Download PDF for this date

Walworth Barbour, new United States Ambassador to Israel, declared here last night that “the United States of America has not charged its policy toward Israel in the last 13 years.”

Arriving to take up his new post, Mr. Barbour was met at the airport by representatives of Israel’s Foreign Ministry and by members of the U. S. Mission here. He is expected to present his letters of credence to President Izhak Ben-Zvi next week. He succeeds Ogden R. Reid, who resigned.
