'Oh, he'll publish anything.'
"So far, we were right in the
things we published. For in-
stance, on interferon we pub-
lished the first (study of) chronic
lymphositic leukemia in a major
journal saying it did not work.
Everyone's reproducing that now.
I was the first one to say that.
Everyone expected it to work be-
cause it worked in similar dis-
eases. But it didn't."
Also, he said, his group was the
first to publish a study on lym-
phoma interferon, describing
"very positive results" which are
being reproduced now "by
everyone."
Although there are hundreds of
scientists trying to develop an-
tibodies, Foon said, he is among
the first in the world to do clinical
research with antibodies — that
is, put them into various patients
with leukemias and other malig-
nacies.
"We were among the three or

four groups in the world to do
that," Foon said, not to brag, but
in response to a question. "So I
built a good part of my reputation
on antibody trials and due to that
kind of work I think it's fair to say
that in clinical research with
patients 1 am one of the top five or
six."
Groups concentrating on such
research, he said, are at NCI,
Stanford University, California
San Diego and Harvard. And,
Foon is developing a staff at
Michigan to do the same work.
There are now 25 full-time and
ten part-time physicians and sci-
entists in the Hematology and
Oncology division in the U-M De-
partment of Medicine.
Outside his work, Dr. Foon
enjoys following baseball and
football. But his first love in
sports is boxing. He's even got a
poster of himself in boxing trunks
and gloves proclaiming a "Fight
Against Cancer." 0

Symposium Explores
Territories' Future

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The deep
division between the partners in
the Labor-Likud unity coalition
government over the future of
the administered territories was
emphasized at a Haifa Univer-
sity symposium last week at
which American diplomats also
expressed their views.
The closing session was ad-
dressed by Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin. The topic was a
third state between Israel and
Jordan. Rabin, who stressed
that he was advancing his own
opinions which he admitted had
little chance of acceptance by
the present coalition, warned
that it would be a major mistake
to attempt to impose Israeli
sovereignty over the territories.
It would block the hope for
peace and create a bi-national
state with a permanent Pale-
stinian problem 'which would
destroy Israel's character as a
democratic Jewish State, he
said.
Those arguments were dis-
missed by Eliahu Ben-Elissar of
Herut and Yehuda Ben-Meir of

the National Religious part)
who insisted on full Jewish
sovereignty over the entire
West Bank.
Harold Saunders, former U.S.
Assistant Secretary of State for
Near Eastern and South Asian
Affairs, a participant in the
- symposium, said the only way
to test the positions of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion was to negotiate with it.
"Both you (Israelis) and we have
talked to them when we needed
to," he said. He, stressed that
the U.S. had no difficulty talk-
ing about self-determination for
the Palestinians, even though it
is hedged by realities on the
ground.
Saunders said an eventual
solution would have to involve
elements of confederation, with
political expression for the
Palestinians.
Rabin proposed an interim
solution under an umbrella of
cooperation between Israel, Jor-
dan and moderate Palestinians
who would share responsibility
for the territories.
