Download PDF for this date

Four United States Congressmen, members of an International Operations subcommittee of the House, arrived today to study implementation of the United States aid program. The group, headed by acting chairman John Monagan. Connecticut Democrat, also visited Spain and Turkey. The Congressmen are scheduled to return to the United States Sunday.

In another phase of the American aid program, Ogden Reid, the American Ambassador to Israel, unveiled plaques in Hebrew and English last night paying tribute to the generosity of the American people.

The unveiling took place at the gate of the James de Rothschild Youth and Community Center on Mount Carmel. The Center and a garden near it were financed with the help of 250, 000 Israel pounds contributed by the United States under a special cultural program.
