(Airmail pos- tage to Bermuda from Canada is 15 cents per half-ounce) TEL AVIV The Dead Sea region of Israel, once difficult of access can now be easily reached from Tel Aviv or Jer- usalem over a newly completed highway. The highway is the middle link in a north-south road that runs from Melulla to Eilat. Prior to completion of the road, the driver reached the southern end of the Dead Sea by circling through Bethlehem and Hebron. Now, by heading east from Jerusalem down to- ward Jericho, and turning south on to tbe new highway jvfst be- fore the Ein Fashkha Oasis, the driver can IK in Ein Gedi in the southern part of the Dead Sea in little more than an hour's time. Part of the road runs along the foot of the Judean Moun- tains; other sections rise and climb along cliffs with mag- nificent views of the sea. Off in the distance, on the eastern shore, are the Moab Mountains. Parts of the road, especially at the beginning of it near the Ein Fashkha Oasis, pass reed, acacia and bamboo groves. The new highway taps an area of Israel rich in history. At the beginning of the road are the Qumran Caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. At Ein Gedi. there is a rare combination of three fresh- water springs which unite in a high waterfall. At the foot of the fall is a basin for swim-1 ming. This oasis, one of the loveliest in Israel, is mention- ed in the Bible as the place, where David hid from King j Saul. About 15 minutes drive from I Ein Gedi is the fortress of Masada where the Jews held out for three years against the Romans. A recent- ly installed cable car allows visitors to ascend the mount in three minutes. Opposite Masada on the ,lor- danian side of the Deed Sea, a promontory juts out into the water forming a strait. This strip of water, called the Straits of Lynch, is named after a U.S. naval lieutenant, W. F. Lynch, who led an expedition to the area in 1847. At one time, the Dead Sea probably did not ex- tend past this point. Due to an earthquake, perhaps the cause of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, this area, referred to in the Bible as the Vale of Siddim. was filled with water. At Ein Bokek and Hamei Zo- har, a few miles south of Mas- ada, are facilities for those who wish to take advantage of the medicinal properties of the Dead Sea's waters. To cater to the influx of visitors there are two hotels, a campsite and a youth hostel. Another hotel is nearing completion and two more are in the planning stage. By 1975, there will be rooms available. Also nearing completion this year is a new health establishment at Hamei Zohar. Further along the road from Hamei Zohar lies Sodom, the city that Lot fled, now the site of the Dead Sea Works, engaged obtaining potash, bromine, industrial salt, table salt and magnesium chloride from the Dead Sea. The Dead .Sea's rich- ness in salts is responsible for one of the many names the sea has had lliroughout history the Salt Sea. Other names reflecting a particular aspect of the sea have been the Bast Sea, Sea of Lot and Lake Asph- altites for its asphalt content. Six London hits offered on tour Shakespeare at Old Vic, op- era or ballet at Covent Garden, a musical, drama or comedy al any ol London's famous West End theatres.
