JERUSALEM, (JTA) — An
American Zionist Congress will
be convened next November by
the American Zionist Council,
Rabbi Irving Miller, AZC presi-
dent, told the plenum of the
Jewish Agency executive. He
made the announcement after
a report was given by Mrs. Rose
Halprin on the Jewish Agency's
activities in the field of Zionist
organization in the United
States.
The plenum decided to send
teams to America to engage in
Zionist organizing and propa-
ganda work on the eve of the
American Zionist and World
Zionist congresses. The decision
was taken at the conclusion of
a discussion on the problems of
the American Zionist move-
ment. It stressed that propa-
ganda and organization work

will be the sole task of these
teams, possibly to underscore
the fact that the groups would
not engage in fund-raising ac-
tivities.
T h e executive's resolution
hailed the new program of ac-
tivities of the American Zionist
Council and welcomed the
Council's decision to convene
an American Zionist Congress.
The executive also expressed
support of the idea of forming
a Zionist Council—similar to
that in the United States— in
other American countries.
The plenum also named a
committee of 14 members, in-
cluding seven members of the
executive and seven represen-
tatives of Zionist parties • to
draft the final details of the
agenda for the 25th World
Zionist Congress which will be
held here in December.

U.S. Education Office Includes
Hebrew in National Defense Studies

WASHINGTON, (JTA)—The
United States Office of Educa-
tion made known that modern
Hebrew has been designated
among 18 languages selected as
deserving special attention by a
national conference of Near and
Middle East language experts
conducted by the Modern Lan-
guage Association of America.
Announcement was made that
approximately $1,400,000 of cur-
rent appropriations are being
expended for support of Near
and Middle East language and
area studies under • National
Defense Education Act pro-
grams.
For 1960-61, two centers are
designated to teach modern
Hebrew. They are the universi-
ties of Utah and California. A
center for modern Hebrew sup-
ported by the program exists

at Harvard University. Refer-
ence grammars of both spoken
and modern literary Hebrew
will be prepared, one by Prof.
Haim Blanc of the Hebrew
University in Jerusalem work-
ing under supervision of the
Center for Applied Linguistics
of the Modern Language Asso-
ciation of America, the other
by Prof. Gene Schramm of the
University of California at
Berkeley.
Modern Hebrew was placed
on a par in importance with
such languages as modern
Greek, Turkish, and Pashto, the
Afghan national tongue. A total
of 38 language fellowship
awards in Arabic were made
for the 1960-61 academic year.
Nine similar awards were made
for study of Hebrew, eight for
Persian, and six for Turkish.

Expect World Bank Approval for
Israel Port Development Loan

18963 LIVERNOIS
UN. 1-8184

Israel's loan application en-
visages two principal goals:
port development, and expan-
sion of the phosphate industry.
The World Bank has been asked
by Israel to help finance the
port development scheme,
which is to cost a total of about
$64,000,000, with a loan aggra-
gating between $25,000,000 and
$30,000,000.
Recommending the _establish-
ment of the Port Authority for
Israel, Mr. Tobin said he fore-
sees a division of function be-
tween Israel's three major
ports. Haifa would concentrate
chiefly on handling imports of
iron ore, semi-finished iron and
steel items and other raw ma-
terials, and the export of in-
dustrial products. The new port
of Ashdod, like Haifa also on
the Mediterranean Sea, would
specsialize in the shipping of
Israel's major export item, cit-
rus fruits. The third port, Eilat,
on the Gulf of Aqaba, would
specialize in the shipment of
phosphates and potash obtained
by Israel in the Dead Sea area.

"Perhaps my professional training
is responsible. You see, a doctor
can't be half right—he's got to be
as rare as 'thorough investigation
can make him. Before I opened my
account, I checked all the important
factors. All things considered—high

better place for my money than

NEW YORK, (JTA) — Cre-
ation of a Port Authority for
Israel has been recommended
by Austin J. Tobin, executive
director of the Port of New
York Authority, Tobin revealed
here after returning from
Israel.
Since Tobin went to Israel to
survey the port situation there
at the request of the Interna-
tional Bank for Reconstruction
and Development, financial cir-
cles here today expressed the
belief that the World Bank
would now approve a long-
pending Israeli application for
a multi-million dollar loan.
Eugene R. Black, president
of the World Bank, who was
also in Israel recently, had
hinted that the Israeli loan re-
quest would be granted if the
port authority were found
feasible by Mr. Tobin.
