"Why did you on .both

"It is the source of good

nothing worse."

Jewish press around the
world and increase its in-
fluence and strength.
He suggested the estab-
lishment of an institute
for journalistic informa-
tion, to be called a "Media
Resources Center," in
cooperation with the
Jewish Agency's infor-
mation department, the
Foreign Ministry and the
World Jewish Congress.
He said its aim would be
to provide material on
Jewish topics and Zionist
subjects.
Zimuki said the For-
eign Ministry is prepared
to organize regional
seminars for the _ex-
change of information,
observations and points
of view. He also proposed
another project which
would grant scholarships
to Jewish journalists
abroad to work on Israeli
newspapers and send
young Israeli journalists
to work for a time on
Jewish newspapers over-
seas.
Meanwhile,
strong
curbs on the press were
demanded in the Knesset
last week in the aftermath
of the suicide of Housing
Minister Avraham Ofer.
The Israeli news media
was taken to task for "the
vile effects of libel, slan-
der and gossip."
Ofer, who had been
under police investiga-
tion for alleged illegal
acts when he headed the
Histadrut housing com-
pany Shikun Ovdim, had
complained to friends be-
fore his death that he was
a victim of harassment by
the press.
Justice Minister Haim
Zadok observed that
freedom of the press is a
fundamental right but
not an absolute one. He
noted that the Knesset's
legal committee is pres-
ently considering two
private members bills
that would bar newspa-
pers from publishing the
name of any person
charged with an offense
until the person is in-
dicted or unless disclo-
sure was clearly in the
public interest.
Zadok said newspaper
editors opposed these
measures just as they
had opposed the libel law
enacted 10 years ago.
However, he conceded
that "the libel law has not
succeeded in protecting
the reputation and good
name of citizens" because
"libel trials often take
years and usually gener-
ate more unpleasantness
than the original libel."
In a related develop-
ment, Jewish Agency
Treasurer Leon Dulzin
told the international con-
ference of Jewish jour-
nalists that there was seri-
ous concern in Israel that
Soviet authorities might
use the high rate of
"drop-outs" among Jews
leaving the USSR with Is-
raeli visas as an excuse to
reduce the number of visas
granted "or even totally
close down the gates for
Jews."
Dulzin disclosed that
until now, Israel has sent
186,000 visas to the Soviet
Union at the request of
Jews there. The Soviet
visa offices will issue exit
permits only if the appli-

cations are accompanied
by Israeli visas.
Dulzin said that in
1976, 14,261 Jews left the
USSR but only 51 percent
of them came to Israel.
The rest dropped out in
Vienna and many are now
in Rome waiting for entry
permits for the United
States, he said.
The danger is, Dulzin
said, that the Soviet au-
thorities may take ad-

vantage of the fact that
the permits given to Jews
applying for emigration
state specifically that
their destination is Is-
rael. The high percentage
who do not go to Israel
could 'give the Soviets a
pretext to stifle the entire
emigration movement, he
warned. Therefore, some
sort of solution must be
found to the "drop-out"
problem, he said.
