Myer Feldman, Deputy Special Counsel to President Lyndon B. Johnson, this weekend paid a courtesy call on Prime Minister Levi Eshkol. Mr. Feldman, who is here on a week’s visit as a guest of the Weizmann Institute of Science, will meet with the Prime Minister tomorrow to finalize the details of Mr. Eshkol’s visit to the United States in June, at the invitation of President Johnson.

Premier Eshkol’s visit to the United States, which is scheduled to last 10 days will include two days of talks with President Johnson and other U. S. officials as well as visits to Cape Kennedy and other points of interest. Besides New York, Mr. Eshkol will also visit the West Coast where he will meet with Jewish communal leaders.

During this weekend, Mr. Feldman visited former Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion at his home in Sde Boker in the Negev and toured Eilat, Israeli’s southernmost port.
