The Weizmann Institute Hosts
Geneticists, Gets New Study

REHOVOT — The Weiz-
mann Institute of Science is
hosting a major interna-
tional conference on popula-
tion genetics and ecology,-
while at the same time it is
receiving recognition for
several of its research pro-
The 10-day conference
has brought together ex-
perts to examine the inter-
active effects of migration,
mutation and natural selec-
tion pressures, mating and
behavioral patterns genetic
forms and mechanisms of
sexuality, recombination
and other phenomena in-
volved in the evolutionary
development of animals and
Improved mathematical
definitions of these proc-
esses and careful evaluation
of field and laboratory data
would greatly aid the solu-
tion of many practical and
theoretical challenges, such
as those of practical geneti-
cists involved in crop breed-
ing, doctors engaged in ge-
netic counselling,
environmentalists, and evo-
lutionist theoreticians.

Some 40 scientists from
Europe, North America
and Australia have joined
20 of their Israeli col-
leagues in discussing var-
ious aspects of theoretical
and practical population
genetics and ecology.

Meanwhile, the factors

identified as the com-

forces in Kfar Shouba re-

with Israeli troops who at-
tacked bases which had
been used to launch death
missions across the border
into Israel.
According to the newspa-
per, the unnamed com-
mander said:
"The suicide actions have
a great effect on the mind of
the Israeli soldier and the
common man in our land.
Asked whether there was
any coordination between
the various fedayeen groups
in south Lebanon, the com-
mander replied:
"There was complete
coordination between all the
factions in the Kfar Shouba
area, particularly between
the Popular Front, Fatah
and the General Command.

Habash Shuns
Peace Talks

TEL AVIV — In an inter-
view published in the Beirut
newspaper Al Bayrak,
George Habash, the leader
of the Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine, said
the fedayeen leadership
should "capitalize on what
has happened and remove it-
self completely from the
settlement framework that
has been presented (at Ge-
neva), and return to the na-
tional Palestinian position
as it has been determined by
our people's struggle over
dozens of years," i*was re-
ported here.
"By this I mean that there
is a minimal Palestinian
national position. This mini-
mum is the rejection of any
recognition of the Zionist
entity, a refusal to negotiate
with it and a strengthening
of faith in our masses' abil-
ity to shatter this entity.
"We must clearly and
openly declare our rejection
of any settlement based on
the continued existence of
this foreign entity."

Israel Has Ample
Gas Mask Supply

Should the Arabs attack Is-
rael's population centers
there are enough gas masks
stocked to equip most of the
country's 3.1 million citi-
zens, Brig. Gen. Yitzhak
Zeid, the civil defense com-
mander, said this week:
He also said that Israel
had spent more on air raid
shelters since the disengage-
ment agreements a year ago
than in the seven previous

tions in a historical narra-
tive, avoiding the moral and
metaphysical abstractions
that have previously ob
scured the subject.

The first part of the
book, "The Final Solu-
tion," meticulously rec-
ords the origins and
growth of the ideology that
underlay the plan to an-
nihilate the Jews. It also
shows how, once - the Na-
tional Socialists came to
power, Hitler and the SS
