Begin's Personal Reasons' Cancel Washington Visit

(Continued from Page 1)

While the cancellation of
his trip to Washington was
unexpected, it had been ru-
mored for several weeks
that it might be put off.
Those rumors were con-
stantly denied by Begin's
spokesmen. Only Wednes-
day morning, aides an-
nounced that Begin would

fly to Washington on Mon-
day, hold two days of talks
with Reagan and top Ad-
ministration officials, re-
ceive a delegation of na-
tional Jewish leaders in
Washington, and fly home
to Israel Friday morning.
Begin's cancellation of
the U.S. visit raised a storm
of speculation in Israel over

Arbitrator to Hammer Out
Accord for Israeli Doctors

Representatives of the gov-
ernment and government-
employed doctors agreed
this week that Uzi Elam, Is-
rael Atomic Energy Com-
mission chairman, will
serve as arbitrator of the is-
sues in the doctors' strike
which ended earlier this
month with an agreement
to seek binding arbitration.
The basic issues he will
deal with are the size of sal-
ary increases and the period
of time over which they
must be paid and the length
of the work week for doctor
on duty. at hospitals.
Elam now has 40 days in
which to present his
recommendations. He will
be assisted by Hillel Dudai,
representing the Treasury,
and Dr. Haim Zakuk, de-
puty chairman of the Israel
Medical Association, acting
on behalf of the doctors.

The selection of Elam, a
reserve Brig. Gen., ended
the threat of a renewed

strike by doctors who
had accused the govern-
ment of deliberately de-
laying the appointment
of an arbitrator. But it
was the doctors who re-
portedly rejected 30 can-
didates proposed by the
government. The Attor-
ney General, for reasons
not disclosed, was said to
have vetoed other names
agreed to by the doctors
and government repre-

Regarding the efforts
of the OSI, Ryan said that
about. 700 people have
been investigated.
"We've prosecuted 32
and 26 of those cases are
still in court. There are 12
denaturalization cases
and 14 deportation cases
pending. Five people

Meanwhile, Begin has
indicated that he will ac-
cept an invitation to visit
West Germany which is
likely to be extended by
Chancellor Helmut Kohl
when he visits Israel Aug.

Die Welt reported Sun-
day, however, that ac-
ceptance of the invitation
does not mean that Begin
will actually come to Bonn.

It is protocol for the visiting
head of a foreign govern-
ment to invite his host to re-
ciprocate. The West Ger-
man authorities, preparing
for Kohl's visit to
Jerusalem, wanted to make
sure that Begin would agree
and thus avoid an affront.
According to Die Welt,
past experience indicated
that there will be no visit
here by an Israeli Premier
for several years, by which
time it will probably be Be-
gin's successor.

West German sources
said Begin's readiness to ac-
cept an invitation- from
Kohl demonstrated that
much of the damage done
Bonn-Israel relations in the
recent past was due to
former Chancellor Helmut
Schmidt's demonstrative

refusal to visit Israel while
he was in office, although an
invitation had been ex-
tended as far back as 1975.
In May 1981, Begin
launched a bitter personal
attack on Schmidt and his
government's Middle East

Meanwhile, administra-
tive and technical employes
of the Health Ministry
staged a second, day-long
"warning strike" at hospi-
tals and Ministry offices
Monday. They walked out
for 24 hours last week to
press demands for the im-
plementation of a 10-year-
old government • promise to
equalize their pay and
working conditions with
those of employees of Kupat

OSI Director to Step Down

Allan Ryan, Jr., the director
of the Justice Department's
office of Special Investiga-
tions, said here that he in-
tends to leave his position as
head of the agency next
month. The OSI is responsi-
ble for investigating and
prosecuting alleged Nazi
war criminals.
Ryan, who has served as,
director of the OSI since Ap-
ril, 1980, said he will leave
shortly after submitting a
report on his special inves-
tigation into the reported
connections between
American intelligence and
Klaus Barbie, the former
head of gestapo of Lyon,
France during the Nazi oc-
cupation in 1942-1944.
Barbie was expelled from
Bolivia last February and
returned to France where
he now faces trial on
charges of crimes against
In an interview with the
New York Times last
week, Ryan said he felt it
was time to move on and
"give someone else a
chance" as head of the OSI.
"I don't consider myself a
Nazi-hunter," Ryan said. "I
consider myself a pro-

ported," he said.

The complexities of the
legal process and the time
spent in what could amount
to as many as seven sepa-
rate "forums" poses the
difficulties which have re-
sulted in just one deporta-
tion, Ryan noted.

Nazis Gain
Prison Leave

BONN (JTA) — The con-
stitutional court in
Karlsruhe has ruled that
Nazi war criminals serving
prison sentences are
entitled to leave from
prison, as are other pris-
oners, regardless of the
gravity of their crimes.
The ruling, by the highest
court in West Germany, re-
versed a dec4ion by a court
in Hessen in the case of two
former Nazi officials who
sued the state after their
applications for leave were
denied in 1979 because of
the serious nature of their

The prisoners, aged 78
and 79, are serving sen-
tences of 23 and 16 years,
respectively. They had been
found guilty of the mass kil-
ling of Jews during World
War. II.

The court acknowledged
that complicity in crimes of
the Nazi era demanded se-
vere penalties but it ruled
that this does not justify a
denial of rights granted all
prisoners under the law,
