NEW YORK — An inten •
sified summer-long prog-
ram of missions to Israel,
along with record results in
all major events in August
and September, has given
the 1982 United Jewish Ap-
peal fund-raising campaign
the greatest start of any
peacetime drive in UJA his-
tory.
UJA National Chairman
Herschel W. Blumberg re-
ported high watermarks in
regular campaign pledge to-
tals for the 1982 Prime
Minister's Mission ($15.8
million) and President's
Mission ($9.6 million).
These missions were
supplemented by a private
meeting with Israel Prime
Minister Menahem Begin
in New York, which added
another $4.5 million in pre-
viously unannounced regu-
lar campaign •pledges.
The combined $29.9 mill-
ion realized from the three
events represents an in-
crease of 26.4 percent over
regular campaign pledges
by the same donors in the
1981 campaign.
Blumberg reported that
an unprecedented number
of nearly 1,500 people came
to Israel. The regular Cam-
paign total of more than
$8,000 realized by the fam-
ily missions far surpassed
prior summer achievements
by similar groups, register-
ing a 36.6 percent increase.
The highest gain detailed
in the UJA report was the
198 percent increase in reg-
ular campaign pledges by
national singles mission
participants. The total re-

Holiday Message

SANTIAGO (JTA) —
President Augusto Pinochet
Ugarte sent a Yom Kippur
message to the Jewish
community of Chile earlier
this month on behalf of his
government and himself to
express "the feelings of my
highest consideration" to
the Jews of Chile for "con-
tributing with energy and
devotion to the development
of this nation."

Libya and Saudi Arabia,
that Iraq should have
atomic capability within
five to 10 years and that
Libya also should have a
weapon shortly.
Goodman made these
predictions in one of the 13
programs in the current
"Dateline Israel" series
prdduced by the Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai
Brith.
In discussing the cur-
rent military situation in
the Middle East, Good-
man said that because
the Arab world is frag-
mented he does not ex-
pect a concerted attack
upon Israel by "the con-
frontation states."
However, he stressed that
Israel must prepare for this
"worst case" possibility
since the situation can
change at any moment.
Goodman also pointed out
that even a limited war
would be "devastating" be-
cause of its economic as well
as destructive impact upon
a small nation whose
military forces are 80 per-
cent civilian and which is
enduring high inflation. He
went on to say that the
major cause of the inflation
is the rition's need to spend
40 percent of its budget on
defense -

Town's Newest Emigres
Boast 4 Legs, Green Skin

HAMAT GADER — This
town, which until the Sy-
rians were ousted from the
Golan Heights in 1967, had
been thought of as indefen-
sible, is now perhaps Is-
rael's most unique resort.
Hamat Gader boasts hot
springs, newly excavated
Roman Ruins and Florida
alligators.

Last month, crates con-
taining 120 alligators were
shipped from New York to
Tel Aviv via El Al Airlines.
The reptiles were then
trucked to Hamat Gader.
Only one got away
along the road and it was
later recovered. None of
the alligators died, a re-
markable achievement
according to Guy Ben-
Moshe, who, along with

helpers from various
kibutzim in the area, built
the shallow ponds which
will serve as new homes
for the reptiles. The
ponds are fed by a spring
that maintains a year-
round water temperature
of 82 degrees.
Ben-Moshe, a native New
Yorker who emigrated to Is-
rael in 1969, recently spent
two months on a Florida al-
ligator farm learninghow to -
take care of the animals. He
believes the alligators,
which cost Israel $50,000
will draw additional
tourists to Hamat Gader.
The plan is to breed them
and let them multiply.
Ben-Moshe promised
American wildlife officials
that none of the animals
would be sold for slaughter.

Israel Expanding 3rd World Trade

JERUSALEM (JNI) —
Israel is continuing to assist
Latin America and, to a les-
ser degree, Africa with ag-
riculture and economic aid
regardless of diplomatic re-
lations.
Most recently, "Tahal,"
Israeli engineering consul-
tants, was licensed to build
bridges and roads worth
"tens of millions of dollars"
in an unnamed African
country, Yediot Aharonot
reported last week.
Another "Tahal" prog-
ram, to train local farming
technicians, in only one
year increased production
in central and northwestern
Costa Rica by 40 percent,
Agriculture Minister Her-
nan Fonseca Zamora said at
the recent Agritech '81 ag-
ricultral implements exhib-
ition in Tel Aviv. Zamora
visited "to find the most
suitable Israeli methods to
establish settlements on
Costa Rica's frontiers."
"Agridev" is assisting the
Venezuelan dairy industry
with a $40 million program.
The Venezuelan delegation
to Agritech brought $1 mill-
ion worth of farming
machinery, while negotiat-
ing privately to purchase
1 ;500 Israeli cows.

-

Water-efficient modern
irrigation systems remain
central to bi-lateral cooper-
ation. "Agridev" is also de-
signing a factory for the
manufacture of aluminum
irrigation pipes in Ecuador.
But Israeli irrigation sys-
tems are laid together with
farming facilities — for cot-
ton In Argentina and Mexi-
can vegetables — which
provide food for local con-
sumption as well as on-the-
spot processing for export.
Commercial and gov-
ernment exchange bet-
ween Israel and Latin
America now totals $300
million, or 2.6 percent of
Israel's yearly export.
Asia accounts for 10 per-
cent and the U.S. for 17

percent.

The European commun-
ity absorbs 65 percent, but
competition and trade obs-
tacles within the European
market swell annually —
risking Israeli export de-
pendence.
Meanwhile, the potential
for expansion of Israeli
trade with Third World na-
tions as a result of Israel-
encouraged rural develop-
ment continues to grow.

Joy and grief are never
'
far apart.
