Betel-Pesselnick
Troth Announced

Kibutz Plans
Embarrass Mapam

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Ki-
__ butz Haartzi, the Mapam-
sponsored kibutz move-
ment, has embarrassed
Mapam;s urban circles by
announcing its intention to
establish settlements in the
Pithat Rafah region, an
area sequestered by Israeli
authorities several years
ago to provide a buffer be-
tween the Gaza Strip and
Sinai.

MISS DAHLIA BETEL
Mr. and Mrs. Sam Betel
of Potomac Dr., Southfield,
announce the engagement
of their daughter Dahlia to
Daniel Pesselnick, son of
Mr. and Mrs. Seymour Pes-
selnick of Shelley Ave.,
Southfield.
Miss Betel is a senior at
Wayne State University's
school of nursing. Her
fiance was graduated from
Wayne State with a BA de-
gree in journalism.
An October wedding . is
planned.

Honesty may be dear bought
but can never be a dear penny-
worth.

Mapam was sharply criti-
cal of that move which re-
quired dispossession of Be-
douin tribes in the region,
and has always demanded
that the Bedouins be al-
lowed to return to their
lands.

Plans to place settlements
in the area were seem in
some Mapam quarters as an
erosion of the party's posi-
tion on the issue. Kibutz
Haartzi has established no
new settlements in recent
years, concentrating instead
on the development of estab-
lished kibutzim.

Later, the Kibutz Haartzi
clarified the earlier state-
ment and said no new settle-
ment would be established
until the Bedouins were al-
lowed to return to their
lands.

Israeli POW's Story Told

U.S. Aid for Israel Reactor
Expected to Be Continued

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The joint Congressional
Committee on Atomic En-
ergy has unanimously rec-
ommended - to both the Sen-
ate and House to extend for
two more years the U.S.
nuclear research program
that involves Israel's reactor
at Sirac, about 30 miles
from Tel Aviv.

Both branches of Con-
gress were expected to ac-
cept the recommendation.
This joint program has
been in operation since the
reactor was set up during
the Eisenhower Adminis-
tration. The principal U.S.
share in the program at pre-
sent is the sale of enriched

fuel to Israel. The program
is_ shielded by the Interna-
tional Atomic Energy Agen-
cy's safeguards and a bila-
teral U.S.-Israel agreement
on safeguards that back up
those of the IAEA.
The reactor is described
as extremely small and used
strictly for research, partic-
ularly for medical and agri-
cultural purposes, such as
physics measurements and
food preservation.
The Sirac station is apart
from the Dimona atomic
project near Beersheba
which was established in
1963. The Dimona reactor
was probably made in
France and is five times the
site of the Sirac device.
