Malawi last week to ascer-
tain the circumstances that
led to the crash of an
Israel-made civilian jet air-
craft. The two Israeli test
pilots who were demon-
strating it to potential
buyers in that southeast Af-
rican country were killed.
The victims were David
Levine, 41, a former U.S.
Marine pilot who saw action
in Vietnam, and Eli Mor,
44, a lt. col. (res.) who for-
merly commanded a
skyhawk jet squadron in the
Israel Air Force. Both were
employed by Israel Aircraft
Industries, manufacturer of
the Arava short-take-off-
and-landing (STOL) air-
craft involved in the crash.

IAI was negotiating with
the Malawi authorities for
the sale of four of the planes
and a large crowd of local
officials was watching the
demonstration.
Levine and Mor, who
had flown the Arava to
Malawi from Israel,
crashed shortly after tak-
ing off.
The remains of the two
flyers were flown to Israel
for burial. Levine is sur-
vived by his wife and two
children, and Mor by his
wife and four children.

ORT Approves Record $80 Million Budget

NEW YORK (JTA) — A
record budget of
$79,935,600 to provide edu-
cation and vocational train-
ing to 100,000 men, women
and young people in 24
countries was approved by
some 750 delegates attend-
ing the American ORT Fed-
eration's national centen-
nial conference at the Hil-
ton Hotel.
Nearly half of the sum —
more than $39,000,000 — is
to be spent in Israel, with
substantial amounts also
allocated for ORT's efforts
in France and in Latin
America, particularly
Argentina.
The budget was proposed
by Sidney Leiwant, AOF
president, who was re-
elected for a second year by
acclamation.
Leiwant said "that in
1980 ORT education and
vocational training and
courses will be reaching
100,000 men, women and
young people, the largest
in its existence."
Earlier in the day the
AOF delegates had heard a
plea from Michael Avitzour,
director general of ORT Is-
rael, "to regard Israel as
your top priority." He
warned that "there are
many thousands of Israeli
youngsters of high school
age — more than 25,000 —
who are not within any edu-
cational system in the coun-
try. So far we have not been
able to reach them; but we
can and we want to."
Speaking at the ORT
Centennial Dinner, Sen.
Jacob Javits (R-N.Y.) de-
clared that, since Israel and
Egypt are now the linchpins
of United States and free
world security in the Middle

East, increased United
States financial support to
both countries is required to
protect vital American
interests in the area.
"Security is the predo-
minant consideration in the
area now," Javits declared.
"It is essential that we have
security enclaves in this
area," citing Israel and
Egypt as current examples.

Javits, the ranking Re-
publican on the Senate
Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, declared that, in
view of the fact that "both
Israel and Egypt have
demonstrated their
commitment to the
negotiating process, the
United States must be
prepared to be patient
"about the progress of
autonomy negotiations
between Israel and Egypt
and must continue to in-
sist on the peace process
as outlined in the Camp
David accords.
ORT education and voca-
tional training programs
last year served 98,000
people in 24 countries, ac-
cording to Leiwant.
Two out of three of the
total ORT enrollment,
Leiwant indicated, were in
the 95 ORT vocational and
technical training institu-
tions in Israel in 1979.
New ORT schools have
been opened in recent
months in Kibutz Efron,
Kibutz Beit-Alfa, at the
potash chemical plant on
the shores of the Dead Sea
and in Bnei Brak.
In France, the site of
ORT's second largest

Dulzin Expects 300,000 Emigres

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Leon
Dulzin, chairman of the
World Zionist Organization
and Jewish Agency Execu-
tives, predicted that
200,000-300,000 immig-
rants will arrive in Israel
during the next five years
and called on the WZO to be
prepared to receive them by
establishing 80 new settle-
ments and raising $3 billion
through the various cam-
paigns and appeals over-
seas.
Addressing a closed ses-
sion of the WZO Executive
plenary that met in Tel
Aviv earlier this month,
Dulzin summed up the most
important tasks of the WZO
as aliya, education, settle-
ment and the rehabilitation
of the underprivileged in Is-
raeli society through Proj-
ect Renewal.
Dulzin warned that the
Zionist movement must
prepare itself for a new
wavb of attack because
there are now more factors,
apart from the declared
enemies of Zionism in the
Arab and Communist coun-
tries, that seek to under-
mine Zionism.
Raanan Weitz, co-
chairman of the WZO's
settlement department,
said some settlements
were threatened with ex-
tinction because of lack
of proper housing. He

suggested the construc-
tion of new immigrant
moshavim at the rate of
three per year.
The other settlement de-
partment co-chairman,
Matatyahu Drobless,
warned that if settlements
are not established now it
might not be possible to es-
tablish them at a later
stage.

Blacks Contest
Allowance Cuts
for Israel Kids

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Black Panther move-
ment, a group representing .
poverty neighborhoods, said
it will fight the treasury's
intentions to cut children's
allowances for a family's
first three children.
Both factions of the
movement — the one linked
with the Communist Party
and the one which is part of
Shelf — held a joint press
conference promising "not
to keep quiet."
Spokesman
Manny
Cohen said the movement
would take some "radical
action" because of any cuts
in children's allowances
would particularly hurt the
poor people. Communist
Party MK Charlie Biton es-
timated that some 40,000
families would be hurt by
the cuts.

been opened in recent
months in Toulouse.
More than 8,000 students,
the majority of them
Jewish newcomers from
North Africa, attended
ORT courses in France
last year.
Other major ORT pro-
grams overseas included aid
to Jews in Argentina and
other Latin American coun-
tries, and to Soviet Jewish
refugees in Rome while they
waited to depart for the
United States and other
Western countries.
President Jimmy Carter
lauded the American ORT

Federation for its "funda-
mental concern for skills,
livelihood and dignity as
basic human rights," and
declaring that "this particu-
lar national conference has
a historic dimension and a
special meaning for all
Americans.
"You may be proud of
what you have done in the
first century of ORT. You
have provided an enormous
service to the more than two
million human beings
whom you have aided. And
you have greatly advanced
the progress and well-being
of society as a whole."
