"U.S. FOREIGN POLICY
IN THE MIDDLE-EAST"

The 20th Annual Dinner of the Detroit Friends of Yeshiva University has
the distinction of being among the University's very first major events in
the nation's Bicentennial. In its 200th year, the nation looks forward to
the fulfillment of its democratic heritage. Now entering its 90th year,
Yeshiva University, in the framework of that democracy, looks forward
to the fulfillment of its educational heritage in service to the Jewish com-
munity and the nation.
In the course of 90 years, many individuals have been honored for
their leadership in the growth of Yeshiva University, and in the days to
come many more will be so honored. In its past, present and future, the
University is above all the continuing creation of its one and great en-
dowment . . . the Jewish community . . . an endowment epitomized by the
Detroit Friends of Yeshiva University, especially those honored as Science
Fellows and Master Builders:

strong appeal for assistance
in the drive to save the New
York newspaper.
An
organization,
Friends of the Forward,
has been formed in an ef-
fort to raise $250,000.
Smolar said that declining
circulation is attributed to
a decline in Jewish immi-
gration and rising printinr -
costs.
The Forward sold its
land-mark building in New
York a few years ago to help
raise funds.
The paper has a distin-
guished 78-year history of
helping its readers. Its "A
Bintl Brief" — A Bundle of
Letters — column in which
readers' questions were an-
swered was a mainstay. It
also encouraged a number
of Yiddish authors and
championed socialist
causes.

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
Ashkelon oil port was re-
opened Sunday, ending a
20-day strike by employes of
the Eilat-Ashkelon pipeline
company's marine division
that cost the government an
estimated $2 million in
waiting fees alone for tank-
ers that were prevented
from loading oil.
Thirteen of the strikers,
who had spent the past
week in commandeered
company boats outside Ash-
kelon harbor, came ashore
and gave themselves up to
police.

Jordan Fortifies
East Bank Area

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
Jordanian Army is speeding
up its fortifications. along
the east banks of the Jordan
River facing Israel's Beisan
Valley and in the area be-
tween Beisan and Tiberias
on the Sea of Galilee. Israel
also is carrying out major
fortification work on its side
of the border in these re-
gions and on the Golan
Heights, it was reported.
On the Golan Heights, a
group of Russian Jews from
the remote Tatai region of
the southern Caucasus is
employed building Israeli
fortifications on the Golan
Heights. They speak a
special dialect of their re-
gion which is located near
the junction of the Russian,
Turkish and Iranian bor-
ders.

Quebec Approves
Hebrew Classes

MONTREAL (JTA) —
The Quebec education de-
partment has approved, on
an experimental basis, as
credit courses the Hebrew
language and literature
classes given by Montreal
Hebrew day schools in high
school grades four and five.
The courses will count for
two credits each and will ap-
pear on the student's sec-
ondary certificate which is
sent to Canadian colleges

The strike began after the
company engaged an out-
side contractor to moor and
service tankers in the Ash-
kelon oil port and dismissed
several marine division em-
ployes and transferred oth-
ers.
Strikers took over com-
pany motorboats and for-
cibly prevented the con-
tractor's crews from
approaching the tankers.
Their action at one point
precipitated a clash with
police escort boats, several
of which were rammed by
the strikers' boats.
The pipeline company
announced last week that it
was shutting down opera-
tions for the duration of the
walkout. The strikers re-
mained in the boats, receiv-
ing supplies from fellow-
strikers ashore until choppy
seas forced them to abandon
their blockade.

Israel Plans
Port at Yamit

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Transport Minister Gad
Yaacobi disclosed that the
government plans to built a
third deep-water harbor on
Israel's Mediterranean coast
and that the 'best site is at
Yamit in the Pithat Rafiah
region between the Gaza
Strip and northern Sinai.
Yaacobi said the addi.
tional harbor would be
needed by the mid 1980's.
He said it would taker three
years to study and plan the
project and eight years to
built the harbor.
Israel's present deep-wa-
ter harbors are at Haifa and
Ashkelon.
The Rafiah area has
been the subject of contro-
versy since the army ap-
propriated it several years
ago as a security zone,
forcing the relocation of
Bedouin" tribes in the re-
gion.
Yaacobi stressed that the
area will remain under Is-
raeli control and in fact, has
never entered into the de-
bates over the future of the
