Menachem Beigin, Former Irgun Commander, Arrives in U.s., in Country on Visitor’s Visa

Menachem Beigin, former commander-in-chief of the Irgun Zvai Leumi and at present leader of the Irgun-sponsored Freedom Movement in Israel, arrived here today. (In Washington, a state Department spokesman said that neither the British Government nor anyone else had objected to the American Government’s granting Beigin a vise. The Israeli visitor, for whose capture the former Mandatory Power in Palestine offered $40,000, is in this country on a visitor’s visa.)
