HAIFA — A new style typewriter that can be operated in
connection with complicated engineering systems has been de-
veloped at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology.
The new Hebrew-language typewriter helps reduce "one of
the major constraints on the incorporation of computer elements
in a wide-range of engineering systems," according to the scien-
tists who developed it.
The new machine has four keys and is operated by one hand.
Each character is typed by two successive strokes against a corn-
bination of one, two or three keys. The fourth key is for spacing.
Users are taught to visualize each Hebrew character, which
gives them an easy guideline to memorize which keys to press to
form the desired letter. The typewriter can be operated while
flying an airplane and is operated in conjunction with a computer

WEST POINT, N.Y. — Thirteen Jewish cadets were
commissioned Second Lieutenants in the United States
Army at colorful graduation ceremonies held at West Point
May 28. The first Jewish woman cadet, Dana Maller, was a
member of the 1980 graduating class.
All thirteen cadets participated in the Jewish Bacca-
laureate Service conducted the Friday evening before
graduation. Some 250 persons, including staff, members of
the faculty and their families and guests from surrounding
communities attended the service, which like all weekly
Jewish services was held in a chemistry lecture hall.

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Premier Menahem Begin complained bitterly against the U.S. Sunday for its
failure to veto an anti-Israel resolution adopted by the UN Security Council last Thursday, and against
Egypt for allegedly briefing the Palestine Liberation Organization on the progress of the autonomy talks
over the past year.
Addressing a press conference after the weekly. Cabinet session, Begin denounced the resolution which
condemned the June 2 bomb attacks on West Bank mayors and accused Israel of not providing adequate
protection to the civilian population in the occupied territories. The U.S. abstained in the vote after Israel
requested a veto. •
A Cabinet communique charged earlier that the resolution was a pretext to demand Israel's total
withdrawal from the territories, including East Jerusalem, and therefore was in contravention of Resolu-
tion 242, the basis for the Camp David accords. U.S. Ambassador Samuel Lewis told reporters that the U.S.
would have vetoed the resolution had it contained any clause contradictory to Resolution 242.
Begin detailed a long list of Palestinian terrorist attacks against Israelis and others, from the
1972 Munich Olympics massacre to assaults in Athens, Brussels and various parts of Israel, up to
the May 2 ambush killing- of six yeshiva students in Hebron. On none of those occasions was the
Security Council called into session nor was any condemnation forthcoming from the council
against the perpetrators of those attacks, he said.
Begin said that former Egyptian Prime Minister Mustapha Khalil, the chief Egyptian negotiator in
the autonomy talks with Israel and the U.S., had revealed at a London press conference Saturday that
Egypt kept the PLO informed on the talks. Begin charged that it was "bad faith" on Egypt's part to have
conferred with the PLO behind Israel's back. He recalled that at Camp David the two countries had
undertaken to negotiate "in good faith."
Begin said that when the talks are resumed he will demand that such consultations with the PLO cease.
The White House on Wednesday announced that the negotiators of Egypt, Israel and the U.S. will meet
in Washington "to prepare for the resumption of
formal negotiations" on autonomy for the West
Bank and Gaza. Presidential News Secretary
Jody Powell said no date has been set for the

The Norman and Esther Allan College/Touro College will open in the fall of 1980 in
the Detroit area with special academic programs, according to Max Karl, chairman of the
Touro board of trustees.
This college is the first expansion of Touro College outside the New York metropoli-
tan area and is expected to be a major milestone toward the establishment of Touro as a
national Jewish university, with campuses in major cities throughout the country,
according to Dr. Bernard Lander, president of Touro.
In New York City, Touro enrolls more than 2,200 students in its College of

programs will be conducted. In the 1980-1981 academic year the curriculum will offer
courses in Judaic studies for the adult population and develop programs for Russian
immigrant students. In 1981-1982, the college plans to offer college degree programs for
traditional age and adult students.
Touro has been offering programs for Russians, Iranians and other immigrant
