Communist-Backed Candidate Elected Nazareth Mayor

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Tewfik Ziad, the Commun-
ist-backed candidate, was
elected mayor of Nazareth
Tuesday by an overwhelm-
ing two-thirds majority of
the votes.
His Democratic front, an
alliance of the pro-Moscow
Rakah Communists and lo-
cal -professionals and aca-
demicians, captured 11 of
the 17 city council seats as-
suring Communist control
of the largest Arab city in
Israel. The Labor Party won
four seats and a list affi-

voters went to the polls de-

spite heavy rains. The voting
was orderly and the police
re-enforcements sent into
Nazareth had little to do.
The Communist list
swept the field, taking be-
tween 70-80 percent of the
votes cast at each of the 26
polling stations. When the
results were announced,
Ziad and his jubilant sup-
porters drove through the
rain drenched city in a
shouting, horn-honking
victory celebration.
The victory of Ziad, who is
a Rakah member of the
Knesset, was a foregone
conclusion even before the

general Shumuel Lalkin
said.
Israel was chosen as the
place for the champion-
ships at the last congress of
the 20-nation Asian Weigh-
tlifting Federation (AWF),
held during last year's Teh-
eran Asian Games.
Both Israbl and Iraq
applied to host the meet,
but Israel was chosen by
seven votes to five. The
AWF membership in-
cludes Iraq, Lebanon and
Syria, as well as Indonesia
and Pakistan, with which
Jerusalem has no diplo-
matic relations.
The only definite entries
for the tournament along
With Israel were Australia,
Thailand and the Philip-
pines, all of which planned
to send very small teams,
Lalkin reported.
According to the Jerusa-
lem Post, under the cir-
cumstances, it was not felt
worthwhile to go ahead with
the championships, sched-
uled to inaugurate what was
planned to be an annual
event.

LONDON (JTA) — Dr.
Bendrich Bass, president of
the Federation of Jewish
Communities in Bohemia
and Moravia, brought greet-
ings from the Czechoslova-
kia Jewish community to
the meeting in London of
the European branch of the
World Jewish Congress.
This was the first time in
years that a Czech Jewish
representative came to the
West to attend such a gath-
ering.
The leader of the remtiant
of the once-great Czech Jew-
ish community, who at-
tended the meeting last
week as an observer, said
that the 7,000 Jews cur-
rently residing in Czechoslo-
vakia receive religious, cul-
tural and welfare services
from the Federation.
Dr. Bass said that the
federation receives sup-
port from the Czech au-
thorities who are urging
the federation to find a
new rabbi. The commu-
nity, he reported, has been
without a spiritual leader
since Rabbi Sicher died at
the age of 95• more than
five years ago.
The federation is also bur-
dened with caring for 400
cemeteries, most of which
are in a state of neglect, Dr.
Bass said. They are situated
in areas where Jews had
long vanished.
Samuel Toledano, vice
president of the Madrid
Jewish community, who at-
tended the WJCongress
meeting as head of the
Spanish delegation, said
that Spanish Jews are
deeply interested in having
post-Franco Spain become
properly integrated into
Europe.
He said _Spain's 10,000
Jews enjoyed prosperity and
equality in religious rights.
They live in 11 communities,
With Madrid the largest cen-
ter with 3,000 Jews.
The • Spanish Jewish
leader said they were pro-
foundly interested in

voting began. The clumsy,
heavy-handed attempts by
Israeli government officials
to influence Nazareth voters
to reject the Communist list
in favor of the Labor Party-
backed candidate, George'
Sa'ad, backfired and proba-
bly increased the size of
Ziad's victory, Israeli ob-
servers said.

BACKGAMMON

TEL AVIV — The going
price for a call-girl is evi-
dently $45 these days, ac-
cording to the Tel Aviv pol-
ice, who say they cracked a
call-girl -ring operating out
of a "matrimonial" agency
and using luxury hotels in
the city for assignations.
A police spokesman told
The Jerusalem- Post that a
Rehov Trumpeldor flat —
formerly a massage parlor
but now advertising itself -in
newspapers as a matrimon-
ial agency — had been
raided.

The ministers of labor
housing and education cam-
paigned recently in Naza-
reth to try to convince the
voters that a communist vic-
tory would politicize the
town at the expense of local
issues and pr-oblems.
