Two high-ranking officials of the Roman Catholic Church visited Israel Expo-69 here and toured the $2 million Israeli trade and industrial fair accompanied by its director Eli Dayan. The Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Antonio Cardinal Caggiano, and Bishop Ernesto Segura were especially interested in a display of Jewish and Christian religious ritual items from Israel. Mr. Dayan presented the Cardinal with a medal coined on the occasion of the visit of Pope Paul VI to the Holy Land in 1964 and a Torah scroll.
