U.S. -israel Desalination Project Hailed by Stuart Udall

Secretary of the Interior Stuart Udall today welcomed the activities here of a joint American-Israel desalination team, and stressed the importance America attaches to the project.

Mr. Udall said that any necessary help would be granted. Today Israel Ambassador Avraham Harman tendered a luncheon for the experts. Among those in attendance were Prof. Glenn Seaborg, chairman of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission, and Myer Feldman, president Johnson’s personal adviser on Israeli affairs.
