New York (JTA) — Negotia-
tions with high-ranking
Chinese officials are under-
way for the establishment of
an ORT center in Wuhan, ac-
cording to David Hermelin of
Detroit, president of
American ORT Federation.
The People's Republic of
China apporached American
ORT Federation with a re-
quest for training programs
designed to help teachers,
managers and industrial per-
sonnel develop their
technological know-how.
Meanwhile, the ORT School
of Engineering in Jerusalem
will open an advanced
teacher training program to
help meet Israel's growing
need for teachers in high
technology fields.
Hermelin said the new
teacher training institute was
approved by Israel's minister
of education and culture, Yit-
zhak Navon.
The training program, first
of its kind in ORT's network
of 113 schools and training
centers in Israel, will qualify
teachers in advanced elec-
tronics technology in the in-
itial courses.
Hermelin noted that ORT
programs in Israel "include
training in computer science,
robotics, laser technology,
fiber optics, computer-aided
design and manufacture,
electro-optics and the
technology of composite
materials."
In his recent address to 500
delegates at the group's na-
tional conference here,
Hermelin noted enrollment
in ORT schools expanded by
36 percent in 1988, growing
to nearly 200,000 students in
35 countries, including
Hungary, India, Morocco, and
countries in Latin America.
Five new schools also joined
the ORT Israel Network,
bringing the total to 113.
More schools applied to join
but had to be turned away for
lack of resources.
Hermelin said the four-year
teacher institute in Israel
"represents a milestone in
the ORT global network as
the school will be the first
ORT college to grant the
bachelor's degree."
Soviet immigrants in Tel
Aviv, Jerusalem and Ashdod
are now among recent
graduates of a new ORT in-
stitute for adult training.
The majority are scientists,
computer programmers and
engineers who earned college
degrees in the Soviet Union
and needed to update their
educations to be more
employable.

Hermelin described the pro-
spering ORT programs in
Latin America — second
largest ORT program next to
Israel — and in Europe, where
France's 5,000 students in
eight schools is the conti-
nent's largest.
Hermelin also noted last
year's birth of the Anne
Frank Day School program in
Budapest, marking the
return of ORT to Hungary
after 40 years.
ORT is the Organization for
Rehabilitation Through
Training.

PLO Criticism
Of Israel Fails

United Nations (JTA) —
The Palestine Liberation
Organization has failed in its
two-week attempt to convince
United Nations Security
Council members to agree on
a statement critical of tough
new measures by Israel in the
administered territories.
Security Council members
were unable to reach the con-
sensus necessary for a state-
ment, after the United States
said a draft was one-sided and
should be rewritten to call for
restraint on both sides of the
14-month-old Palestinian up-
rising.
The United States is one of
five permanent members of
the council, each with the
power to veto resolutions.
Any move to break the
stalemate will have to wait
until the new president of the
Security Council, Am-
bassador Jai Pratap Rana of
Nepal, sets an agenda for the
coming weeks. Rana's one-
month term as president
began last week.
According to a source at
Israel's mission to the United
Nations, the PLO "pulled
back their request for a one-
sided statement when it was
asked that restraint be exer-
cised by both sides. That tells
you where they're at."
