one of Jerusalem's busy in-

million citizens.
Marking the 20th an-
niversary of the establish-
ment of the first women's
police unit, Mrs. Ofira
Navon recently held a re-
ception at the Preisdent's
House where Nitzav Mis-
hne Naomi Shadmi, ex-
head of the women's police
unit recalled the initial
doubts.
These were not only
among the public, but also
in the police command, as to
whether or not women were
capable of carrying out all
the difficult and dangerous
jobs that are expected of
policemen.
No such doubts, how-
ever, are evident today,
she stated, with women in
the Israel Police better
utilized than in any force
in the world. "Manpower
(or womanpower) should
never be wasted," she
said, "especially in a
country like Israel."

ral Headquarters, Rivka

here on Ammunition Hill
twelve years after you
I walk through the ,war
on an easy Saturday
and I hear your cries
as the bullets pierce your hearts
and I feel the pain
as you watch your best friends fall
and I taste the blood
seeping from your limbs . .
I'm here with you now
on Ammunition Hill
I count you listed
on a plaque above
I whisper your names
and plant them
in the garden of my eye
to touch

remember I'm standing here
on an easy Saturday
because of the names
you've left

Seminary Drive Chairman Named

NEW YORK — Rabbi

spiritual leader of Temple
Beth El in Cedarhurst,
N.Y., has been named 1982
chairman of the Rabbinical
Assembly's annual semi-
nary maintenance cam-

paign.
Most of the 1,200 mem-
bers of the Rabbinical As-
sembly, international asso-

Israel Economy
Improved in '81

- NEW YORK — Israel
succeeded in reducing infla-
tion by 31 percentage points
last year while increasing
its gross national product,
boosting exports and rais-
ing productivity.
At the same time, unem-
ployment was kept down to
the 1980 level of 5 percent
and the civilian balance-
of-payMents deficit declined
by five percent, according to
a report by the Israel Eco-
nomic Mission in New York.
The December inflation
rate was 5.2 percent, bring-
ing the total for the year to
101.5 percent. the 1980 fig-
ure was 133 percent and the
inflation rate in 1979 was
111 percent.
The report also revealed
that the "consumption
basket" of goods and serv-
ices used by the poorest
tenth of the population r
by 90.7 percent — less th,_ /
the rate of inflation. In com-
parison, the goods and serv-
ices used by the wealthiest
10 percent of the population
went up by 106 percent.
This development reversed
the trend of recent years, in
which the impact of infla-
tion was felt more acutely
by the poor, the report said.
