Ben Gurion Will Not Surrender Post of Defense Minister Until Knesset Passes Army Bill

Premier David Ben Gurion will not relinquish his post as Defense Minister until after the Knesset passes the proposed military service bill and it is implemented, it was reported here today by the Hebrew daily Davar. The Mapai paper estimates that changes in the composition of the Israeli Cabinet will not take place for another three or four months.
