One Gets Hanged, the Other
Hung — At a recent convention of
Israeli accountants, President
Chaim Herzog met Edward Men-
delevy, his income tax collector.
Quipped Herzog: "As a general
rule, taxpayers would like to hang
their tax collector, but I'm the
only taxpayer in the country who
, is hung on the wall of the tax col-
lector," a reference to the custom
that the President's picture is dis-
played in most government
New Laurels for Israel Medical
Training — The New England
Journal of Medicine reports that
in 1981 a total of 79 Americans
who had studied medicine in Is-
rael took the American exams to
practice medicine in the United
States. Whereas only about two-
thirds of Americans who had
studied in France and Italy passed
the license examinations, all 79
graduates from Israel were ac-
Up in the Air — The longest
overhead cable car in the world
between two points is now being
constructed by the Israel army on
Mount Hermon, according to the
military weekly, Bamahaneh.
Orthodox Music — One of the
Knesset members on the Morasha
list is Rabbi Avraham Verdiger,
who lives in an ultra-Orthodox
neighborhood. He is a gifted piano
player and enjoys music, his favo-
rite composer being Shos-
takovich. Verdiger explains why
he never goes to concerts: If there
were separate seating for men and
women I would be happy to go."
It's the Discipline — A young
Israeli soldier, cornered after
engaging in a bank robbery, de-
fied all attempts by police, family,
friends and psychologists to get
him to come out. Brandishing his
gun, he held them all at bay. His
top sergeant was then summoned,
and the latter barked out in sten-
torian tone: You come out of
there at once!" The boy dropped
his gun and emerged meekly.
The Best Gift — It is customary
for many large firms to give New
Year gifts to their employees,
ranging from household
appliances to books or gift certifi-
cates. This year a number of com-
panies gave their staff certificates
valid for a complete cardiological
Criticism of the Electric Com-
pany — Knesset member Yuval
Neeman, who is an advocate of
large families, complained that
all recent power failures were
during morning and noon hours.
He urged that electricity black-
outs should be timed for periods
when they would be apt to in-
crease the national birth rate.

Tel Aviv (ZINS) — Israeli polit-
ical scientist Asher Arian sees a
cloudy future for the Labor
Alignment. He wrote in Davar
that only 30 percent of the
Sephardi community in Israel
supports Labor, and the Sephar-
dim make up 55 percent of the
electorate. More than 70 percent •
of the Ashkenazim support Labor.

standards. Ata was given a year to
show improvement. Marks and
Spencer withdrew its business
from Ata over a year ago. (Ironi-
cally, Marks and Spencer was es-
tablished and is headed by the
Marks and Sieff families whose
strong Zionist connections date
back to the early years of the
world Zionist movement.
Meanwhile, public approval of
the unity government's handling
of Israel's economic crisis rose last
month, according to an opinion
poll published Tuesday. The poll
showed that just over half of the
adult Jewish population — 50.7
percent — was dissatisfied in No-
vember, down fpm 69.2 percent
The margin of approval rose in
the same period from 22.1 to 44.4
percent. The poll also showed that
59.4 percent of the respondents
favored extension of the three-
month freeze after it expires in

are trying to maintain production
at the Ata textile mills on Haifa
Bay to improve the chances of
finding a buyer for the giant tex-
tile combine, the largest single
employer in the Haifa area.
A Haifa District Court has or-
dered the Cotton Marketing
Board to continue selling Ata raw
cotton. The Board has refused so
far because of an outstanding debt
of nearly $2 million.
Ata, once a showpiece of private
industrial enterprise in Israel,
with plants on Haifa Bay and in
Galilee, went into bankruptcy fol-
lowing the loss of its largest over-
seas customer. The receivers ap-
pointed were given the task of
preserving the business and the
jobs of its 8,000 employees. Nor-
mally, receivers preside over the
liquidation of an enterprise to
ensure maximum reimbursement
of its creditors.
The Ministry of Trade and In-
dustry has been looking for a suit-
able buyer or investment syndi-
cate, so far without success. Ariel
Sharon, the Minister of Trade and
Industry, has been in New York
for the past month pursuing his
$50 million libel suit against
Ata's troubles began more than
two years ago when its biggest
foreign customer, the Marks and
Spencer department store chain
in Britain, warned the company
that the quality of its products
was falling below the chain's high
