Dr. Schwartz Leaves for Israel to Discuss Second Decade of Bond Campaign

The completion of the first decade of State of Israel Bonds will be marked this week when Dr. Joseph J. Schwartz, vice-president of the Israel Bond Organization, meets with Prime Minister Ben-Gurion and Finance Minister Eshkol in Jerusalem to consider Israel’s future economic needs.

Dr. Schwartz left yesterday for Israel to set up the program for the official celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Israel Bond Organization, which will take place at a National Leaders Conference to be held in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv during the period from July 25 through August 3. Following his seven-day stay in Israel, the Israel bond leader will take part in a special dinner tribute in Paris to Baron Edmond de Rothschild, president of the Israel bond campaign in Europe, signaling the opening of the 1961 campaign overseas.
