Change in UN Resolve Sought

TUNIS (ZINS) — The
U.S. government intends to
introduce two fundamental
changes in UN Security
Resolution 242.
The first concerns the
withdrawal by Israel to the
armistice lines preceding
the Six-Day War, with
"insubstantial boundary
changes." The UN wording
now speaks of a withdrawal
from "territories," following
the establishment for Israel
of "secure and recognized
boundaries."
The second change is an
addition to the paragraph
which speaks of the return
of the Palestinians to a
"national homeland" and
the right of self-determina-
tion, short of specifying a
"Palestinian Arab state," or
the• "Palestinian Liberation
Organization."
These details were sup-
plied in a report filed by an

This prize, presented
annually for the past 18
years, honors the memory
of the late Leib Yaffe,
long-time director of
Keren Hayesod, who was
killed in the terrorist at-
tack on the Jewish Agency
compound in 1948.

Prof. Carpi's book con-
tains the ledger kept by the
council of the Jewish com-
munity of Padua in Italy,
compiled between 1577 and
1603. The ledger consists of
the Council's resolutions,

ture and organization,
Prof. Carpi was born in
Milano in 1926. He immi-
grated to Israel in 1945, took
part in Israel's War of Inde-
pendence, and is today a
major in Israel's Army Re-
serves. He was educated at
Hebrew University, getting
his doctorate in 1967. He
holds several important
posts at Tel Aviv University,
where he was instrumental
in founding the Chaim
Weizmann Institute for the
Study of Zionism.

Hebrew U. Researchers Study
Way to Improve Orange Yield

JERUSALEM — Scien-
tists at the Hebrew Univer-
sity's faculty, of agriculture
in Rehovot have found a way
to improve the quality of
oranges by spraying the
groves with synthetic
growth retardants during
the early stages of the
fruits' growth, thereby in-
creasing the quantities suit-
able for export.
Shamouti (Jaffa) oranges
must hold their own in the
highly competitive interga-
_ tional market where rough-
ness of the orange peel seri-
ously detracts from their
desirability. Since many of
the Israeli oranges are
grown in non-optimal areas,
there is a loss of up to 40
percent in the total exporta-
ble yield due to peel rough-
ness.
Research at the faculty's
department of horticulture,
funded in part by the minis-
try of agriculture, has re-
versed some of nature's neg-
ative effects that limit the
salability of oranges. Al-
though it appears impossi-
ble to totally eliminate peel
roughness by growth regu-
lators researchers have de-
veloped the means to control
the roughness sufficiently
so that nearly all of the fruit
obtains export quality.

They found \ that groves
must be sprayed at an
