Cell Communication
Approached by Hebrew U. Team

JERUSALEM — A team of
biological chemists at the
Hebrew University, headed
by Profs. Michael Schramm
and Zvi Selinger, has taken
an important step in discov-
ering the means whereby
cells pass vital chemical
messages among themselves.
For years, scientists have
examined the cell through
electron microscopes, ob-
serving curious black dots
which they knew contained
chemical information in
Previously, it was believed
that upon receipt of the
proper stimulus from a sub-
stance known as cyclic AMP
these dots gathered at the
cell's excretory canal (the
lumen) when the message-
bearing chemical simply dif-
fused through the cell wall.
On examining cells in the
salivary glands of rats —
which have a structure simi-
lar to human salivary gland
cells — the team discovered
that upon activation with
cyclic AMP the little black
dots (secretory granules)
grow extensions pointing to-
ward the cell's exit-canal.
After a short time, these
tiny extensions (pseudopods)
actually merge with the
