Dr. Leib's Zionist and Professional
Labors • Noted on 60th Birthday

Dr. Sidney Leib's Zionist
heritage from a pioneering
father is a major cause for
pride he will pass on to his
family when it gathers this
Saturday night to honor him
on his 60th birthday.
Dr. Leib views his current
Zionist dedication, as presi-
dent of the Zionist Organiza-
tion of America North Cen-
tral Region, to his father,
the late Joseph Leib, who
was the first secretary of
the Zionist Federation of
Romania and was among
the participants in the First
World Zionist Congress,
held in Basel, switzerland in
1897. As a mark of -conti-
nuity, Dr. Leib plans to at-
tend the forthcoming 29th
World Zionist Congress in
Jerusalem in February with
his wife Marian.

WASHINGTON (JTA)—
Egyptian Ambassador Ash-
raf Ghorbal and Israeli Am-
bassador Simha Dinitz, who
have been representing
their countries to the United
States for several years
without communicating
with each other, conversed
like old friends and toasted
each other at a private din-
ner Sunday.
"It's a genuinely warm
kind of evening," an official
of the American Broad-
casting Company which ar-
ranged the dinner at the
Madison Hotel said.

The dinner, hosted by
ABC-Television com-
mentator Barbara Walters,
was attended by about 50
persons, including Iranian
Ambassador Ardeshir Za-
hedi, former Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger,
House Speaker Thomas
O'Neill (D-Mass.), House
Majority Leader James
Wright (D-Tex. ), Sen. Abra-
ham Ribicoff (D-Conn. ),
Hamilton Jordan, President
Carter's chief political ad-
viser and Evan Dobell, the
State Department's chief
protocol officer.

emony Wednesday of the

Inducements for Yordim Asked

JERUSALEM (JTA)—A
special Knesset committee
recommended that yordim
who participated in the
Yom Kippur War should be
entitled to substantial ben-
efits similar to those grant-
ed new immigrants if they
return to Israel before the
nation marks the 31st anni-
versary of independence in
the spring of 1979.
Yordim are Israelis who
have left the country and
settled permanently abroad.
The committee, headed
by Assaf Yaguri of the
Democratic Movement for

Change, proposed that each
returnee would receive vou-
chers for tax _exemption on
various goods and rent sub-
sidies from the government.
Loans up to IL 80,000
would be granted toward
the purchase of a flat plus

an additional IL 30,000 if the
flat is in a development
area.
The returnees would also
be entitled to a year of free
hospitalization and one year
of free high school educa-
tion for their children.

Biologists Are In

JERUSALEM (JTA )-
For the Jewish parent who
always wanted the son to be
a doctor, that profession is
out in Israel. Being a biolo-
gist is very definitely in.
According to a survey
published by the Hebrew
University's sociology de-
partment after biologists in
prestige are dentists, law-
yers, judges, mayors and
physicists. Journalists were
down toward the bottom be-
hind army colonels, rabbis
and writers. Fishermen,
road pavers and shoeshiners
were at the bottom of the
list.
