Passover Supplies Plentiful, Israelis Told by Government

Despite international tensions, the stoppage of American aid, the fuel shortage and other difficulties that have beset Israel since last autumn’s Sinai action, Israel will celebrate Passover with a plentitude of holiday supplies, the Ministry of Commerce announced today. White sugar–banned recently for general consumption–will be distributed for Passover, in addition to regular rations of brown sugar.
