Plan to Aid Israel

Camp Tamarack Weekend Outing on Cancer Causation
WASHINGTON, (JTA) —
American investors would be
encouraged to make invest-
ments in Israel under a new
concept which gained impetus
when the U.S. Treasury Depart-
ment said it would support a
Congressional move to provide
tax relief for American busi-
nessmen specifically to encour-
age investment in the Middle
East and other underdeveloped
The Treasury Department's
position was outlined in a re-
port to the House Ways and
Means Committee, which origi-
nates all tax legislation. The
Treasury Department said it
would favor use of tax incen-
tives "to promote flow of U.S.
capital into the less developed
regions of the free world." The
Middle East was specially men-
tioned, and it was clear that
Israel was included.
The moves that the Treasury
Department would support in-
cluded deferral of tax on in-
come derived by a business cor-
poration which obtains sub-
stantially all of its income from
investments in one or more of
the less developed areas of the
world; ordinary loss treatment
for losses incurred by original
investors on stock of such cor-
porations; and early imple-
mentation of principle of tax
sparing in order to make it
possible for American firms
inv esting in underdeveloped
countries to benefit from tax
inducements offered by such a
country to attract new capital.
Representatives of the graduating classes of the seven
branches of the United Hebrew Schools meet with faculty
advisor, Rabbi EMANUEL APPLEBAUM, to plan a three-day
camping program this weekend at Camp Tamarack. Plays, skits,
discussions, Israeli singing and dancing will be combined with
recreational and supplementary educational activities, with the
central theme being "Torah." Shown here, left to right, stand-
