The first delegation of Israel Boy Scouts to visit the U.S. arrived here today for a three-day visit to the Capital. They were received by Vice President Nixon.

The nine-man delegation is touring various Scout camps in the U.S. prior to a visit to Canada, where they will participate in the eighth World Scout Jamboree, to be held in Ontario. Israel is the youngest member state within the International Bureau of Boy Scouts, and this will be the first time it will be represented at a World Jamboree. Two members of the Scout delegation are Israel Arabs, representing respectively the Israel Catholic Scout Association and the Israel Arab Scout Association.
