Civil liberties groups, Zion-

right to exist as a sovereign
nation paid tribute to the
memory of former U. S.
Senator Wayne Morse who
died Monday.
In statements of tribute, it
was recalled that Senator

half of Zionism, in his sup-
port of Israel Bonds and the
United Jewish Appeal.
Fearless, outspoken, firm
in his denunciation of anti-
Semitism and anti-Israelism,
Senator Morse was equally
vocal in his opposition to
war. He and the late Senator
Ernest Gruening were the
only outright initial oppo-
nents of the Vietnam war.
They were the only ones to
oppose the Tonkin Gulf Reso-
lution which gave President
Johnson unqualified power to
carry on the Vietnam war.
Senator Morse spoke a
number of times in Detroit
in behalf or Israel Bonds and
other .occasions in support of
Jewish causes.

New Tor a Change' Israeli
Movement Arouses Disputes

TEL AVIV (JTA) — A
constituent meeting held here
of the Lashinouy (For a
Change) Movement has
sparked controversy in Israel
with a manifesto urging the
government to hold talks
with the Palestinians. The
movement is headed by Prof.
Amnon Rubinstein, dean of
the Tel Aviv University Law
School, and Mordehai Vir-
shuvski, legal adviser to the
Tel Aviv municipality.
Three leaders of Likud
who signed the manifesto
were denounced for doing so
by members of Herut, one
of the parties in Likud. Tel
Aviv Mayor Shlomo Lahat
and Ramat Gan Mayor Is-
rael Peled, both members of
the Liberal Party in Likud,
and Herut –MK Benjamin
Halevi signed the manifesto,
as did Labor and Inde-
pendent Liberal Party mem-
bers.
Herut members assailed
the two mayors for signing
the manifesto without ap-
proval from Likud on whose
ticket they were elected. But
the Herut Party was par-
ticularly shocked by Dr. Ha-
levi's signing, since he had
resigned from the Supreme
Court to join Herut because
he believed that Israel should
not engage in further with-
drawals. Herut reportedly
was bewildered by what its
leaders considered a total
reversal by Dr. Halevi from
hawk to dove.
Lashinouy was formed ini-
tially by academicians and
various protest groups or-
ganized by veterans after the
Yom Kippur War. But after
the other groups faded away,
the academicians decided to
proceed with organizing the
movement and going to the
people with a program de-
scribed by Rubinstein as
"middle way," between Is-
raelis opposed to giving up
any of the administered
areas and those "ready to
give up everything."
He said the movement
shared the views of those
"who think in terms of mod-
ern weapons and the danger
of guerrilla warfare" and
therefore opposed return to
the pre-Six-Day War borders.
He said the movement stood

for a permanent buffer 'zone
in the Sinai. The movement
favors return to Arab rule of
the Gaza Strip and Judea
and Samaria in the West
Bank but holds that Israel,
in recognizing the right of
West Bank Arabs to self-
determination must be as-
s u r e d the possibility of
acting efficiently against
acts of sabotage, Rubinstein
said.
He said Jerusalem must
remain Israel's capital, an
undivided city under Israel's
rule, but there must be a
special status for the holy
places and the Arab section
of the city. Internally, he
said, the movement supports
Orthodox control of marriage
but demands recognition of
the right of marriage for
those Jews barred from mar-
riage by Jewish religious
law.
Delegates to the constituent
meeting were greeted by
Lahat, representatives of the
Independent Liberals who
claimed the new movement
was close to them in views,
the Civil Rights Party and
others. They nominated dele-
gates to a central body.
Twenty more delegates will
be elected by branches and
20 others were named by the
movement's founders.
