The central committee of the Histadrut, Israel’s Labor Federation, approved today a number of proposals for the annual fund-raising campaign for the Histadrut in the United States.

The proposals had been worked out by a campaign committee and officials of the National Committee for Labor Israel, the United States organization aiding the Histadrut. The proposals were presented to the central committee by Dr. Sol Stein, executive director of the American Histadrut campaign organization. It was agreed, among other things, that the Histadrut would set up in Israel an institute to train campaign leaders for the United States and Canada.

Aharon Becker, secretary-general of the Histadrut, was host at a farewell reception for the American campaign leaders. He cited the “enormous work” of American union leaders David Dubinsky and Abe Potofsky for the Histadrut campaigns. He also mentioned the help given by AFL-CIO vice-president, Walter Reuther, and other labor leaders.
