Download PDF for this date

Israeli Premier Menachem Begin has invited President and Mrs. Carter and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat to attend the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra’s opening concert at the Kennedy Center in Washington tomorrow night. The orchestra will be conducted by Zubin Mehta. Leonard Bernstein will conduct the orchestra’s second performance at the center on Saturday night. There was no immediate indication whether the Carters or Sadat have accepted the invitation. Sadat’s wife, Jihan, is not at Camp David. (By Joseph Polakoff)
