Download PDF for this date

School children carrying bouquets of flowers and a youth orchestra welcomed 400 American members of a United Jewish Appeal special study mission when they arrived at Lod Airport yesterday. The group, which filled three planes, will join 150 other delegates already in Israel in a first-hand study of immigrant needs and problems in the aftermath of the Six-Day War.
