A three-day National Economic Conference for Israel Bonds will open here tomorrow to launch the fall phase of the 1959 Israel Bond campaign which seeks $75, 000, 000 in sales by the end of the year.

More than 800 communal leaders will attend the conference at which key speakers will be Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel’s Foreign Minister; Levi Eshkol, Minister of Finance; Dr. Abba Hillel Silver, chairman of the board of Governors of the Israel Bond Organization; Abraham Feinberg, president of the Israel Bond Organization; and Dr. Joseph J. Schwartz, vice president of the organization.

(An intensive, three-month campaign in New York City to raise $4, 000,000 in Israel bond investment funds will be formally launched at a dinner sponsored by the Israel Bond Organization on Wednesday evening, September 30 in the Waldorld Astoria Hotel. The dinner will honor Ira Guilden, National Campaign chairman of State of Israel bonds.)
