A spokesman for the_
teachers said that the board
increased its offer of a raise
from 21/2 to three percent,
but is continuing to insist
that the teachers pick up
the cost of 30 percent of
their medical insurance.
UHS has paid the full cost of
the insurance in the past.

The net effect would
still be a pay cut," the
teachers' spokesman
said.

The teachers offered to re-
turn to work immediately if
the board would agree to
binding arbitration but the
board refused, the teachers
said.
The UHS teachers called
a public meeting last night
- at Cong. Beth Achim to give
their reasons for the strike
and seek public support.
The strike forced the can-
cellation of last Sunday's
scheduled teachers' insti-
tute sponsored annually by
the Jewish Educators'
Council of Metropolitan De-
troit.
It was reported that Tom
Turner, president of the
Michigan AFL-CIO, is get-
ting involved in the UHS
situation, as he did during a
similar strike in 1972.

60,000 Teachers
Close All Israeli
Public Schools

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Some 60,000 teachers went
on strike Monday morning
shutting down classes for
more than one million
pupils all over Israel who
had begun their new school
year only the week before.
The strike followed the
breakdown of last ditch
negotiations between the
teachers union and gov-
ernment representatives
t' began at midnight and
:d until 4 a.m.
'rhe issue is wages. The
government is standing fast
on its policy of granting no
• pay raises to public em-
ployes in excess of 15 per-
cent. That policy was re-
affirmed by the Cabinet at a
special session.

Dulzin Critical
of Israel on Aliya

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Leon . Dulzin, chairman of
the World Zionist Organiza-
tion and Jewish Agency
Executives, said in a radio
interview that the present
government is as bad as the
previous one with respect to
aliya and absorption.

FOR THAT
"TRADITIONAL
LOOK. • •"

If you're going to get a new suit or sport coat for the
holidays, better come in now while there's still time
for alterations. Shifman's is full to bursting with
latest fall and winter styles by the world's leading
designers. W'd like to suggest this beautiful pin
stripped vested suit by Phoenix. It's beautifully
tailored, elegant and priced right. In shades of brown
and gray, $225.
