International Red Cross Expert Says Arab Girls Weren't Poisoned

(Continued from Page 1)
Control in Atlanta ar-
rived in Israel on Monday
to carry out an indepen-
dent investigation at the
request of the Health
Ministry. They are Drs.
Phillip Landigren and
Bess Miller. Israel invited
the independent investi-

charges by some Palesti-

plot.
The ailment, first re-
ported in the Jenin area last
week, resulted in the hos-
pitalization of hundreds of
Arab high school girls who
complained of fainting, diz-
ziness, headaches and
nausea. None of the cases
was considered serious and
most of the girls were
quickly released from hos-
pitals. A number were re-
admitted over the weekend,
complaining of the same
symptoms.
Israeli army doctors
claimed that the symptoms,
while genuine, were the re-
sult of mass hysteria in-
duced by Palestinian ter-
rorists to discredit Israel.
That view was shared by
_ Gen. Shlomo Illia, head of
the Israeli civil administra-
tion on the West Bank.
Police reported Tuesday
that they arrested the oc-
cupants of two cars who

were touring Nablus warn-
ing the local residents not to
drink the water because it
was poisoned. The police did
not identify them or say how
many persons were ar-
rested.
The director general of
the Israel Health Minis-
try, Dr. Baruch Modan,
described to the Cabinet
in detail Wednesday the
scientific characteristics
of the "mass phenom-
enon" which apparently
affected hundreds of
West Bank school girls
who claimed they were
poisoned. Dr. Modan
cited medical literature
to show precedents for
such cases, stressing that
they always affect
women or girls rather
than men.
He said it was beyond
doubt from the most exten-
sive tests undertaken in
several Israeli hospitals
that any physical poisoning
was involved. He indicated

that there was an
"environmental cause" for
the original outbreak in the
village of Arrabe (where 60
girls took sick) — but sub-
sequently there was aR `mass
phenomenon." (Modan de-
liberately refrained from
saying "mass hysteria.")

UNITED NATIONS

night that Secretary Gen-

cause and effects of the seri-

JERUSALEM — The
1983 Carol Karp Prize has
been awarded to Saharon
Shelah, Robinson Professor
of Mathematics at the He-
brew University, "for his
work on the number of
nonisomorphic models of
first order theories."
Prof. Shelah, 37, suc-
ceeded in resolving a prob-
lem which has preoccupied
logicians for years, concern-
ing the classification of first
order theories by few in-
variants.
The prize, established by
the Association for Sym-
bolic Logic in memory of
Carol Karp, a logician at the
University of Maryland, is
awarded once every five
years.
