Warn Against Irresponsible State Dept. Backs Israel to Get Enriched Uranium
Solicitations for Advertising Loan by World for Atom Retractor from the U. S.

As in previous years, on the eve of Rosh Hashanah,
irresponsible solicitations are being made here for ad-
vertisino- in behalf of periodicals and newspapers that
have absolutely
no circulation in Michigan.
In our repeated warning to advertisers to be on
guard against such misrepresentations, we call attention
primarily to the solicitations by a Chicago Yiddish paper
that appears only four or five times a year and has a
very limited circulation, of only a few hundred, in
Chicago alone.
Solicitations also are being made for a periodical
representing a national organization. Its circulation
numbers possibly 200 in Detroit, Its leaders have been
warned against clipping advertisements from The Jewish
News and using them as if they had appeared originally
in that periodical's columns.
We call these facts to the attention of the Detroit
community, so that advertisers may not be misled by
irresponsible solicitors.

Bank for Egypt

—World Bank sources indicated
the State Department has, so
far. not indicated any opposi-
tion to the granting of a large
loan by the Bank to the United
Arab Republic, for the expan-
sion of the Suez Canal. The
Bank is aware of Israel's com-
plaints against Egypt's viola-
tions of international transit
rights through the Canal by
keeping the waterway closed
to Israeli shipping.
World Bank sources here said
the political question of Israeli
transit was a matter that in-
volved the State Department
more than the Bank. These
sources said the Department
apparently decided that the
question of the loan to the
UAR, and the Israeli complaint,
were not necessarily linked.
World Bank executive Joseph
Recinsky arrived in Cairo with
instructions from Washington
to discuss aid that would en-
able President Nasser to expand
the Suez Canal into two-way
thoroughfare. (Recinsky stated
on arrival in Cairo that the
Bank'stechnical experts have re-
ported the project is practicable,
and that there is no obstacle
to financing the work. Recinsky
will meet with UAR Economic
Minister Abdel Monein Kais-
souni several times this month.)
The Bank's final decision will
await Kaissouni's visit to Wash-
ington next month. He will
then submit a formal applica-
tion. Meanwhile, the U.S. Ex-
port-Import Bank announced
this week-end a $12,000,000 loan
to the UAR to buy 58 late-model
Diesel locomotives in the
United States. The agency said
the loan would be repayable
over a five-year period begin-
ning in November, 1960.

rael will receive enriched uran-
ium of a quality that is almost
entirely fissionable.
Yaacov Herzog, Israeli Charge
d'Affaires, and G. Louis Jones,
Assistant Secretary of State'for
Near Eastern Affairs, signed
the agreement which provides
that Israel will get a quantity of
90 percent enriched uranium
for use in a research reactor
now nearing completion in
The agreement amends a 1955
accord under President Eisen-
hower's Atoms-for-Peace pro-
gram under which Israel re-
ceived uranium U-238 enriched
with 20 percent U-235. The up-

While most people think
"Love your neighbor as your-
self" comes from the New Tes-
tament, it first appears in the
Old Testament.
