Scientist Defends French
Reactor Sale to the Iraqis

PARIS (JTA) — Prof.
Alfred Kastler, a Nobel
Prize winner and one of Is-
rael's best friends in France,
denied last week that the
nuclear reactor and
enriched uranium France
had sold Iraq could be used
for military purposes.
Kastler, in a letter to the
newspaper Le Monde, said
he had studied the question
of French nuclear deliveries
to Iraq at the request of
Jewish Renewal, a militant
group, and had also dis-
cussed the issue with other
international scientists.
His conclusion is that "it
seems out of the question
that France's deliveries (of a
nuclear reactor and 12 kgs
of uranium) could be used
for military purposes."

Every boy and girl under Barmitzva
or Basmitzva can buy a letter in this
Torah by joining in with not less and
not more than one dollar. The dollar
must be the child's own money.

Every boy and girl buying a letter will
receive a certificate from Israel in-
forming them in which Sidra (weekly
Torah-chapter) their letter is found.
The letter will be chosen by lottery.

TORONTO (JTA) — A
one-week teachers' strike in
two Jewish day schools, the
first in the history of the To-
ronto day schools, was
ended by an agreement
under which 800 students
and 38 general studies
teachers at Beth Tzedec and
Beth
Tikva
United
Synagogue schools returned
to class.
The teachers agreed to
accept a 12.8 percent in-
crease for teaching 30 hours
weekly in the second year of
a new contract.
In the first year; the
teachers will keep a wage
pattern similar to that of
public school teachers.
Jewish studies were not af-
fected by the walkout.

Torahs Missing

FAR ROCKAWAY, N.Y.
(JTA) — All nine Torahs of
Cong. Young Israel of Far
Rockaway, estimated to be
worth $90,000, were stolen
last week.

The Nobel Prize winners
warned, however, that the
delivery of a nuclear pile
enables the recipient state
to develop its technology
and scientific personnel and
eventually, should it want
to do so, could obtain the
know-how to develop nu-
clear weapons on its own.
Kastler added, 'Some
30 research reactors have
been sold by various
other states and espe-
cially by the United
States to countries which
did not have previous
nuclear experience but
have accepted interna-
tional control."
Kastler's declaration
created a small sensation in
French political and Zionist
circles as the Nobel Prize
winning nuclear scientist is
active on behalf of Israeli
projects and Franco-Israeli
scientific cooperation.

on Israel will be not pre-
sented this year.
