Signs of farther strengthening of the bonds of friendship between France and Israel were disclosed here by two announcements dealing with the cultural relations between the two nations.

The Foreign Ministry reported that it plans to send 3,000 volumes of French classics to Israel schools that teach French, to serve as a nucleus for French-language libraries in Israel institutions of learning. At the same time, it was revealed that Jean Cassou, director of the Paris Museum of Modern Art, will visit Israel later this month to give a series of lectures on “Fifty Years of French Art.”
