IDF patrol
kills terrorist

Tel Aviv (JTA) - An
Arab terrorist was killed in
a clash with an IDF patrol
on the eastern sector of the
Lebanon front July 19, the
army said. There were no
casualties among the Is-
raelis.
An army spokesman said
the IDF patrol encountered
a terrorist band at about
midnight, some four
kilometers east of Afik. Is-
raeli patrols have been
searching the area, where
several attacks have been
launched against the IDF in
recent weeks.
The terrorists are be-
lieved to have come to the
Israeli-patrolled area from
the Bekaa Valley region of
Lebanon controlled by the
Syrians.

MDA workers
end walkout

Tel Aviv (JTA) - A
back-to-work order by the
Health Ministry ended the
strike last week of some 800
employes of the Magen
Dovid Adorn, Israel's coun-
terpart of the Red Cross.
They had walked off the job
in a wage dispute forcing
the suspension of ambu-
lance services, including
mobile intensive care units
for heart attack victims and
the closure of blood banks at
MDA centers.

Jewish elderly convene in capital
to discuss problems of the aged

Washington (JTA) -
Jewish senior citizens held
their first national confer-
ence here last month to dis-
cuss the problems affecting
the Jewish aged, and how
they might be solved.
The National Conference
of Jewish Community
Senior Advocacy Groups
convened June 24-25.
Sam Sadin, who chaired
the conference, noted that it
represented "the first at-
tempt by Jewish commu-
nity groups throughout the
country to meet together on
issues concerning the el-
derly.P^ He urged Jewish
groups nationwide to devote
more of their resources to
services for the aged, point-
ing out that Jews have a
higher percentage of elderly
than any other ethnic group
in the country.
The delegates, represent-
ing 19 Jewish-sponsored
senior citizen programs in
11 states focussed on the
problem of health care in
the U.S. Eric Shulman of
the National Council of
Senior Citizens told a work-
shop session that health
care costs have increased
1,000 percent in the past 20
years.
Jack Christy of the
American Association of
Retired Persons (AARP)
said the solution lies in
limiting those costs and re-
structuring the system. Dr.
Arthur Flemming, former
Secretary of Health, Educa-
tion and Welfare, said "We

plot exposed

can't move forward on any
health issue unless we
tackle the issue of cost con-
tainment."
Participants in the con-
ference proposed at its close
the formation of an on-going

steering committee to serve
as a clearing house for in-
formation about legislative
issues and methods of social
action that will serve
Jewish senior citizen advo-
cacy groups.
