DAILY DIGEST FEBRUARY 22, 1977
TEL AVIV, Israel - Israel's
Labor party opens the most
critical convention in its history
today. The party is suffering
from internal divisions and a
serious challenge to its unbrok-
en 28-year rule of the Jewish
Prime minister Yitzhak Rabin
and Defense minister Shimon
Peres are running an unprece-
dented neck-and-neck race for
the nomination to lead the par-
ty at elections May 17.
The Labor party's traditional
opposition, the rightwing Likud
Bloc, ras gained strength and
now matches it in opinion polls.
Charges of illegally spending
public funds on election cam-
paigns have pushed the party
into a morass of financial scan-
dal. Labor's left-wing ally is
threatening to defect and a new
grassroots party of reform-mind-
ed intellectuals is growing
stronger by the week.
The convention will open with
pomp and ceremony, attended
by Socialist luminaries like for-
mer West German Chancellor
Willy Brandt and Dutch Prime
Minister Joop den Uyl.
Behind the glitter, the Labor
party knows it is in trouble.
The suffacing corruption has
put a top Labor politician, Ash-
er Yadlin, under arrest, and
drove a Labor cabinet minister,
Avraham Ofer, to suicide. Yad-
lin, convicted last week of tak-
ing $9,000 in real estate kick-
backs, claims the money went
to the party along with millions
more which he says he raised
illegally for the 1973 election.
"Therehas been no coverup,
and there will be none," says

he called the tower and report-

Moments after the radio mnes-

plane's landing gear hit the top
of an airport building, itching
the plane into a storage shed.
The plane did not e cplode. No
other injuries were reported.
The pilot was pull'd from the

LONDON - Dr. David Owen,
minister of state at the Foreign
Office, was appointed foreign
secretary yesterday to replace
Anthony Crosland, who died on
Saturday following a stroke.
Prime Minister James Callag-

changes in his cabinet but re-
tained Chancellor of the Exche-
quer Denis Healey at the helm
of the nation's ailing economy.
Owen has been running t h eG
Foreign Office since Crosland
suffered a stroke on Feb. 13. As
minister of state at the Foreign
Office, he had been Crosland's
right-hand man. He previously'
was minister of state for health.

LUIS BUNUEL'S BIRTHDAY

(Luis Bunuel, 1972) 7:00 ONLY
THE PHANTOM OF LIBERTY
(Luis Bunuel, 1974) 9:00 ONLY
The 77th birthday of Spanish filmmaker Luis Bunuel could not be
better celebrated than with this joint screening of his two most
recent, most provocative, and perhaps most brilliant works. THE
THE DISCREET CHARM.. . and THE PHANTOM OF LIBERTY are
his furthest steps yet into the creation of an ouevre unsurpassed
in the art of cinema. DISCREET CHARM is much more than the
outrageous episodes of a group of chic, uppercrust Parisians who
spend most of the film trying unsuccessfully to dine together.
A piercing examination of the inanities and near-surrealism of
contemporary society, where absurdity and elegance, charm and
hypocrisy become fused. DISCREET CHARM captured the National
Society of Film Critics awards, for Best Picture and Best Director,
as well as the Academy Award for the Best Foreign Film of 1972.
THE PHANTOM OF LIBERTY, a curious sequel to DISCREET
CHARM, is about a decaying lineage; an action begins and the
situation at once goes into something different via a dreamlike
logic; though countless things happen, there is no story to tell.
Among the characters are a courteous sniper, a group of poker-
playing priests, an ostrich who appears in the bedroom of a
couple making love. There is no single correct way to read THE
PHANTOM OF LIBERTY, which is not a rationale for its ambigu-
ities but a rigorous instruction to those who would enjoy all that
is marvelous and poetic in surrealism at its best by one of the
great masters of the cinema, Luis Bunuel. French with subtitles.
