Spektor, Zionist Pioneer,
an Histadrut Founder 71


Naim Spektor, who was
one of the founders of the
Histadrut Labor Zionist
movement, died in Tel Aviv
Wednesday. Funeral serv-
ices were held there Thurs-
day. He was 71.
Surviving are his wife,

Yona Yagol Dies, Israeli Journalist

Yagol, the well-known
journalist and author, and
an ardent Labor Zionist
spokesman who founded in
Poland the Gordonia
movement named after
A.D. Gordon, has died here
at age 68.

A close associate of the
late Pinhas Lavon, Mr.
Yagol left Mapai when
Lavon left the Labor gov-
ernment in 1955 over
charges that he was in-
volved in an Israeli spy ring
in Egypt. But Mr. Yagol re-

turned to the Labor Party in
which he subsequently held
various key positions. He
was also the representative
of Histadrut in the Euro-
pean Trade Union Council.
After the Likud victory in
1978, Mr. Yagol wrote two
books, both controversial.
One, "The End of the
Hegemony," analyzed the
reason for Labor's defeat,
and the other, a fictional
story, dealt with the possi-
bility of a takeover of the
Temple Mount by Jewish
militants resembling the
Jewish Defense League.
