Eshkol Visit to Johnson Moved Up to January; Place Not Yet Determined

Prime Minister Levi Eshkol’s visit to the United States, to confer with President Johnson, has been moved up by a month, and will take place in January, instead of February, as previously scheduled, it was announced here today. The announcement said the earlier date was set at the request of the White House, because of changes in the time-table of the U.S. Congress.

Mr. Eshkol is due to leave Israel January 5, and will arrive at New York’s International Airport that day. He will stay in New York overnight, and will confer with President Johnson during the next two or three days. The place for the conference, it was indicated, has not yet been determined–it will be either in Washington or in Texas.
