Download PDF for this date

Former Premier David Ben-Gurion will begin his forthcoming visit to the United States on March 4 and spend about ten days there. He will address five large public meetings in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Miami. He also will attend a B’nai B’rith conference in Washington.

The trip is being made under auspices of the United Jewish Appeal but Mr. Ben-Gurion also will deal with plans for the development of Israel’s Negev during his visit.
