Gen'l Zionists TEL AVIV (ZINS)--The Gen-. eral Zionists will demand the post of Deputy Prime Minister in a new cabinet without Ben Gurion, and possibly the posts of Development Minister and Vice-Minister of Education. In addition, the General Zionists de mand changes which wi strengthen their influence upon the Israel government's economic policies. "Haaretz," largest Israeli in dependent; daily, says that the General Zionists have not ye formulated their final demands However, it is certain that in ad dition to the post of Deputy Prime Minister, for which. Israe Rpkach or Dr. Peretz Bernstein are being considered, they wil ask for strengthening their position in the Finance Ministry, or broader powers for the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, in order to carry out their economic program. "Haaretz" adds tha Mapai will oppose these demands and will examine the possibility of a smaller coalition without the General Zionists. Ben Gyrion Will Tel Aviv Daily TEL AVIV (ZINS)— "When and why will Ben Gurion rie-turn to the political scene?" asks "Haaretz", independent Israeli daily, in an editorial. And it replies: "Most observers believe that Ben Gurion will return as savior and redeemer after all other leaders will have failed. He believes that the people will finally become diappointed with the coali-, tion government of Mapai and the General Zionists, and then Ben Gurion will return to political . life." : ■ ' . "However, JVlapai will .not be able to place the blame fof its own failures upon its coalition liarther (the General Zionists-ed) at the next elections. Ben Gurion will then reappear to save Mapai from a complete rout—and even If the rescue is at thd expense of other Mapai leaders and their prestige, they will have to rejoice T^:^^^§s^ the great leader will have i^i^M^E them from a tight squeeze ,,r||to deliver the death-blow tp i|ftg5||}eneral Zionists. According tb iaw^l^reasoning, Mapai will re-c;iaiv6 an absolute majority and Gurion will remain as the. ^li^ ruler." SCHARA TZEDECK CHANGES DINNER DATE TO AVOID CONFLia WITH PW BAZAAR The Communify is snvited to paiticipafe in a CHANUKAH INSTITUTE and WORKSHOP in the SCHARA TZEDECK AUDITORIUM WEDNESDAY, NOV. 25/8:30 P.M.

Ladies'Auxiliary , Complying with a request of the Community Council, Congre gation Schaira Tzedeck this week decided to change the date of its membership dinner. The dinner was originally scheduled for No vember 29, which would have brought it into conflict with the Pioneer Women's Bazaar.. It wil now be held on Sunday, Decern ber 13. In announcing the new date Rabbi Goldenberg told the BuUe tin that the change was only made possible as a result of a special effort in rearranging the internal, |affairs of the cohgrega tibh during this period. It was for the congrejgation to make a certaih sacrifice in this connection rather than come into conflict with the community on account of the bazadr. The problem has thus been satisfactorily resdlved after it' was thoroughly discussed at a meet-ing of the executive of the Community Council last week. A suggestion had be^n made that because of conflict with an endorse(fc^:affair. Bulletin publicity be withheld from the Schara, Tzedeck Dinner. ' Mrs. C. Margolis, chairmj^n of the Pioneer Women's Council, told the; Community Council executive that the bazaar had been planned months in advance. She expressed the view that it would be adversely affected by the holding of the Schara Tzedeck dinner on the same date because many Pioneer Women and Labor Zionist members are also affiliated with the Schara Tzedeck. The inajority of executive members present agreed that the Schara Tzedeck dinner was a membership function and technically therefore, it did not require epdorsation. Arthur Fouks expressed the view that the Congregation was egally entitled to hold its affair on a date for which an affair by another organization had been endorsed. However it was mdral-y wrong in doing this, he added, knowing that a conflict would be created. Rabbi Bernard Goldenberg, who apeared at the meeting in behalf of Schara Tzedeck, undertook to ake back to the congregation the opinion of the Council. He insisted however on the right of he congregation to space in the Bulletin for a legitimate undertaking. The executive was polled on he question of Bulletin publicity m this case and voted five to four n favor of granting such publicity even if the Schara Tzedeck dinner were held, on the same djate as the endorsed Pioneer Women's Bazaar. With* the announcement of the new date for the Schara Tzedeck Dinner, the Community Council may derive satisfaction that its conciliation efforts have been successful in this case. Canvass For Home For Aged Next Sunday, Nov. 22 Those closely associated with the Jewish Home for the aged were enthusiastic in their support Vof i the annual,; campaign launched last Saturday evening. The joint meeting and social eye-ning was well attended though the general community was noticeably absent.

An appeal is being made for community wide support in this worthy project. ■ Anyone who can possibly give some time to it is urged to participate and'attend the breakfast meeting. Germany Mediator Of Israel-Arab Peoce? PARIS (ZINS)—Dr. Von, Bren-tano, Chairman of the Christian-Democratic Party (Dr. Adenauer's Party) in the West-German Parliament, made a statement to an Israeli newspaperman that Germany is prepared to act "as mediator between Israel and the Arab countries in the hope that she will be more successful" than the United States and England. Von Brentano recalled the fact that Germany was successful in overriding Arab protests against reparations to Israel and felt that the German government would have sufficient influence to convince the Arabs on a round table discussion with Israel.
