agency claims that it is only a
third party negotiator between
the kids and whomever wants to
buy their services," said Dr.
Yitzhak Kadman, who chairs the
National Committee For The
Child. "That is why the whole is-
sue suffers from no [government]
enforcement."
Besides doing such things that
kids should not see, much less do
—including striking sensual pos-
es at the camera — the young
models also miss many school
days, Maariv reports.
The Histadrut, Israel's mega
labor union, finally took down its
red flag (which was modeled af-
ter Communist Russia's) from its
main building in Tel Aviv.
The Histadrut replaced the
red flag, which it had waved
since the 1920s, with a white and
purple flag, Yediot Aharonot re-
ports.
It is not clear, however, why
it took the Histadrut longer
than the Soviet Union to realize
that red only suits bullfighters'
capes. ❑

If former Chief Rabbi Ovadia
Yosef has his way, TV's hottest
new satirical program here will
disappear from Israeli screens.
Called "Hartzufim," it is similar
to the popular British program
"Spitting Image," where ridicu-
lous statements emerge from the
mouths of puppets designed to
look like members of the Royal
Family, eminent churchmen and
top politicians.
"Hartzufim," following the
same formula, makes fun of lead-
ing figures in Israeli public life.
Most viewers find this hilarious,
but Rabbi Yosef, one of those
most often satirized, is not
amused.
He doesn't, of course, see the
show because it is screened on
Friday night. But what he has
heard about it has sent him into
orbit, and he stridently demands
that it be axed. Rabbi Yosef is
backed up, of course, by Shas, the
political party of observant
Sephardic Jews which he estab-
lished and controls.
Some leading politicians also
have had complaints against the
producers of "Hartzufim," but for
exactly the opposite reason. They
have indignantly asked why they
are not being featured on the pro-
gram. And when it was ex-
plained to them that only a
limited number of puppets had
been made because each one
costs $3,000, the politicos offered
to pay $3,000 each out of their
own pocket just for the privilege
