Labor Party Approach to Autonomy Is Discussed by Bar-Lev

By SOLLY PRESS
JOHANNESBURG
(JTA) — The big question
for Israel is not what type of
autonomy the Palestinians
require, but what the final
status of the administered
territories will , be in a few
years' time.
This approach was put
forward by Gen. Haim
Bar-Lev, visiting South Af-
rica as the guest of Habonim
on the occasion of its 50th
jubilee. Israel's former chief

getting Israel's side of the
story across in Europe and
elsewhere.
While in opposition, the
Labor Party has had more
time to reappraise its
policies and the problems
facing Israel, said Bar-Lev.
He noted that Israel was by
no means unique in the
world of developing states
in the matter of bureauc-
racy.
Israel has only recently
started university-level
business adminstration and
public administration
courses, something he wel-
comes.
A developing country
does not usually have .a
surfeit of trained civil
servants. Indeed, said
Bar-Lev, some of the best
public servants he had
come across in Israel

hailed from the era of the
British Mandate and
even from the Ottoman
period.
- He had been asked about
cases in Israel where, in
order to avoid communal

friction, situations had
evolved in certain areas
where Arabs preferred to
live in their own villages
and Jews in theirs. Bar-Lev
observed that while he was
not familiar with the South

African situation, he felt
that there was no compari-
son. In Israel, where there
was equality before the law;
both Arabs and Jews had
the vote and sat in the same
Knesset, he said.

Boycott Film
by Redgrave

NEW YORK — Nine
more companies have indi-
cated that they will not
sponsor the controversial
CBS-TV docudrama, "Play-
ing for Time," starring
Vanessa Redgrave as Fania
Fenelon, a Jewish survivor
of Auschwitz. The actress
has been sympathetic to the
PLO in the past.
The nine advertisers are:
Kraft, Pillsbury, Carnation,
Coca-Cola, Sears Roebuck,
Johnson and Johnson, Bor-
den, Gillette and Chrysler.
The firms join four others
who previously stated that
they would not buy adver-
tising time for the film,
which is to be aired later
this year. The four are:
Campbell Soup, Ralston
Purina, Toyota and
W6-ner-Lambert.
