Peres Wants To Release
Government Workers

Jerusalem (JTA) — Premier
Shimon Peres said Tuesday that
the government was determined
to dismiss another three percent
of the civil service workforce.
This, he said, would be in addi-
tion to the first round of dismis-
sals, yet to be implemented,
which constituted another three
percent of the civil service work-
force.
The government wants to go
ahead with the dismissals be-
cause it claims that the Histad-
rut has continued in its rejection
of further cuts in wages. Peres
said dring a visit to the de-
velopment town of Shlomi in the
Galilee that the government and
Histadrut remained far apart on
the issue.
The Civil Service Union,
meanwhile, stepped up its de-
mands to introduce a five-day
work week into the public sector
as an alternative to mass dismis-
sals. Deputy Secretary of the
clerical Workers Union, Moshe
Beit-Dagan, said a five-day work
week could immediately save the
government 10 percent in wages,
as well as certain operating
costs. The worker, for his part,
would lose between five and
seven percent of his net pay.
In a related event, all public
hospitals in Israel drastically re-
duced medical services, last
week by order of the Ministry of
Health.
Only emergency surgery will
be performed from now on. Only
patients requiring emergency
treatment will be admitted.
Out-patient clinics will be closed
and all patients presently in
hospital will be discharged ex-
cept in cases where their health
would be endangered. It is not
clear- how hospitals operated by
Kupat Cholim, the Histadrut
sick fund, will be affected.
Health Minister Mordechai
Gur said the extreme measures
are necessary because his minis-
try has failed to persuade the
Treasury to provide the funds
necessary to continue normal
`hospital service. An estimated
$60 million is needed to keep the

public hospital functioning at

Meanwhile, the Employment
Bureau and the national Insur-
ance Institute opened shop in a
makeshift but opposite the
locked gates of the Ata textile
mills. Its purpose is to register
former Ata employees for unem7
ployment insurance and retrain-
ing.
Only 150 of the nearly 2,000
workers made jobless when the
bankrupt mills were shut down
by court order showed up. Of th-
ose, only 30 registered for ret-
raining courses.
However, Israel's diamond in-
dustry has made a better re-
covery from the world slump
than its counterparts abroad, ac-
cording to Moshe Schintzer,
president of the Israel Diamond
Exchange.
This year's exports are run-
ning 11 percent ahead of last
year'S Schitzer said. Israel's
diamond industry has paid off all
of its indebtedness to banks
which amounted to a staggering
$1.25 billion only three years
ago. Now the industry is operat-
ing with a lean working capital
of no more than $250 million,
borrowed from banks.

Rabbi Fined
For Hitting Boy

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
Jerusalem Magistrates Court
handed down a three-month
suspended sentence, and ordered
a fine of 200,000 shekels for
Rabbi Moshe Levinger of Heb-
ron for striking a six-year-old
Arab boy in Hebron last year.
The incident took place after a
stone was thrown at Levinger's
son in the town's center.
Levinger reportedly entered the
house from which he suspected
the stone had been thrown, and
questioned the child who refused
to answer.. At that point he
smacked him across the face.

Several thousand Orthodox Jews held a prayer session in July before
the Western Wall in Jerusalem. They were protesting a plan to open a
Mormon center on the Mount of Olives, claiming it would lead to
missionary activities. Both of Israel's chief rabbis participated in the
demonstration, including Rabbi Schapiro ,abovg,
