New Jewelry Developed in Israel

By RICHARD COHEN

(Copyright 1981, JTA, Inc.)

The gold chain you
bought recently might well
have come from Israel,
which is now second only to
Italy in exporting gold
chains to the United States.

Rothschild Prizes
to 2 Companies

JERUSALEM (JNI) —
This year, for the first time,
all 12 winners of the
Rothschild Prizes for Indus-
trial Development were
completely Israel-educated.
The winners, graduates of
.Lie Technion, Hebrew Uni-
versity, Tel Aviv University
and the ORT Vocational
High School, represent the
Elscint and Motorola Israel
companies.
The Israeli branch of
Motorola marketed a com-
puterized irrigation system
that simultaneously waters
and fertilizes fields.
Motorola, which exported
the computer to several
Mediterraneancountries
and the U.S. in 1979, be-
lieves a "new, untapped
market" exists for them at
thousands of U.S. golf
courses.
The Elscint employees
will be cited for the de-
velopment of a "com-
puterized tomograph,"
which produces three-
dimensional scans, more
effective than X-rays in
locating cystic tissues in
the human body.
President Yitzhak Navon
will present the fourth an-
nual $5,000 prizes to Elscint
and Motorola.

Praise for Begin

LONDON — During a
private visit to Egypt,
fornier Israeli ambassador
to the United Nations
Chaim Herzog and his wife
had a private, one-hour
audience with President
Anwar Sadat.
Sadat is following the up-
coming Israeli election with
interest, Herzog reported,
and had only praise. for Is-
raeli Prime Minister
Menahem Begin. Sadat is
reported to have said that
despite their differences
Begin always kept his word.
Herzog and his
Egyptian-born wife spent
seven days in Egypt. They
were unable to visit the
house where they cele-
brated their engagement,
however. It is now the Saudi
Arabian embassy.

PLO, Leftists
in El Salvador
Share Goals

BEIRUT — Palestinian
rorists and leftist gueril-
in El Salvador share the
same goals, according to an
,interview with an uniden-
tified Salvadoran guerilla
in Al Liwa, a newspaper
which has close ties to the
Palestine Liberation
Organization.
The interview quoted the
Central American as saying
"We and the Palestinian
revolution are in the same
trench fighting the same
enemy."

Not long ago the Yosi
brothers of Tel Aviv, two
Soviet Jews who had emi-
grated to Israel, decided to
apply their mechanical
engineering training to the
jewelry business. In seeking
to maximize their limited
supply of gold and find new
ways of making chains, they
came up with a new process
for making lighter-weight
rope chains of the 14-karat
gold.
The new chain is both at-
tractive and durable; it also
has the advantage of look-
ing like a far more expen-
sive item than it is. And it
is selling very well in

Israelis Treated
for Hypertension

Bloomingdale's in New
York and J.C. Penney in Los
Angeles.
The same Yosi brothers
also offer rope chains in
something brand new —
nine-karat gold. This
discovery comes from the
Nobel Metals Research
Center in Haifa, which
has developed a secret
alloy which enables Is-
raeli jewelers to produce
nine-karat gold jewelry
— and make it look and
feel (almost) like 18.
You can't buy it in the
U.S.; American law forbids
the sale of nine-karat gold
items. But soon you can buy
it in Israel — and there's no
law against wearing it in
the U.S.

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Some
300,000 Israelis over the
age of 18, about 15percent
of the total in- that age
group, suffer from high
blood pressure, and 50,000
are now enrolled in 200
clinics, taking part in what
is described as one of the
foremost programs for the
systematic detection and
treatment of high blood
pressure in the Western
world.
Dr. Donald Silverberg,
head of the Kupat Holim
hypertension department
which is operating the pro-
grain, said he knew of no
other Western country, in-
cluding Britain with its na-
tional health service, which
had -embarked on such a-
plan. He said 'only the
Soviet Union had one
somewhat similar.

Israeli Tank
a Product of
Arab Threats

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Is-
rael's decision to design and
produce its Merkava battle
tank was the result of Brit-
ain's withdrawal of an
agreement to supply Israel
with modern° Chieftain
tanks, according to Maj.
Gen. (Res.) Israel Tal, in-
itiator of the Israeli tank.
Tal told a Tel Aviv Uni-
versity forum that the
British had agreed in 1966
to supply Israel with a
number of Chieftain. tanks,
but under Arab pressure
and terrorist threats to at-
tack British embassies
abroad, the British in De-
cember 1969 suddenly
withdrew their agreement.
