Leonard Hall, former Republican National Chairman, will soon be named the official American representative to Israel’s tenth anniversary celebrations this spring, it was reported today by the New York Herald-Tribune. Mr. Hall will be named by President Eisenhower, the report said.

The same report stated that Mr. Hall would return from his Israel trip bringing Premier David Ben Gurion to this country. Also that Mr. Hall would make some appearances with Mr. Ben Gurion in the United States. (In Jerusalem today, the Premier’s Office disclaimed any knowledge that Mr. Ben Gurion had been invited to pay an official visit to Washington.)
