THE SANDUSKY REOISTEBSTARNEWS Thursday, npc^nibcr I,"I, 1SS5 Mrs. America Says Israeli Just Go On With Daily Taisks Mrs. Ramona Deitcmeyer of Lincoln, Neb., mother of five children, who wns selected as "Mrs. America" of 19^6 at Ellinor Village, Fla. after a nationwide contest, is touring Europe and the iVlid- dJe East, comparing notes with homemakors aliroad. Here is her story of hop \isit to Israel. B.v PAMONA DEITEMEYKR Written Expressly for INS JERUSALEM, Dec. 15— There .seems to be more fear In America and Europe that an Aral)-Israeli war miRht I break out than riffht here In I the backyard of the frontier I skirmishes. I visited a woman dressed in j tatters wiiose dilapidated house I shakily stands at the boundary line belwcen Jordan and Israel with barbed wire strung all i around her cluttered backyard. I She is actually the last rcsi- I dent of l .srael you can see beforci i you cross through the Mandle-; I baum Ciate, which Joins old I.Ferusalem, under Arab rule, witli i the Isi-acI go\criunent's ncu IJeriisalcni. I also had tea at (he ('|o;:;anlh- 'furnished suburban home of Mrs. Hanna Hcrlsoc;, wife of the chief rabhi of Isr.'iel, with such prominent Isr .'H 'lian wo'uen as Mrs. Paula Hon-fturion, wife of the l)riine minister; Mrs. (tcorgcs ,'\gif)ii, wife of the f.ord Mayor of .lerusalem; and Mrs Myriam Ma/or. wife of the minister of education, amoii!' otheis. And in lui instance wa-^ there an.\- mention of wai-. The Israelis just so about their daily tasks, with shop keepers now getting ready for fhaniikab, the feast of lights, eorrespondioR with the ("hristian's Cliri 'nas, ,\nd tliey can't seem to un- derst-vid why there i.s so much excitement aliroad about some border clashes wfiieli have l)een Koinp on in one form t>r another ever since tlic IN arniistifc «as signed. Wliile it was a.stoundiiig to me, it didu'l seem uimsual to ^9- year-old Rach(>l Mishale to hang lier wash on the liai'lied wires separ.il ill'.' Ii"r I okeii down brick lunro ;il 1(1 Reliov Saniuoll 1 l;in ;i \'ie. IMHIWM Samuel tlu'; ProphiM Slicel. Iinni the "no man's land" partition between .Fordan and Israel. She has nine children, ranging in age from 2 years to 21, seven of whom live with her and her printer husband, Abraham, In a bombcd-oiit homo on the border merly occupied by Arabs, for which they pay the Israelian enemy property commission, five pounds a month, or approximately $2..'in. The Mishales came to Israel 4'/i years ago from Morocco and are very religloas .Tews. Their oldest boy is a sergeant major in the army and another son lives in a kibbutz, or collective settlement. Mr. Mishale doesn't work steady and when he does he earas around $60 a month gross, with about one-third taken off for social security, taxes, etc. They are of course very, very poor by whatever standard you use, as arc a great many others who have come to Israel from /\sia, Africa and the East since 1948. The Israelis don't refer to these people as "immigrants" or "refuRces" but rather as "newcomers." While there \n still some food rationing In Israel it is not too stringent. Housewives arc permitted to buy one-quarter pound of meat per person each week although they can have all the chicken and turkey they desire Sugar is rationed to two pounds a month and coffee or tea at one quarter pound a month. Food prices are not too high. In keeping with income, ynd are controlled by the government. Servants charge around iSO a month and baby sitters receive 2^ cents an hour. Unlike what I found in man,? European citiea where the men feel It Is helow their diirnity to help the women around the house, here In Israel Just the opposite Is the case. Hebrew fathers are proud of their family life, and with chests held high, push baby carriages on the streets and in the parks and help with the dishes and even with washing and hanging the clothes on the line.
