Generation of '48 Proves Too Racy for Israeli Stamps

Why does the Philatelic Service fear photos of women in shorts?

Yehudit Ayalon, one of Kibbutz Ma'agan Michael's founders, was very happy to receive a request several weeks ago from the postal service's Philatelic Service. She was informed that soon a new stamp would be issued to honor "100 years of industry in Israel" and was asked whether she might have old photographs from the Ayalon Institute, where she worked when she was young.
