Download PDF for this date

Dr. Avraham Berman, a leader of the Israel Communist Party, has been refused a visa to the United States, it was learned here today.

The United States Embassy here confirmed that its consular section had rejected Dr. Berman’s application because United States law forbids entry of Communists. Dr. Berman sought the visa to participate in an American Communist party conference in New York.
