JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Israelis celebrated the 31st
anniversary of indepen-
dence in a relaxed mood on
Wednesday. Possibly re-
flecting the fact that their
nation was finally at peace
with at least one of its
neighbors, the emphasis
was on family and social

YES—to the Jewish National Fund

JNF land supports the whole Israel
economy — It grows its food — On it
stands Israel's religious, educational
and welfare institutions. A bequest to
Jewish National Fund is a bequest to
the entire Jewish people, linking the
name of the Testator with Israel in per-
petuity.

gatherings rather than
mass rallies and parades.
Youngsters took to the
seashore Tuesday night to
sing and dance around bon-
fires. Their elders attended
parties, mostly at the homes
of family or friends. Some
hotels offered Independence
Day dinners with
entertainment. Wednesday
saw a mass exodus of
families from the cities with
picnic baskets. By 10 a.m.,
police announced that all
parking spaces at recrea-
tion areas were filled.
Security measures were
tightened. Only one
security-related incident
was reported. In Dimona, an
explosive device was found
under the platform in the
main square where the
mayor and town councilmen
were scheduled to speak. It
was safely dismantled.
Premier Menahem Begin
delivered his Independence
Day address on radio and
television Tuesday night. It
was less a political speech
than an exhortation to Is-
raelis to improve the qual-
ity of life in the country in
order to attract more im-
migrants, especially from
the West. "Why cannot we
be as clean as the Swiss?"
Begin asked. "In Switzer-
land, no one drops even a
cigarette butt on the street
and if someone finds a butt
he stoops to pick it up and
put it in the bin." He also
called on Israelis to improve
their manners and mode of
conduct toward one an-
other.

The Premier announced a
Cabinet decision to freeze
all public construction —
except in Jerusalem, for
hospitals, or "Project Re-
newal" — in order to chan-
nel manpower and re-
sources towards homes for
young couples and for
poorly-housed families, as
well as for immigrants.
Independence Day was
ushered in with Tuesday's
Memorial Day, in which
thousands of Israelis paid
their respects to nearly.
14,000 soldiers who fell dur-
ing the nation's wars.
Following a two minute
siren at 11 a.m., hundreds of
memorial services started
simultaneously in military
cemeteries and army camps
throughout the country.
The end of Memorial Day
was marked with the kindl-
ing of 13 beacons at Mt.
Herzl. In accordance with a
special request of Premier
Begin, an honor guard was
stationed at the Herzl's
tomb on Mt. Herzl. The
guard will be comprised of
sons and grandsons of pre-
state underground fighters.

Israel Counts
Its War Dead

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Is-
rael counted its war dead
Monday night as sirens
wailed to usher in Memorial
Day which traditionally
precedes Independence
Day. The total was appal-
ling for a nation of little
more than three million
souls — 13,968 men, women
and soldiers lost in four
wars and the War of Attri-
tion since the Jewish state
was founded 31 years ago.
Israel's War of Indepen-
dence in 1948 claimed 5,810
soldiers. The brief Sinai
campaign of 1956 added an-
other 421 dead. In the 10
years from 1957-1967, 930
more Israeli soldiers were
killed. The death toll in the
Six-Day War was 877
soldiers but another 1,010
lost their lives in the War of
Attrition with Egypt from
June 15, 1967 to Dec. 31,
1969; 412 were killed in
1970, 200 in 1971 and 189 in
1972. In 1973, before the
outbreak of the Yom Kippur
War, an additional 101
soldiers died. In the war is-
telf, 4,018 Israeli soldiers
were killed in action.

Dulzin Assures
Galilee Settlers

SAFED (JTA) — Uneasy
settlers in Galilee received
assurances from Jewish.
Agency chairman Leon
Dulzin last week, that Is-
rael would never endanger
them by returning the
Golan Heights to Syria and
that the problems plaguing
the region would be dealt
with expeditiously.
Dulzin, chairman of the
World Zionist Organiza-
tion, toured Galilee with his
chief aides and spoke to
representatives of settle-
ments and towns here and
in Tiberias, Rosh Pina,
Carmiel and other places.

Price on Mengele

HAIFA (JTA) — Tuvia
Friedman, head of the Is-
raeli Documentation Cen-
ter, has proposed a $100,000
award to any person or
group that will find Dr.
Joseph Mengele, the man
who sent two million Jews
to the gas chambers in Au-
schwitz and Birkenau. Ac-
cording to Friedman, the
award would be paid half by
the Israeli government and
half by the Jewish Agency
on behalf of world Jewry.
