Worried About
How You'll
Look With A
Hearing Aid?

Chicago, Ill.—A free of-
fer of special interest to
those who hear but do
not understand words
has been announced by
Beltone. A non-operat-
ing model of one of the
smallest Beltone aids of
its kind will be given
absolutely free to anyone
requesting it.
It's yours for the ask-
ing, so send for it now. It
is not a real hearing aid,
but it will show you how
tiny hearing help can be.
The actual aid weighs
less than a fourth of an
ounce, and it's all at ear
level, in one unit.
These models are, free,
so we suggest you write
for yours now. Again,
we repeat, there is no
cost, and certainly no
obligation. All hearing
problems are not alike
and some cannot be
helped by a hearing aid
but many can. Thou-
sands have already been
mailed, so write today to

Dept. 45200, Beltone Elec-
tronics Corporation, 4201
W. Victoria St., Chicago,
IL 60646.

Israeli Budget Facing Chopping Block

(Continued from Page 1)
far no agreements were
reached. The Treasury pro-
posed to reduce the deficit
some 15 billion shekels
($150 million) by taxing
allowances for the elderly
and abolishing child care
allowances for the first and
second child in large
families. The same meas-
ures, suggested last year by
former Finance Minister
Yoram Aridor, were re-
jected by the Cabinet in Oc-
tober.
The Knesset House
Committee,' meanwhile,
decided to cut the
salaries of Knesset mem-
bers by 10 percent and to
ask MKs to take an addi-
tional 10 percent cut vol-
untarily. The money
saved would be turned
over to the Treasury. The
MKs got a 57 percent
raise in salary in October.
But Yossi Sarid of the
Labor Alignment opposed
the salary cut. He con-
tended that the money
raised would not find its
way to the general budget
but would be used for some
cause dear to the Likud re-
gime such as building new
settlements in the occupied
territories.
According to an opinion
poll published in the
Jerusalem Post on Tuesday,
72 percent of the public put
settlement building on the
West Bank at the top of the
list of proposed budget cuts

within the framework of a
national austerity program.
According to the poll, this
view was shared by both
Labor and Likud voters.
Other expendable items
in order or priority were de-
velopment projects such as
the Lavie, and the
Mediterranean-Dead Sea
Canal (52 percent); higher
education (29 percent); and
the absorption of new im-
migrants (27 percent).
In another develop-
ment, Bank of Israel
Governor Moshe Man-
delbaum urged the pub-
lic not to withdraw cash
from their bank accounts
even though interest
charges on overdrafts
are slightly higher than
inflation. Israelis are
allowed to write checks
in amounts in excess of
their bank balance and
are charged a high rate of
interest for the privilege.
It is deducted quarterly.
Customers at most banks
had interest on their over-
draft for the last quarter de-
ducted from their accounts
Tuesday. The banks warned
that if the public continued
to incur overdraft debts at
the October-December
level, they would have to
pay double the amount of
interest three months from
now.
Decisions to cut govern-
ment spending are ham-
pered not only by ministe-
rial conflicts, but also by
party demands: Tami repre-
sents the generally im-
poverished Sephardic com-
munity; the National Reli-
gious Party holds the Edu-
cation portfolio and refuses
to accept the proposed aboli-
tion of free high school edu-
cation; the Aguda Israel
yeshivas are heavily sub-
sidized by the government;
and the ultra-nationalist
Tehiya has threatened to
quit the Likud coalition if
there is any freeze on set-
tlement building in the
occupied territories, regard-
less of the economic drain
they represent.
These small parties pro-
vide the swing votes be-
tween the ruling Likud co-

alition and the opposition
Labor Alignment.
Government ministries
were seriously disrupted
by work slow-downs this
week as civil service em-
ployees continued to
press for higher pay. At
the Foreign Ministry,
where the staff has
threatened to shut down
the entire foreign affairs
establishment, foreign
diplomats were refused
entry by workers man-
ning the gates.

try employees demon-
strated outside the Treas-
ury, jeering at Cohen-
Orgad. He refused to come
out to speak to them and
condemned their strike as
an act of cruelty toward
needly welfare recipients.
A slow-down is in effect at
the Interior Ministry where

clerks refused to issue
passports, identity cards
and other official docu-
ments. At the Defense
Ministry in Tel Aviv, offi-
cials refused to issue checks
to suppliers.
The work slow-downs and
stoppages at the govern-
ment offices are a manifes-
tation of widespread labor
unrest owing mainly to the
erosion of salaries by
triple-digit inflation.
Israel's inflation rate
for 1983 is expected to be
near 200 percent, and is
projected at 280 percent
for 1984.
On Monday, the gover-
ment announced new cuts
in subsidies for food, elec-
tricity and fuel, in effect
doubling the price of basic
foods since October.

YOU RARELY SEE USED SAABS
FOR SALE BECAUSE 'THERE'S
RARELYA REASON TO WU:THEM.

The longer Saab owners hold on to their cars, the more they like them.
But that's no surprise when you consider what there is about a Saab to like.
For superb performance, Saabs are equipped with a fuel-injected engine
that ,ombines excellent drivability with the economy of cylinders.
When it comes to cargo space, Saabs have as much room as a station
wagon-- up to 56.5 cubic feet.
And as far as styling goes, Saabs have no sharp angular corners, so •
there's nu cause for air turbulei,c.e. Even its rear end is snaped to give it effi-
cient air b.-eak iway.
So if you now find yourselc interested in a Saab, come test drive a new one.
You might not be able to get your hands on a used one.
