The President's first step was to receive a delegation represent¬ ing the Mapal's porty's Knesset membership. The delegation, It was understood, urged the Preai¬ dent to oall on Ben-Gurlon to form a new government Ben-Gurlon, It was reported, was prepared to undertake the assignment that he could sot up nvore or less the same coalition he headed In the last government. However, he was known to face serious difficulties In this, both from his erstwhile partners and from withta his own party. Three of the coaUtlon partners, the Mapam party, the Achdut Avodah and the Progressive par¬ ty, indicated a reluctance to servo again under Ben-Gurlon. They took the position that Ben-Gurion, In his formal letter of resignation.

Oranim Zabar Group Scheduled At Hillel The Oranim Zabar Troupe, Israel's exciting singing group, will appear at the B'nai B'rith Hlllel Foundation Sunday, Feb. 19, 8 p.m. Members of this fresh young troupe are three talented young natives of Israel.

Ben-Gurlon had subsequently apologized tor these statements when members of his Cabinet threatened to resign, and his apology had been accepted by them. A decision to boycott a new Ben-Gurlon government was reached Monday by the Mapam party leadership. Although the decision was subject to formal ratlficaticm by thc party's execu¬ tive committee, the Mapam lead¬ ers began immediate discussions with the Achdut Avodah and the Progressives, urging on them a similar stand. The Mapam leaders were spur¬ red by two developments — the Mapai party move to force Pinhas Lavon's resignation as scretary- scncral ot the Histadrut, thc Isra¬ el Federation of Labor, and the repetition by Ben-Gurlon In his letter of resignation ot the criti¬ cisms he had previously voiced of h's colleagues' position to the Lavon Affair. The National Religious party, another member of the outgoing coalition, was said to be reluctant to enter a new coalition unless it tocluded the moderate Progres¬ sive party. The General Zionist party, which was in the opposi¬ tion, was described as opposed to entering a new government and firm in its demand that new elec¬ tions be held. BEN-GURION AI.SO faced ob¬ stacles in thc ranks of his own party. Foreign Minister (iolda Meir and Minister of Commerce and Industry Pinhas Saplr In¬ dicated that they would not enter a new Ben-Gurion government. Tuesday, Mrs. Meir officially went on two wooks' leave, but was likely to prolong her absence Un¬ til after the formation of a new government. Both she and Mr. Saplr were under strong pressure trom Mapai elements to agree to serve in a new cabinet. Ben-Gurion appeared to be fac¬ ing great difficulties from a grouping of labor veterans and the farm bloc wlthto the Mapai party. They were Impressed by the tact that In the showdown between Ben-Gurion and Lavon In the Mai>al Central Committee last weekend, some 40% of the com¬ mittee supported Lavon, They were described as taking the posi¬ tion that If heads were to roll. Lavon's would not roll alone. One of the demands this bloc was said to be pressing was for the abolition of the post of Depu¬ ty Defense Minister, now held by Shimon Peres, who was Lavon's chief adversary in the bitter fight over culpability for the 1964 se- surity mishap when Lavon was Minister of Defense and Peres, director-general of the Ministry. THE BLOC ALSO sought the removal of Yosef Almogi, the sec¬ retary-general of thc party, on the grounds that his failure to show sufficient flexlblUty had permitted the Lavon issue to de¬ velop Into an open struggle.
