Israel Bond Campaign for 1955 to Start in January, Venezky Says

The 1955 campaign for State of Israel Development Bonds will be inaugurated in January, it was announced today by Julian B. Venezky, chairman of the executive committee of the Israel Bond Organization, as he arrived from Israel.

Mr. Venezky returned from Israel where, together with Henry Montor, chief executive officer of the Israel bond drive, and Sidney Green, financial adviser, he conferred with Premier Moshe Sharett, Finance Minister Levi Eshkol and other leaders of the Government of Israel concerning the plans for Israel bond campaigns for next year in the United States and other parts of the free world.

In describing his discussions with Israel’s leaders, Mr. Venezky said: “Although they are disturbed by the adoption of policies which provide for arms to the Arab states which have increased their pressure on Israel, the people of Israel stand firm in their friendship for the American people.”
