Haig Visits Cairo And Jerusalem Seeking Autonomy Breakthrough JERUSALEM (WNS)- Israeli officials displayed no real optimism that U.S. Secretary of State Alexander Haig's visit here Jan. 14 and his visit to Egypt for two days before led to a substantial breakthrough in the Jim Million and Dee Mason Adult Children, Aging Parents To Be Examined January 31 Adult children and their aging parents will be able to attend special programs sponsored by three major Jewish communal agencies, Jewish Family Service, Heritage Towers and the Jewish Center. The first program will be "Two Sides of the Coin" and will be held on Sunday, Jan. 31 at Heritage - Tower. The focus of that day's program will be on assisting adult children and their aging parents to better understand the pleasures, conflicts and dilemmas inherent in their present and future relations. The shifting of family roles will be dramatized through an approach developed by the Institute for Human Awareness. Jim Million and Dee Mason from the Institute will lead the first half of the program. Million has a background steeped in the arts and human services. He graduated from Otterbein College majoring - in music and theater, toured with U.S.O. troupes in Europe and participated in various professional productions. He was, in addition, the former director of The Bridge Counseling Center and Assistant to the Director of the Family Counseling arid Crittenton Services. Dee Mason has an extensive drama background, was a member of the Columbus Metropolitan Ballet, and graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design. She also possesses extensive human service experience, having worked at a maximum security institution for delinquent girls and St. Ann's Hospital psychiatric unit. Both Mason and Million previously combined their efforts at the Franklin County Mental Health Board to provide training and educational programs to agencies affiliated with the Board. The fee for the program is $2 for persons under 62 and there is no fee for people 62 years old and over. The program will begin at 11:30 a.m. with a Bagel Bar at l p.m., followed by small discussion groups until 2:30 p.m. Pre-registration is required by Jan. 25. Questions about the program and reservations can be made by calling any of the three sponsoring agencies, Jewish Family Service; 231-1890; Heritage Towers, 237-2521; the Jewish Center, 231-2731. This community service program has been made possible in part through a grant from the Columbus Jewish Federation Endowment Fund. autonomy negotiations with Egypt which have been dragging on for the last 32 months. But sources here indicated that Israel's position has softened slightly on some outstanding autonomy issues and that this was reflected in the proposals offered by Haig. Israel asserts that substantive concessions must come from Egypt on such issues as the powers of self governing authority and the right of East Jerusalem Arabs to participate in the autonomy elections, There is also rising concern that the Egyptians will try to forestall the autonomy talks until after the return of the Sinai in order to press Israel 'for further concessions and that Israel's bargaining position will be weaker. That view seemed to be borne out by Egyptian Foreign Minister Kammal Hassan Ali's remarks greet: ing Haig oh his arrival in Cairo Jan. 12. "Egypt, on its part, will spare no effort to keep the talks going until' they bring their desired results, either before or after the complete Israeli withdrawal from Sinai, taking into account trie current practical considerations," Hassan Ali said. He said Egypt's aim remains "to achieve a real full autonomy for the Palestinians." ; Haig said in Cairo and in Jerusalem that the U.S: was setting no deadline. He told Israeli Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir that his visit to Israel and Egypt was "primarily to focus on the peace process, especially the autonomy talks." The Secre: tary of State told reporters, on his arrival at Ben Gurion Airport, that the working teams of Israel, Egypt and the U.S. had made "important progress" until now and that President Reagan has "concluded the time has come to see whether or hot it is possible to bring about" a0 breakthrough. Observers in and outside the Israeli government said, however, that the primaryN purpose of Haig's trip was to revive the autonomy talks in order to prevent any new "surprises" by Israel, such as its annexation of the Golan Heights Dec. 14. In addition, the observers said, Haig wants to reengage the parties in the autonomy negotiations to ensure that the Camp David process will retain its momentum after all of Sinai is returned to Egypt. In that way, the challenges posed to =Camp David by the Saudi Arabian plan and the European Mideast initiative can be warded off. Those challenges are expected to be pressed anew after Israel's withdrawal is completed. Israeli observers believe Washington's most serious concern now is the possibility of Israeli military action either against the Palestine Liberation Organization in south Lebanon, against the Syrian anti-aircraft missiles in eastern Lebanon—or against both. The Golan annexation, coming unexpectedly and without prior consultation with the V.S., has led the Reagan Administration to a wary watchfulness.''' '-• , ■ Local Community Raises $2.9 Million In 1981 For Israel Bond Organization The Israel Bond Organization produced a total of $432,958,900 in cash in 1981 for Israel's economic development, marking the seventh consecutive year in which its cash receipts have shown an increase over the previous year, it was announced by Sam Rothberg, General Chairman. The $432,958,900 in cash received in the year ending Dec. 31,1981, was the largest amount in the 30-year history of the Bond Organization with the exception of the year of the Yom Kippur War (1973), he said. Last year's receipts brought to more than $5.5 billion the funds channeled by Israel Bonds into Israel's Development Budget since 1951. Of this total more than $2.7 billion has been repaid by the State of Israel. In 1980 the Israel' Bond Organization's sales amounted to $421,961,000. Rothberg pointed out that the record results of 1981 were achieved "despite the unusually high interest rates and the unfavorable economic conditions which prevailed in the United States and other free world countries where Bonds are sold." A new responsibility assumed by the Israel Bond Organization in 1981 was the inauguration of a special effort to provide the seed money for the construction of a Canal linking the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea for the purpose of producing hydroelectric power, which would help solve Israel's energy problems and reduce its dependence on imported oil. Howard Schoenbaum and Frank Nutis announced that the Columbus area raised 2.9 million dollars in Israel Bonds for 1981. This total represents a substantial increase in bond sales due in large part to the dinner which honored Herbert H. Schiff, High Holy Day appeals and a successful Women's Division campaign.
