Prime Minister will have a
a meeting with Maurice Couve

meetings will be given. One will
be by the Israel EMbassy here
for a score of French officials
and other leaders. Another will
be provided by the Association

to bring together 150 leaders of
every political group in France

third will be a luncheon of the
Diplomatic Press Association,
at which Ben-Gurion will an-
swer questions of the French
press about Israel's policies, at-
titudes and objectives on the in-
ternational scene.
There will be a visit to
UNESCO headquarters where
Ben-Gurion will be greeted by
