FORESTS

that bear your name

Long after you have gone, forests in Israel
renewing themselves in the cycle of sea-
sons, will keep your memory ever green.
When making your Will, provide that a
forest in Israel be planted in your name or
in that of someone dear to you, handing
down your last wish from generation to
generation.

A bequest to the J.N.F. is a bequest to the
entire Jewish people, linking the name
of the Testator with Israel in perpetuity.

GENEVA (JTA) — The

annual conference of the In-
ternational Labor Organ-
ization (ILO) ended in late
June with the adoption of a
resolution condemning Is-
rael for its settlements in
the occupied territories, in-
cluding Jerusalem.
The vote, 249-15 with 165
abstentions, cultninated
weeks of debate during
which the 2,000 delegates
representing governments,
workers and employers de-
voted 90 percent of their
time to the Arab-Israeli dis-
pute, neglecting the legiti-
mate concerns of the United
Nations affiliated labor
body.
The politicization of the
conference became clear
from the moment the
Secretariat permitted the
Arab-sponsored anti-Israel
draft to be placed on the
agenda without any effec-
tive opposition by the
United States. The Ameri-
cans failed to raise their
voices in protest despite
U.S. Secretary of Labor F.
Ray Marshall's promise to
Israeli Labor F. Ray Mar-
shall's proMise to Israeli
Labor Minister Israel Katz
that the Americans would

put up a fight.
Ironically, the U.S.
walked out of the ILO two
yeais ago in protest
against such politiciza-
tion. It returned this year,
with much fanfare, after
ostensibly having been
convinced that the ILO
would mend its ways and
no loinger engage in
purely political debates.
When the session opened,
the big question was
would the Americans
walk out again if the con-
ference turned into a
forum for anti-Israel
polemics.
"The American eagle
turned into a chicken," one
Western correspondent ob-
served when, during the de-
bate over the agenda, the
U.S. remained silent. Some
of the American delegates
explained that they had
wanted to speak but were
told that the speakers' list
was closed for lack of time.
Others said they did a lot
of lobbying. But the fact re-
mained that the Americans
did not fight to keep the
resolution off the agenda
and that attitude worried
the Israeli as well as the
Western delegations. Fran-
cis Blanchard, director gen-

eral of the ILO, acknowl-
edged in a television inter-
view that he was worried
about the organization's fu-
ture.
"The politicization of the
conference made it impossi-
ble to tackle many of the
ILO's real problems and
there is a danger that the
ILO will cease to be what it
is meant to be and will deal
only in political matters,"
he said. Yet many observers
claimed that Blanchard did
not do as much as he might
have to stop the Arab reso-
lution from being pre-
sented.
According to the voting
procedures, negative votes
do not count and if the 15
had abstained, the neces-
sary quorum would not
have been attained.
Israel was supported
by Latin American coun-
tries and the Western
Europeans. Thanks to
Histadrut and the Inter-
national Confederation
of Free Trade • Unions
(ICFTU), many worker
delegate's sided with Is-
rael while their govern-
ments supported the
anti-Israel move. This

Israeli Orthodox, Secularists
Battling Over Lifestyles

NETIV9T (JTA) -- A
simmering "kulturkampf'
between secular Jews and
the Orthodox majority in
this normally quiet Negev
township erupted into
angry .demonstrations and
street brawls last weekend
requiring intervention by
police.

The basic issue is the in-
sistence by the Orthodox
that the growing secular •
community conform to their
way of life. The non-
observant charge religious
coercion by the municipal
leaders who are Orthodox.
The immediate cause of
the disturbances was the
municipal swimming pool
which is open six days a .
week — three days for men
and three days for women.
The secular community has
not demanded that the pool
be kept open off the Sab-
bath, but they insist that it
be open to men and women
on the same days so that
families can enjoy the
facility together. - ,
The Orthodox will not
tolerate mixed swim-
ming. The Orthodox also
force all children in the
town to attend a religious
school — the only one in
Netivot. The non-
religoius population has
demanded its right to a
secular, co-educational
school.
Otherwise, they are
forced to send their
youngsters to schools in
other communities which
poses problems and ex-
penses in addition to the
taxes they pay in Netivot.

LONDON (ZINS) — The
Herut party and the gerieral
Zionist Organization of
Britain are claiming that
they now control the Zionist
Federation. Results of elec-

in June, show that of the 51
elected positions, Herut
captured 22 and their coali-
tion partners, the general
Zionists and Federation of
Synagogues, another eight.'
