IMF. Denies PLO Observers
While UN Speakers Hit Israel
WSU's Norma Goldman
Has Role in Caesarea Dig
A prominent Michigan academician had an important role in the
current archeological activities in Caesarea, Israel.
Prof. Norma Goldman of the Wayne State University Latin De-
partment was one of five Jews among 80 Americans and Canadians
who participated in the 1980 Caesarea dig.
Prof. Goldman's experiences as one of the Caesarea "dig-
gers" will be described by her in two articles to appear in the
next two issues of The Jewish News. She will describe the ar-
cheological tasks of digging up Herod's ancient city, and out-
line the successful efforts of the expedition's leader, Robert J.
Prof. Goldman, herself a WSU graduate, taught Latin and Roman
life courses at the university for 31 years. Her husband, Dr. Bernard
Goldman, is the executive director of Wayne State University Press
and continues as a member of the WSU faculty as a professor of art.
Robert J. Bull of Drew University is the director of the annual digs,
which have involved 1,700 people over the last nine years. According to

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The two chief branches of the World Bank, the International
Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Reconstruction and Finance Corporation (RFC) have denied the -
Palestine Liberation Organization observer status at their annual meeting here and in the
process upset a decision by the chairman of the sessions, which begin next Tuesday, to exclude
all other observers.
The IMF and the RFC said that the resolution offered by the United States against changing
the rules that prevailed at the 1979 meeting has been adopted by their boards of governors. In
accordance with the usual practices, the IMF and the RFC refused to give details of the balloting
by the IMF's 140 members or the RFC's 135.
The U.S. House of Representatives voted 386-2 last week to "seriously reduce" U.S.
financial support to the World Bank if the PLO were admitted to observer status.
The two World Bank resolutions effectively bar observer status to the PLO since it did not
have this status at the 1979 meetings. However, Tanzania which has the chairmanship at this
year's annual meetings decided to deny observer status to all other organizations.
But the RFC ruling apparently has effectively overruled the chair's decision. The Tanza-
nian move reportedly was a sop to the Arab countries for being defeated on their PLO maneuver.
Although the results of the balloting have been unofficially known since Friday, the IMF
and the RFC reportedly have delayed announcing the results because Arab countries had
challenged the results and Saudi Arabia and Kuwait suspended financing some projects in
demanding status for the PLO.
Meanwhile, at the United Nations General Assembly sessions in New York, France
charged "the unilateral and illegal decisions of the state of Israel, whether in regard to
the West Bank or more recently, Jerusalem, are new impediments to the search for a
peaceful settlement" in the Middle East.

Local Red Cross Accepts MDA Flag

An important step encouraging recognition by the International Red Cross, and its inclusion as a
cooperating ally of the Israel Magen David Adom, was taken by the Southeastern Michigan Chapter of the
Red Cross at the meeting of its governing board, Sept. 17, at the Red Cross Building.
The event marked the presentation of the Magen David Adorn emblem and its acceptance for addition
to the Red Cross, Red Lion and Sun, and Red Crescent emblems on the wall of the Red Cross Building.
Mrs. Gerald E. Warren, president of the Southeastern Michigan Red Cross Chapter, presided at the
meeting and the MDA flag was presented by Dr. John Mames, president of the Michigan Chapter of
American Red Magen David for Israel.
N. Brewster Broder, Southeastern Michigan Red Cross board member, defined the Magen
David Adorn role in Israel in introduc- ow ,
tory remarks presenting Dr. Names.
The MDA delegation at the meeting who
were introduced by Dr. Mames included
Myron Steinberg, Dr. Morris Starkman and
Philip Slomovitz, who also spoke briefly.
The MDA spokesmen pointed out that
failure to include the Israel counterpart of
the Red Cross in the international society of
the humanitarian movement was due to
political pressure, the American Red Cross
remaining a leader in efforts to correct the
injustice. Honor was paid to the local branch
for its fairness in responding to the Israel ,
