Download PDF for this date

A plant for the assembly or Philco refrigerators was dedicated here today. Known as “Amcor,” the new plant will turn out 1,000 refrigerators monthly. Capitalized at 200,000 pounds (about $560,000), the plant already has orders for 250 refrigerators from Turkey.

A delegation representing the Philippine Government and the Philippine Airlines arrived in Israel last night to discuss an air agreement between Israel and the Philippines.
