Download PDF for this date

The first key to the town of Elath was presented with fanfare today to Mayor Donald J. Connally of Trenton, New Jersey, who toured the southern port city as a guest of the Israel bond drive.

Back in Tel Aviv, Mayor Connally, who brought with him pledges from the Jewish community of Trenton for the purchase of $250,000 in bonds, said he was greatly impressed by his tour of Israel’s cities and major towns. He compared Haifa to Trenton as a port city and an industrial center.
