Tranquilty, Hike in Per Capita Income

`TEL AVIV (JTA) — De-
3nse Minister Shimon Peres,
sporting on a visit to the
i aza Strip, said that the
`Tip had been tranquil for
le past six months and that
, nual income per capita in
le Strip had reached IL
'1'0 (about $300), an increase

he described as a significant
achievement.
Peres was accompanied by
Gen. Yonna Efrat, coordina-
tor of activities in the admin-
istered areas, Gen. Raphael
Vardi and local commanders.
One of the topics discussed
in meetings with a group of

an attempt by Israeli author-
ities to form a roof munici-
pality for Gaza and its sur-
rounding refugees camps,
were sentenced to life im-
prisonment by a military tri-
bunal in Gaza.
The court expresed regret
it was unable to impose the
death penalty on the three
as their crimes warranted
such a punishment.
The three — Mouhammed
Salah el-Rukyou, a 24-year-
old teacher, Khaled Aabed
Attar, a 22-year-old teacher,
and Farouk Mouhammed Abu
Hassan, a 24-year-old law
student — early last year
murdered the chairman of
the El-Shatti Refugee Camp
Committee and later a priest,
Father Johanna Nimri, a
noted moderate community
leader in Gaza. They also
carried out other hostile ac-
tivities.
All three confessed to the
murders after reports, in
their own handwriting, were
presented to the court.
In these reports, captured
at the command post of Gaza
Strip terrorists, the three
described their actions in de-
tails.
Peres told the Knesset that
30 infiltrating terrorists had
been killed and five taken
prisoner by the army during
the first six months of this
year.
(Replying to parliamentary
questions, the minister said
507 'persons had been detain-
ed under administrative or-
der in the West Bank during
the same period and another
304 in the Gaza Strip.)

Russian Jews
Hold 14 Pct. of
PhD Degrees

NEW YORK — Jews play
an even more significant
role among senior Soviet
science personnel than had
been recognized, according
to correspondent Theodore
Shabad, back from Moscow
after representing the New
York Times there for several
years.
Recently published sta-
tistics in Moscow state that
Jews make up 1 per cent of
the population yet account
for 14 per cent of scientists
with doctoral degrees.
The ethnic breakdown Indi-
cates that 4,182 of the 29,806
people holding doctoral de-
grees at the end of 1973 were
Jews. They were exceeded
only by ethnic Russians, who
held 16,603.
The ratio of Russians to
Jews among doctorate hold-
ers was 4 to 1. In the Soviet
population of 250,000,000, the
ratio of Russians to Jews is
about 65 to 1.
The Soviet doctorate, in
American terms, represents
a more advanced academic
degree than the PhD, reflect-
ing several years of post-
doctoral study.
The statistical material
also reveals that Jews have
declined in numbers among
post-graduate students in re-
cent years. In 1970 there
were 4,945 and 3,456 at the
end of last year. The total
of graduate students has re-
mained steady at 99,000, with
60,000 Russians and 12,000
Ukrainians.

Sapir Will Tour U.S. Jewish
Communities on Behalf of UJA

NEW YORK (JTA)—Pin-
has Sapir, the newly elected
chairman of the Jewish
Agency and Israel's former
finance minister, will be
visiting communities across
the U. S. this month.
He will address leadership
meetings on behalf of the
United Jewish Appeal 1975
campaign. Gershon Avner,
secretary to the government
of Israel, and Ambassador
Ehud Avriel, special repre-
sentative of the prime minis-
ter's office, also will tour
major communities which
raised $1,000,000 and over
during 1974.
In announcing the visits of
the three dignitaries, Paul
Zuckerman, UJA general
chairman, said the purpose
was to give added impetus
to the early start of the 1975
campaign, which began at
the UJA executive committee
retreat in May.
"The basis of our 1975
campaign is not so much a
case of Jewish survival in
Israel, but a case of the
quality of that survival. And
these community meetings
will help to clarify the
American Jewish commu-
nity's role in assuring the
effectiveness of vital social
welfare and immigrant pro-
grams in Israel," Zuckerman
said.

S. American
Jews Potential
Source of Aliya

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Jewish Agency and World
Zionist Organization Chair-
man Pinhas Sapir said here
that he regarded South
American Jewry as "the
main potential for large-
scale aliya."
Addressing a WZO Execu-
tive session devoted to South
America's problems, Sapir
w a r n e d, however, there
would be no aliya from
South America without edu-
cational and informational
efforts designed to foster and
encourage it.
Sapir wants to go there
with new housing and em-
ployment plans to attract in-
creased immigration from
that part of the world.
In the last few weeks Sapir
held intensive talks with eco-
nomic specialists in order to
develop employment pro-
grams. Special attention is
being given to projects that

will challenge young immi-
grants. Arrangements are
also being made to provide
housing for the immigrants.
The aliya department's di-
rector, Uzi Narkiss, said that
the Argentinian "aliya move-
ment" encompassed 4,000
members, all of whom had
pledged to make aliya within
three years.
Also speaking of the chal-
lenge of aliya, Jewish Agency
Director Moshe Rivlin ex-
pressed the view that the
tightened bonds between Is-
rael and the Diaspora since
the Yom Kippur War would
be loosened quickly unless
there was wide-scale aliya —
encouraged by Israel and by
Israelis—and unless Israelis
did not determinedly develop
those bonds,
Rivlin called for the estab-
lishment of a mass move-
ment in Israel which would
foster ties with the Diaspora,
h e 1 p welcome immigrants
and forge contacts with
tourists and visitors.

Seven Jews Elected

OTTAWA (JTA) — Seven
Jews were elected to the
Canadian Parliament in the
recent general election, one
more than in 1972.
But David Lewis, leader of

was beaten in an upset in his
Toronto district.

Premier Elliott Trudeau's
Liberal Party, was elected a
new member of Parliament
from Vancouver.
Other Jewish MPs elected
are Jack Marshall of New-
foundland; Barney Danson,
Robert Kaplan, Herb Gray
and Max Saltzman in Ontario;
