scary to take on the job. But
I took it with the intention of
shaking up the WZO and the
Jewish Agency.
"The organization is doing
great things and it has even
greater potential for the
future."
One of the primary goals of
the new chairman will be to
eliminate functions that are
duplicated by the Israeli
government, particularly in
the area of immigrant absorp-
tion, and generally tackle
waste and inefficiency in a
body that is notorious for
both.
Nothing in the career of
Simcha Dinitz thus far has
prepared him for the kind of
opposition and outright
obstruction he is certain to
encounter from entrenched
bureaucratic and political in-

terests determined to protect
their jobs, budgets and perks
from a new broom.
"He is," said one source,
"going to have to show he can
play hard-ball with kid
gloves!"

The stakes are high: no less
than the survival of the
Zionist movement are riding
on the Dinitz term of office.
If he succeeds in giving the
Jewish Agency and WZO a
renewed sense of purpose and
self-respect he will have
earned himself an indelible
place in Jewish history and
the enduring gratitude of
Jews everywhere.

If he fails, Simcha Dinitz
may be remembered simply
as the 16th — and last —
chairman of the Zionist
movement.

Dinitz Begins Tenure
By Tightening Belts

Jerusalem (JTA) — Simcha
Dinitz ordered tough cost-
cutting measures Sunday, his
first day in office as chairman
of the World Zionist Organ-
ization Executive.
Dinitz, a Labor member of
the Knesset and former am-
bassadr to the United States,
is concentrating WZO ac-
tivities in Jerusalem. He
ordered the closure of his Tel
Aviv office and instructed the
heads of all WZO depart-
ments to do the same and
work the full week in
Jerusalem.
In addition, Dinitz froze
short- and long-term missions
abroad scheduled for the next
few weeks, pending review.
All contracts with outside
companies will be reviewed
and all intended new appoint-
ments to positions in the
WZO will be held up, subject
to review.
Dinitz was elected to the
post Dec. 7 by the 31st World
Zionist Congress. He defeated
his Likud challenger, Science
and Industry Minister Gideon
Patt, by a vote of 310-220. The
election was by secret ballot.
The congress ended in an
uproar at dawn Dec. 11, with
delegates hurling potted
plants and other objects at
each other on the dais. At
issue was the size of a broad
executive of the World Zionist
Organization that is to func-
tion alongside a smaller
operational executive. Labor
representatives wanted the
broad body to comprise 51
members, while Likud sought
a smaller number.
Both major parties have
nominated their key figures
from the previous executive to

serve on the new one, but
behind-the-scenes negotia-
tions throughout the week-
long congress failed to pro-
duce agreement on the alloca-
tion of the chairmanships of
the departments here of the
WZO.
Congress sources said the
Likud would almost certain-
ly hold the treasury, though
its candidate, Matityahu
Drobles, was not favored by
the American fund raisers
and might not win their con-
sent. The fund raisers had
nixed the candidacy of WZO
treasurer Akiva Lewinsky for
chairman of the executive.
The sources predicted that
the Likud would continue to
hold the co-chairmanship of
the key settlement depart-
ment, despite Labor's
strenuous efforts to govern
this department alone. Labor
hopes to win the aliya depart-
ment, which was held by
Herut in the previous ex-
