Ezra Katz, staff member of the Yiddish paper, Di Presse, and one of its founders, died here Friday at the age of 72. Born in the Ukraine, he came to Argentina as a child. For more than 50 years he was a member of the administrative staff of Di Presse and one of its directors.

A 15-year-old Arab boy from a refugee camp in Gaza Strip was admitted to a hospital today suspected of having cholera. It was the first such case in Israel-held territory since an outbreak was reported in Syria two weeks ago.
