After spending four months in the United States during which he addressed many meetings on behalf of the Israel Bond Organization in more than 40 communities, George Flesch, leading member of the Israel Parliament, returned to Israel today. He was instrumental in stimulating a high level campaign for the sale of Israel bonds in numerous cities in this country and Canada.

During his stay in this country, Mr. Flesch also met with leaders of the United States Congress and Administration, and with high officials of the State Department in Washington, to discuss, among other topics, the situation in the Middle East, with special reference to Arab-Israel relations. Mr. Flesch also met with the chairmen of the National Committees of the Democratic and Republican parties.
