Palestinians
Join Volleyball
Federation

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Two
Israeli delegates attending
the International Vol-
leyball Federation in Mos-
cow sent a cable to Israel
saying that they were un-
able to prevent the ac-
ceptance of a Palestinian
group, Falastin, into the
federation.
"Our opposition was
irdly heard," the cable
stated. We were happy that
we were not ousted from the
European group. Falastin
was able to muster a strong
majority." Israel, as a
member of the European
group, had already been in-
vited to take part in the
European volleyball cham-
pionship game in Finland
next year.
The two Israelis, Chaim
Karpowski, of the Israel
Sports Federation's vol-
leyball committee, and
Moshe Rash, of the fed-
eration's executive, were
dispatched to Moscow
last week where the 1980
Olympics were being
held after a cable was re-
ceived here warning that
the International Vol-
leyball Federation would
discuss proposals to drop
Israel from membership
and co-opt the Palesti-
nian sports group.
Falastin is now a member
of six international federa-
tions — volleyball, wrestl-
ing, handball, basketball,
table tennis and weight lift-
ing — and therefore qual-
ified to apply for, member-
ship in the International
Olympic Committee. A
senior Palestine Liberation
Organization delegate in
Moscow has already an-
nounced that the PLO will
apply to the committee so
that theFalastin group may
take part in the-next Olym-
pic Games in Los Angeles in
1984.

Tribe of Jews
Is Discovered
in North Yemen

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Ef-
forts are being made to es-
tablish contact with a
hitherto unknown tribe of
Jews living in a remote
region of North Yemen close
to the Saudi Arabian bor-
der.
According to Mordechai
11111111en-Porat, a former MK
who heads the World
rganization of Jews from
AlliFrab Countries, the tribe
was discovered only re-
cently and is believed to
number about 2,000 per-
sons.
Ben-Porat said that until
now, only a few hundred
Jews were believed to dwell
in that isolated part of the
Arabian Peninsula, mainly
gold and silversmiths, arti-
sans and weavers.
He said there are pre-
sently some 35,000 Jews liv-
ing in various Arab coun-
tries.

When one man tells you
you're drunk, hesitate;
when two tell you, think it
over; when three tell you —
lie down.
