Middle East Diplomacy to Focus on Israel, Jordan

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Political observers believe
the prospect of Israel-Jor-
dan talks will be the focus of
attention in Jerusalem and
Washington during the
coming weeks, with efforts
to explore the prospect in-
tensifying as the time for
King Hussein's visit to the
U.S. approaches. Hussein is
scheduled in Washington in
March.

While Premier Yitzhak
Rabin formally supports the
Geneva alternative, there
seems a large measure of
agreement in private that
Geneva is not a likely pros-
pect because of Soviet and
Syrian reluctance, and in-
sistence on the participation
of the Palestine Liberation
Organization.

The most practical possi-
bility for progress there-
fore, would seem to be with
Jordan. For this reason,
observers are watching with
special interest Hussein's
current program of tighten-
ing his ties with the West
Bank.
The talks between Israel
and Jordan which were
conducted directly by offi-
cials of the two countries
are aimed at giving the
relationship between Jor-
dan and the West Bank
more "legitimization" ac-
cording to reports here.

Fifty-seven faculty mem-
bers at Michigan State Uni-
versity, all recipients of the
MSU Distinguished Faculty
Award, wrote to President
Gerald Ford in January
praising the U.S.. stand in
the United Nations against
the November resolution
equating Zionism with rac-
ism.
The group asked the gov-
ernment to "exert all the
pressure it can, political and
economic, to alter the UN
position," and asked for a
continued U.S. policy in
support of Israel's right to
exist.

3 Writers to Get
Ussishkin Awards

JERUSALEM — The
Menahem Ussishkin Memo-
rial prize presented by the
Jewish National Fund for
outstanding works on Zion-
ist history, the land of Israel
and Hebrew literature will
be presented, this year, to
three writers.
The prize for Zionist re-
search will be presented to
Dr. Alex Bein, biographer of
Herzl and author of books
on the history of Jewish set-
tlement in Israel and other
subjects connected with na-
tional revival in the land of
Israel.
The poetry prize will be
given to poetess Dahlia Ra-
vikovich for her collection of
poems "All Your Breakers
and Waves."
For the first time, a prize
will be given posthumously,
honoring the late author
Shlomo Grodzensky for his
writings which appeared
recently.

One result is the reported
opening of branches of an
Amman bank in the West
Bank and East Jerusalem
so that Jordanian funds
can be channeled more
easily to West Bank Ar-
abs.

Hussein disbanded his
Parliament by royal decree
last weekend after a short
session to endorse his indef-
inite postponement of gen-
eral elections. The elections
were scheduled for March
23.
Parliament originally was
dissolved in November 1974
after a decision by Arab
heads of state in Rabat,
Morocco, making the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion the sole representative
of the Palestinians.
If Jordan held elections
on both banks of the Jordan

River Hussein would have
violated the will of Arab
leaders at Rabat by organiz-
ing elections for the Palesti-
nians on the West Bank.
But if he had held them
on the East Bank only, he
would, in the eyes of the
world, give up any claim
on the West Bank.
Meanwhile, in Amman,
Premier Zeid Rifai reshuf-
fled his 20-man cabinet, re-
placing four ministers and
retaining the others.

WSU Names Fencer

ger recently was inducted as
a charter member into
Wayne State University's
newly created Athletic Hall
of Fame.
Wayne State selected Kri-

Bernard Jacobson, Executive Vice-President of the
National Committee for Labor Israel, addressed a re-
ception and meeting of the members of the Michigan
Chapter of Histadrut Associates at the Furniture Club
yesterday.

Mr. Jacobson reviewed and discussed the events
which are now taking place in the Middle East and Is-
rael's relationship with its Arab neighbors. He stressed
that Histadrut continues, as it always has, to play a
major role in maintaining vital health and social serv-
ices for the majority of Israel's population. The need for
financial support is great, and Histadrut looks to its
American supportors for increased financial support.
