NEW YORK — Jewish-
American summer_ camps
will serve increasing num-
bers of children from
single-parent families, ac-
cording to two surveys con-
ducted recently by the
Jewish Welfare Board.
The percentage of such
children is rising at approx-
imately 4-5 percent a year,
indicating that the resident
camp is seen as an impor-
tant vehicle for caring for
children whose home situa-
tion requires custodial serv-
ices in the summer," says
the report.

Bus Driver Breaks. Stereotypes

By MOSHE RON

The Jewish News Special
Israel Correspondent

TEL AVIV — Even in Is-
rael a woman driver of a
passenger bus is a sensa-

tion.

Shula Elsam from Kiryat
Bialik near Haifa is one of
them. She passed a test as
driver and today is driving
an Egged bus on the road
from Tel Aviv to Haifa.
Three years ago Shula's
husband read in the news-
papers that the Labor
Ministry was looking for

women drivers, as prepara-
tion for times of war when
men have to serve in the
army. Mrs. Elsam regis-
tered for a course in which
200 women took part. Only
32 finished the course.
Shula Elsam was the only
one to volunteer to drive an
Egged bus.
She started driving
Egged buses in the nar-
row and steep streets of
Mt. Cannel in Haifa. The
managers of Egged felt
that she could safely
drive passenger buses all
over the country. She

bureaucratic procedures in-
volved, he said.
Solarz said his amend-
ment will cut paper work
and make available to Is-
rael immediately the money
which the U.S. is furnishing
that country in economic
assistance.
"We have to cut down the
amount of money going into
the Commodities Import
Program and increase the
amount going into cash," he
said. "This makes more
available to Israel im-
mediately and also cuts
down Israel's shipping
costs. Instead of being re-
quired to ship half on U.S.
vessels, they could buy
goods here and shipping
costs would go down," Sol-
arz said.

passed several courses in
giving first aid, extin-
guishing fires, dealing
with luggage, alertness
against actions of ter-
rorists and driving in
heat and at night.
Shula passed all the
courses in spite of difficul-
ties. Now she is driving a
50-passenger bus on the Tel
Aviv-Haifa road. In the be-
ginning, some passengers
asked her, "Where is the
driver? Why do we have to
wait for the driver?" Some
passengers even got off.
Some drivers mocked her
and said they keep a safe
distance from her bus.
But in the course of time
all got accustomed to her
role and people are treating
her with respect. Shula has
proved to be a first-class and
cautious driver.

Israel, U.S. Reject Roles
in UN 'Racism' Conference

UNITED NATIONS
(JTA) — Israel and the
United States reiterated
that they cannot participate
in the United Nations-
sponsored Decade to Com-
bat Racism and Racial Dis-
crimination and the World
Conference on Racism to be
held in Geneva next year
because both events still in-
clude the General Asseni
bly's 1975 resolution equat-
ing Zionism with racism.
The two countries an-
nounced their positions as
the UN Economic and So-
cial Council (ECOSOC) ple-
nary reaffirmed its support

Kosher Violations
Double in NY

ALBANY, N.Y. (JTA)
— The issuance of notices of
violations of New York's
kosher law was increased by
nearly 100 percent in the 12
months ending last March
31.
During that period, the
kosher law enforcement di-
vision of the department of
agriculture and markets is-
sued notices of 143 viola-
tions, compared to 69 for the
same period of 1967-77.
Increased efficiency of the
enforcement division was
the result of improvements
and changes, including the
rotation of inspectors from
within New York City to all
parts of the state.

sing Israel's abhorrence of
racism, said it could not par-
ticipate in the two events
because they were "con-
taminated by extraneous is-
sues."
