Download PDF for this date

Henry Montor, chief executive officer of the Israel Bond Organization, left here today for Israel where he will confer with Premier Moshe Sharett on the launching of the second bond sales campaign in the United States. The new issue, for $75,000,000, will be launched officially at the National Planning Conference for Israel in Washington March 26-28.

In a statement prior to his departure, Mr. Montor said that during his discussions with Premier Sharett he hoped “to exchange views on how best to achieve the transition in Israel Bonds from a temporary campaign to the status of a permanent and continuing Jewish community responsibility in the United States.”

It is expected that Mr. Montor will also discuss with Mr. Sharett plans for extending bond sales to Latin American countries, Europe and elsewhere.
