Israeli Women Suffer High
Rate of Breast Cancer


NEW YORK— Israel has
one of the highest -rates of
breast cancer in the world.
Close to 600 Israeli women
contract the disease each
year and about half of them_
die as a result. Many V
these women could have
been saved through early
detection and treatment.
The Shifra Kutner Early
Breast Cancer Detection
Clinic in Jerusalem's Shaare
Zedek Hospital, which has
just completed three years
f service, has taken on the
hallenge of educating Is
raeli women to the need for
regular cancer check-ups
and speedy' treatment.
Functioning inconjunc-
tion with the Israel Cancer
Society, the_clinic is helping
to revolutionize the ap-
proach to cancer"treatment
in Israel. It is the first such
hospital-based clinic in the
center of Jerusalem.


Unlike the local clinics
which must refer women
to other institutions for
treatment, the Shifra Kut-
ner Clinic can make use of
-Shaare Zedek's hospital
facilities and provide the

patient with all the serv-
ices right on the premises.
The same doctor who per-
forms the initial examina-
tion can follow through
with treatment and sur-
gery if necessary.

The clinic is free and open
to any woman who walks in
off the street and asks for
an examination.
Since its inception in Jan-
uary 1972 the clinic has
been operating at capacity
with'reception hours in the
evenings so that work4ng
women as well as all others
over 35 years of age might
conveniently utilize this life _
saving facility. The clinic
open to all women, and re-
porting for examinations
are Arabs, - Jews, Moslems
and Christians and no refer-
rals are necessary.
The facility is named in
memory of Shifra Kutner,
the late wife of Rabbi Sey-
mour Kutner who was ac-
tive all her life in civic and
charitable activities in
Memphis, Tenn. The project
now receives the continuous
support of the Memphis
Jewish Community.

McGovern Denies He Urged
U.S. Recognition of PLO

1Senator George McGovern
(D-S.D.) has relayed word to
his office in the Capitol that
he has not made any of the
statements attributed to
him on his meeting with
PLO chief Yasir Arafat, a
McGovern press aide re-
The aide said that accord-
ing to McGovern "any state-
ments attributed to him re-
garding his meeting with
Arafat are not reliable be-
cause he has made'no state-
ment." The aide also said
the questions attributed to
the Democratic Party's
presidential nominee in
1972 by Middle Eastern
media are "incorrect."
McGovern, he said, does
not plan to make "any offi-
cial statement" about his
. Middle East travels until he
returns to Washington
Wednesday and holds a
news conference. Israel will
be the last stop on his tour.
He will be there Sun-d-ay
- through Tuesday.

According to the aide,
McGovern spoke with an
administrative official in
his office here Tuesday
regarding news- reports
ncerning his 90-minute
eeting with Arafat in
Beirut including one by
the Palestinian news
agency WAFA that
"American policy should
take into serious consider-
ation the question of rec-
ognizing the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization."



McGovern also was
quoted by the Beirut news-
paper An- Nahar as saying it
was "imperative for some
kind of Palestinian national
entitity to emerge because it
is-difficult to achieve stabil-
ity in the area unless the
Palestinians exercise an ef-
ficient political existence."
"These reports include
statements I did not make,

they put words in my
mouth," McGo-vern's press
aide reported the senator
as saying. The aide
stressed that the half dozen
American media persons in
McGovern's press aide en-
tourage were not permitted
to attend the Arafat-Mc-
Govern meeting and only
Lebanese newsmen were
allowed to be present. -
Traveling as chairman of
the Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee's subcom-
mittee on Middle Eastern
affairs, McGovern included
Saudi Arabia, Jordan,
Syria, Egypt,- Iran and Le-
banon on his tour. Arafat
has praised McGovern for
being "the first responsible
American official" to visit
him publicly, according to
an interview in the Wash-
ington Post.
