Labor Party challenges Begin's health
TEL AVIV (AP) - The opposition
Labor Party has challenged Menachem
Begin's physical and mental fitness to
serve as prime minister, touching off a
new political storm in Israel.
The direct personal attack on Begin
came at a closed Labor Party meeting
Thursday night. It was widely reported
by the Israeli media that former Prime
Minister Golda Meir said Begin was ill
and others questioned his mental state.
SOURCES close to Begin, who would
not allow their names published,
described the accusations as "slan-
derous." Begin himself viewed such
remarks "with quiet contempt," they
As the political battle pushed the
larger issues of Mideast peace into the
background, Begin's doctor issued a
statement that the prime minister was
not "under the influence of medications
which affect his abilities or his moods."
Begin, 64, suffers heart trouble and
diabetes and is often reported to be in
The attack on Begin was the sharpest
yet mounted by Labor, which was
ousted by the voters last year from its
29-year hold on the government.
THE POLITICAL nature of the at-
tack was seen as a prelude to a full-
scale debate on faltering Mideast peace
efforts in Parliament next week and a
motion of no-confidence in the gover-
Meir was not available for comment
Friday, but she was reported to have
questioned whether Begin was in full
control of his senses and said that "the
sickness cannot justify anything."
Former Finance Minister Yehoshua
Rabinowitz said Begin's behavior "was
that of a person who is not normal. The
joy, the gaiety - it frightened me."

THE IMMEDIATE cause of the
Labor outburst was Begin's Wednesday
shouting match in Parliament with
Shimon Peres over the Labor leader's
trip last week to Austria where he con-
ferred with Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat on the Mideast.
Peres accused the prime minister of
an isolationist policy, while Begin sup-
porters' charged the Labor leader with
"trying to rise to power on Sadat's
Begin was reportedly worried that
the Austria meeting would undercut
Israel's bargaining position and that
Sadat would use it to put pressure on
the Begin government. Begin also
vetoed a proposal that Peres seek a
meeting with King ussein of Jordan on
Mideast peace proposals.

DETROIT (UPI)-The Board of
State Canvassers has again ruled
Oakland County Sheriff Johannes
Spreen off the ballot in his bid for the
Democratic nomination forgovernor.
The canvassers, in a 4-0 decision
yesterday, ruled that Spreen was more
than 2,000 short of the 17,764 nominating
signatures he needed to get into the
THE CANVASSERS earlier denied
Spreen a spot on the ballot due to an in-
sufficient number of signatures, but he
convinced the Court of Appeals to order
the board to reconsider that ruling.
The court told the canvassers to take
a second look at more than 400 disputed
signatures. Of those, 399 were voided
because the circulators failed to date
the petitions and 19 were invalidated
because the county where the petition
was circulated was not specified.
But on its second review, the can-
vassing board found that even more
signatures were invalid than it had
found on its first look.
Candidates remaining in the
Democratic primary are state Sens.
