Rep. Roosevelt Leaves Israel for Beirut Conference

Progress in Israel has been “enormous” in the 18 months between the last and current visit of Rep. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr., to the Jewish state, he told a Histadrut dinner in his honor here prior to his leaving for Beirut yesterday to confer with U.N. truce supervisor Lt. Gen. William E. Riley on the Arab refugee problem. Rep. Rossevelt singled out the leadership of the Histadrut for special praise in his tribute to the Jewish state and its institutions.
