In the board room of the bank, Horowitz was talking to 14 American editors. "The bad news about our economy," said he, "is that we have to have aid. "We cannot exist without gifts which amount to about $150 million a year from Ameri- cans alone, or without the sale of Israeli bonds and without reparations from Germany. Our balance of payments is unfavor- able; we are trying to reduce it to tolerable proportions." Horowitz went on to explain that Israeli's economic plight is closely related to the war. "Our back is to the sea. We have to fight and to make a liv- ing. That means controls -- in our case mostly wage controls -- to try to keep down inflation, and on that score we were suc- cessful in 1968 and 1969. The in- flaUonary pressure is now in- creasing." Five per cent of Israelis live below what the country consi- ders its poverty line, "but the number of Israelis who have incomes of more than $100,000 a year are to be counted in tens, not in hundreds." An average university pro- fessor would make about $500 a month before taxes or $300 a month after taxes, said Horow- itz. Israeli income taxes gradu- ate steeply to the 70 per cent maximum. There is no capital gains tax. House taxes are based on the services the house has, such as utilities or streets. Land taxes are virtually nonex- istent because the government owns more than 90 per cent of the land and leases it for 49 years for use as homes or busi- ness sites. Homes are mostly condominium type apartments. There are few separate dwell- ings. Mortgage money comes high -- 12 per cent or more -- and 10 years is the mortgage term. Israel's rush to irrigate the land, to attract industry, to find sufficient manpower for fighting a war and for financially sup- porting it have caused an awe- some labor shortage. The coun- try is currently transporting about 40,000 Arab workers from their homes in the Jordan West Bank area and returning them home each night. They work in construction and other trades and are paid the full union scale paid to Jew- ish workers. There is no thohght of importing European workers as Switzerland, Germany and some other countries have done, but neither are their plans to let the Arabs of the occupied areas settle permanently in Israel. One of Israel's most serious labor problems stems from the fact that the men and women who do the country's work are mostly the same men and wom- en who fight its war. There is a limit to how many stretches of reserve duty a man can serve. Someone back at the plant or office or kibbutz has to do the soldier's work as well as his own. Thus, for such a practical reason as keeping its economy afloat, Israel yearns for peace. than one text to benefit fully curriculum, it was decided to eliminate the purchase of text- books and institute a new pro- gram. Students will use a complete- ly new library, which is now in the process of being organized and staffed. All texts and re- source material will be placed in the library and students will have the opportunity to select books on subjects assigned for research from the many supple- mentary sources available. Textbooks of special interest will be provided by the library in sufficient quantities so that a teacher could assign a home- work assignment for his class from a single book, which could be taken home for whatever period of time would be neces- sary. It is hoped that as a result of this system the classroom expe- rience will be broader because of the increased number of books being used, and deeper because more materials will be relied upon. SUPERVISORS For the first time in several years, an educator will super- vise and coordinate the activi- ties of each department of the Religion School. The following able and qualified administra- tors will be lending their talents to a revitalized process of reli- gious education: Mrs. Robert Bridge, returning Primary Su- pervisor; Mr. Roger Bass, a long-time teacher in the school, will be the Intermediate Super- visor; and a newcomer to Seat- tle, Mr. Jon Gerard, will be Junior High-Confirmation Super- visor. made Challah, music provided by the group's most talented musicians, and a decor designed especially for the occasion. There will be a program for Primary and Intermediate de- partment students, which will run concurrent to adult worship on the mornings of Rosh Hash- onah and Yom Kippur. The stu- dents will participate in Wor- ship Services geared to their age level as well as enjoy spe- cial programs of music and sto- ry-telling. We urge parents to bring their children for a morn- ing of learning and worship. Egypt Accused On Prisoners TEL AVIV, Sept. (JTA) -- Israel has charged the Egyp- tians have violated the cease- fire provisions dealing with treatment of prisoners of war. In a complaint handed to the United Nations Truce Supervi- sion Organization last night, Israel charged the Egyptians were denying Israeli POW's vis- its by Red Cross representa- tives, preventing the prisoners from sending letters to their re- latives and are preventing the repatriation of the seriously wounded and seriously ill. Israel also charged that the Egyptians have refused to re- turn the body of Israeli pilot Lt. Moshe Goldwasser who died in prison.
