over who was to blame for
the crisis.
With thousands of doctors

demands and scores collaps-
ing from weakness, Hadas-
sah Hospital closed its Mt.

Safed Hospital shut down
completely and Rambam
Hospital in Haifa closed its
doors to all patients except

TORONTO (JTA)— Mar-
tin Hattersley has resigned
as leader of the Social Cre-
dit Party in Alberta, charg-
ing that the party was
headed in the direction of
Nazi Germany.
Hattersley, 49, quit in
anger after a 33-31 vote by
members to reinstate three
party officials recently
ousted for publicly making
anti-Semitic statements.
One of them, Jim Keegstra,
Mayor of the village of
Eckville, was restored to the
office of first vice president
from which he was removed
after his dismissal from the
lcoal high school. Keegstra,
a teacher for 14 years, had
been preaching to classes
that Jews are the root of all
evil in the world and that
the Holocaust never oc-
curred.

ment offer as "the same old
formula in new dress."
Medical students joined
the hunger strike Wednes-
day and they, along with
hundreds of doctors, main-
tained a silent vigil outside
the Prime Minister's office
in Jerusalem.
Meanwhile, the Knesset
rocked with the din of
hurled insults.
The Labor opposition
supported a proposal for
binding arbitration to end
the strike. The government
appeared willing for a time.
It promised to resort to arbi-
tration if negotiations fail to
produce a settlement in the
next two days, but only on
condition that the Labor
Alignment abstain in a vote
on a no-confidence motion
submitted by the Hadash
Communist Party.
But the government
withdrew its offer after it
was vetoed by Finance
Minister Yoram Aridor
who is opposed to any
sort of salary com-
promise that arbitration
might produce. Aridor,
who insists that the 22
percent national wage
increase ceiling .must be
maintained at all costs,
has threatened to resign
if outside arbitrators are
brought into the conflict.

support a Communist mo-
tion."
Prime Minister Begin did
not speak during the turbu-
lent session, but later he
announced that he had
summoned Aridor and
Shostak to resume talks
with representatives of the
medical association. Begin
himself had met with a
group of doctors earlier at
the Hebrew University-
Hadassah Medical Center
in Ein Kerem.
The doctors told him that
the hunger strike would end
if he promised binding arbi-
tration. But Aridor contin-
ued to refuse. He was sup-
ported by Interior Minister
Yosef Burg.

Labor voted for the no-
confidence motion which
was easily defeated by a
61-50 vote. Health Minister
Eliezer Shostak responded
with a scathing attack on
the Laborites. "Your hands
have spilled this blood," he
shouted, _"and now those
same hands are raised to

At Soroka Hospital in
Beersheba, where the
hunger strike began last
week in an attempt to force
a settlement of the four
month-old strike by . gov-
ernment employed physi-
cians, pregnant women
about to give birth were
turned away. The director of
Beilinson Hospital in Petah
Tikva, one of the country's
largest, resigned in protest
against the government's
delays in dealing with the
issues of doctors' salaries
and working conditions.
The situation was de-
scribed as critical for
weak or prematurely-
born infants who were
left in the care of nurses
at most hospitals in the
absence of pediatricians.
In many hospitals, fast-
ing doctors were occupy-
ing beds, too weak to
function. Others were
being fed intravenously
to maintain minimum
strength.
The doctors appeared de-
termined however to resort
to desperate measures to
press their demands. They
