Tay-Sachs Screening on Sunday

and Central European her-
itage. There is no cure or
known course of treatment
for the disease. Babies af-
flicted with Tay-Sachs
disease suffer horribly and
die by their fifth or sixth
year of life.

Shown at last Sunday's Tay-Sachs screening are,
from left, Norma Silver, associate administrator of Sinai
Hospital; Congressman James Blanchard; State Repre-
sentative Joseph Forbes; and Dr. Hyman S. Mellen.
Blanchard is co-sponsor of a bill in Congress that would
create a national Tay-Sachs testing program. The last
screening in the current series of local screenings will be
held Sunday at Cong. Beth Achim.

The last in the current
series of Tay-Sachs disease
screenings will be held 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at
Cong. Beth Achim in South-
field.
Last Sunday nearly 300
people of child-bearing age
took part in the screening
program, bringing to 2,500
the number of persons who
have been screened for Tay-
Sachs in the Detroit metro-
politan area.
Dr. Hyman S. Mellen, co-
chairman of the community

coordinating committee
warned that, "There are an
estimated 30,000 potential
carriers of this baby killing
disease among Detroit Je-
wry. This disease cannot be
treated. It cannot be cured.
But if we can screen the po-
tentials, we will find the
carriers. That can help us
eliminate the threat to fu-
ture generations."

Tay-Sachs is a disease
that strikes most often at
Jewish infants, the off-
spring of Jews of Eastern

The Tay-Sachs screening
program is being supported
financially by the Jewish
Welfare Federation with
cooperation from the March
of Dimes.
Dr. Mellen and Dr. Ralph
Cash, both of Sinai Hospital
of Detroit, are co-chairmen
of the community coordi-
nating committee; and Dr.
Lester Weiss of Henry Ford
Hospital is scientific direc
tor.

"It is a fact of life," says
Dr. Weiss, "that there are
carriers among us. We
have discovered more than
80 since the screenings
began last summer. A sim-
ple blood test gives posi-
tive proof as to who are the
carriers, and who cannot
transmit the disease. It
takes just a few minutes to
find out if you run the risk
for the children you will
bear in the future."

A donation is requested
from those screened, but no
one will be turned away.
For information about
screening procedures or the
next screening, phone Tay-
Sachs information, Sinai
Hospital, 272-6000.

Israel Labor Party Threatens to Split

TEL AVIV (JTA) — In-
tensive behind-the-scenes
efforts are being made to.
seal the widening cracks in
the Labor Party that
threaten Israel's largest pol-
itical party with a possible
break-down into its three
original constituent fac-
tions.
Although the Labor Par-
ty's internal rifts are noth-
ing new, they have been ov-
ershadowed by such recent
events as Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissinger's visit
and the Sixth Plenary As-
sembly of the World Jewish
Congress which was con-
cerned with unity between
Israel and Diaspora Jewry.
Now attention has been
shifted to the quarreling be-
tween Mapai, Achdut Ha'a-
voda and Rafi, some of
whose adherents seem
ready to dismember the
Labor Party if they can't
dominate it. Premier Yit-
zhak Rabin, leader of the

united Labor alignment, has
been able to devote little
time to internal politics.

Meanwhile, attempts
are being made to estab-
lish dialogues between the
rival factions in Labor to
avert a split. One such
forum was vetoed by for-
mer Finance Minister Pin-
has Sapir who, though
presently chairman of the
Jewish Agency and World
Zionist Organization Ex-
ecutives, still wields for-
midable power within the
Labor Party. Sapir has
called for the abolition of
the three Labor Party fac-
tions and argues that as
long as they exist, any dia-
logue is doomed to failure.

Nevertheless, a new pro-
posal has emerged for a
"Unity Forum" that would
include former Premier
Golda Meir, former Defense
Minister Moshe Dayan, for-
mer Agriculture Minister
Yosef Almogi and Moshe
Carmel, former minister of
transport. It would also in-
clude Histadrut Secretary
General Yehruham Meshel,
the various party secre-
taries and Sapir.
Such a powerful grouping
within the Labor Party and
representative of all of its
factions, is regarded as the
only one that can avert a
split.

Rabin is facing another
problem in filling vacan-
cies in his Cabinet. The
communications ministry
post has remained unfilled
since Rabin took office.
The recent resignation of
Information Minister
Aharon Yariv created an-
other vacancy. The pre-

mier is under severe pres-
sure from the new
immigrant lobby and Se-
phardic circles to name a
new minister from the
Oriental community.

The Labor Party, how-
ever, is not the only one fac-
ing serious internal difficul-
ties. The National Religious
Party is sharply split be-
tween its veteran leadership
and its "young guard." The
rift has been aggravated by
recent scandals involving
two leaders of the world
Mizrachi movement —
banker Tibor Rosenbaum
and Rabbi Bernard Berg-
man who is under investiga-
tion in the U.S. for alleged
fraud in connection with his
nursing homes there. Con-
ciliatory moves so far have
failed. The Likud opposition
is also having trouble with
its four-member Free Cen-
ter faction which has re-
cently split in two.

Jewish Youth
Revolution `Dead'

GROSSINGER, N.Y.
(JTA) — The major issues
which motivated the Jewish
youth rebellion in the late
1960s and early 1970s "are
now passe" and the Jewish
revolution "is dead," Aaron
Zucker, executive director of
the YM-YWHA of Bergen
County, said here at the
annual staff conference of
the Bnai Brith Youth Or-
ganization.
Zucker declared that the
most significant change in
Jewish young people during
the past two years has been
their "depoliticalization and
deradicalization."

Enrollment Up in Jewish Schools

NEW YORK (JTA) — The
American Association for
Jewish Education has esti-
mated that enrollment in
Jewish high schools in the
United States increased 76
percent in the past 15 years
to a record 75,000 students,
15,000 of them in all-day
Jewish high schools.
High school students now
represent about 20 percent
of the total enrollment in
American Jewish schools,
nearly three times their pro-
portion in the overall Jewish
school population in
1958-59.
The study also found that
critical elements which de-
termine the quality of
Jewish education are inade-
quate in most supplemen-
tary high schools which
meet after public hours
and/or on Sunday. They
comprise more than 80 per-
cent of the nation's Jewish
high schools, with an esti-
mated enrollment of nearly
60,000 students.
The AAJE study is de-
scribed in an article in the
latest edition of the Ameri-
can Jewish Year Book, pub-
lished by the American Jew-

reg. $1354250

ish Committee and the
Jewish Publication Society
of America. The 262 Jewish
high schools examined in
the study included 234 com-
munity-sponsored and con-
gregational, schools, repre-
senting all denominations in
Judaism, and 28 Orthodox
and Conservative day high
schools.

Peres Seeks
`Practical Zionism'

• Michigan's largest Cadillac dealer has the
lowest sticker prices in the U.S.A.

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Defense Minister Shimon
Peres said that Jerusalem
must be surrounded with a
chain of settlements and
Jewish industrial enter-
prises. He said such projects
were a top priority and a
manifestation of "practical
Zionism" in Israel.
He emphasized the need
to step up development
work in Galilee and the Ra-
fah salient. But he stressed
the importance of bolstering
the capital with surround-
ing settlements and indus-
trial zones, especially in
light of Arab settlements
and developments in Jerusa-
lem's environs.
