U.J.A. Delegation Received by Jerusalem’s Mayor; to Visit Haifa, Tiberias, Nathanya

The forty-seven member United Jewish Appeal delegation now touring Israel investigating conditions in the country was today received by Jerusalem Mayor Daniel Auster. Mayor Auster told the delegates that not a single Jerusalem will ever agree to the internationalization of Jerusalem. He blamed the city’s unclarified political status for its present economic difficulties.

Yesterday, the delegates were received by Dr. Israel Goldstein, Jewish Agency treasurer. They will visit Haifa, Tiberias end Nathanya this week and will leave next weekend for Casablanca where they will inspect J.D.C. camps in French Morocco.
