Sharett Arrives in U.S. Today; Will Spend Month to Aid Bond Drive

Former Prime Minister Moshe Sharett of Israel will arrive at Idlewild Airport tomorrow aboard El Al Israel Airlines for an intensive one month coast-to-coast tour in behalf of the Israel bond drive.

Mr. Sharett, who also served as Israel’s first Foreign Minister, has taken a leading role in the Israel bond drive on previous visits to North America. He was one of the principal speakers at the recent International Mobilization Conference for Israel Bonds in Jerusalem. His tour coincides with peak activities for Israel bonds in leading cities of the United States and Canada.
