UTA) — A national Sabbath observance bill, which may provoke sharp differ¬ ences of opinion, will be present¬ ed to the Knesset, Prime Minis¬ ter David Ben Gurion has prom¬ ised religious party member of his Cabinet. Justice Minister Pinchas Rosen, whose ministry drafts most bills, is reported to have refused to prepare a Sabbath bill because His Progressive party considers such legislation an infringement of freedom of conscience. Premier Ben Gurion then asked the Ministry of Religious Affairs to prepare the draft. The anticipated struggle, it was slated, hinges on whether the proposed bill will simply legislate a status quo of local option on Sabbath observance, which varies widely from city to city, or seek to require strict observance on a nation-wide compulsory basis. It was predicted that if the bill merely confirms present prac¬ tice, as the Mapai party wishes; the Orthodox elements in the Government will fight It. A nation-wide compulsory measure was considered certain to evoke fierce resistance from Israel's nonrOrthodox majority, possibly causing a flare-up of the smold¬ ering "kulturkampf" between the Orthodox and non-Orthodox Soccessfally treated at the Jewish National Home for Asthmatic Childrea at Denver, Colorado, two Israeli youngsters, Htrsh Tauber, 14, left, and Sammy Sterk, 11, both of Haifa, board El Al'a Constellation In New York for a happy trip home.
