NEW YORK (Sep. 30)
Harold J. Goldenberg, one of the speakers at the National Economic Conference for Israel in Washington, today issued a statement to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency denying that in his speech he took issue with Mr. Morgenthau over the latter’s remark on the Histadrut.
“I was called upon to report on general investment activities in the country, “Mr. Goldenberg said. “In the course of my address, I referred to the work being dene by Histadrut organizations. I made no comment on, and intended no criticism of, the passing reference to Histadrut made the night before by Mr. Henry Morgenthau, Jr. I believe Mr. Morgenthau has rendered sufficient service to both Israel and the Jewish community generally to be able to express himself freely on any subject. “
