Arabs Lift Ban on Four U.S. Ships; Owners Promise Not to Trade with Israel

Four American ships will be removed from the Jordanian Government blacklist because their owners reportedly presented guarantees against resuming trade with Israel, it was reported here today from Amman. The ships are the Exchester, the Exporter, the Exbrook and the Montego Sea. At the same time, the American ship Lipscombe Lykes has been added to the blacklist, the report stated.

(The Exchester, Exporter and Exbrook are part of the merchant fleet belonging to the American Export Lines, Inc., with headquarters in New York. A spokesman for the company told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency there was no immediate comment on the report.)
