termed the action "a most
happy coincidence," occur-

The Bicentennial was cel-
ebrated less formally and
more vocally at the Hebrew
University Sports Stadium
in Jerusalem. An estimated
10,000 people watched a
massive fireworks display,
saw "Yankee Doodle

films on giant screens, ate
hot dogs, drank Coke, flew
kites, sang and danced and
otherwise enjoyed them-
selves in an 11-hour spectac-
ular prepared and arranged
entirely by former U. S.
Army Col. Arthur Hoff-

The show began in the
afternoon with a parade of
a U.S. Marine band and
an assortment of U.S.
army veterans living in
Israel. Col. Hoffman
pledged any income from
the festivities for a schol-
arship fund in Israel.

In a special message to
President Ford, President
Katzir said, "July 4th is a
redletter day in mankind's
calendar and this auspicious
anniversary gives us the
opportunity to express to,_\
the United States deep(
appreciation and sincer(
hope for its happy future
and its ever growing contri-
bution to the better and
more peaceful world of our
joint prayers."

Rabin wrote to Ford,
"Sincere expressions of

is a celebration of democ-
racy, decency and freedom
everywhere. In gratitude
and in brotherhood we sa-

Weizmann Institute Sponsors
Cancer Research Workshops

REHOVOT — Attempts
to learn how tiny viruses
take over and control hu-
man cells were discussed
last week at the Weizmarin
Institute of Science, where
leading molecular biologists
from Israel, Western Eu-
rope and the United States
participated in the Euro-
pean Molecular Biology Or-
ganization Workshop on
• Symmetrical Transcription
and Post-Transcriptional
Participants heard some
40 papers on how viral genes
control the production of
viral proteins in an infected
cell. These studies not only
help show how viruses
themselves operate — and
thus throw light on viral ill-
nesses and even cancers in
animals — but also contrib-
ute to our understanding of
how genes function in nor-
mal cells as \vell.
At a workshop lecture it
\vas explained'that all or-
ganisms contain amounts of
genetic material vastly in
excess of that necessary for
producing the proteins they
require for normal function-
ing. One of the key chal-
lenges of modern biology is
to determine the role of all
this excess material and
how the cell selectively acti-
vates only those genes
which are relevant to its

Council beginning October
His research work deals
with the structure and

mechanism of the action of
enymes, especially those
which regulate metabolic
processes. In the course of
this work he has developed

phy," a new approach to the
purification of enzymes and
other biomolecules.

U.S. to Sell Planes
to Syria and Iraq

State Department said last
week that the U.S. is pre-
pared to go ahead with the
sale of civilian versions of
the Lockheed C-130 military
transport planes to Syria
and Iraq despite expressions
of concern by the Israel Em-
bassy over the deal.
"It is a standard, normal
commercial transaction,"
Department spokesman
Robert Funseth told report-
The U.S. agreed earli

Lockheed planned to sell
four L-100s — two to Syria
and two to Iraq — with an
option to sell two more to
each country.
