ALBANY (JTA)—The Court
of Appeals reserved decision on
an appeal by the Arabian Amer-
ican Oil Company from two
lower court rulings that it has
no right to question job appli-
cants about their religion.
The oil company's appeal was
opposed by the American Jew-
ish CongresS, 'which accused
Aramco of serving as the "tool
and agent"• of Saudi Arabia in
screening Jews from employ-
ment both in Saudi Arabia and
in the United States.
Shad -Polier, chairman of the
AJC Commission on Law and
Social Action, asked the court
to uphold decisions by the State
Supreme Court and the Appel-
late Division calling on' the New
York State Commission Against
Discrimination to probe charges
that Aramco's job practices vio-
late the state Fair Employment
Law..
In a friend-of-the-court brief
presented *at the hearing, the

Montreal Jewry
Acts on Schools

MONTREAL, (JTA)—A spe-
cial committee for reactivation
of the Council of Jewish Educa-
tional. Institutions of Greater
Montreal has been formed here,
as a result of a meeting of the

Beutel. Samuel Harvey, a mem
ber of the executive committee
of the Canadian Jewish. Con-

vot in Greater Montreal.. Among

National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People
supported the American Jewish
Congress position.
Aramco's attorney argued that
the company asks job applicants
to state their religion because
it must comply with a ban on
the entry of Jews into Saudi
Arabia, where Aramco conducts
its operations.
Chester Bordeau, counsel for
Aramco, also said that Ameri-
can political • interests in the
Middle East require that the
company be granted an exemp-
tion from the state anti-discrim-
ination law.
The American' Jewish Con-
gress attorney countered by
charging that Aramco 'uses the
religious. question on its job
application form as a device
for barring Jews not only from
employment in- Saudi Arabia
but also from jobs in its New
York City operation, where the
company has more than 800 em-
ployees.
The Congress spokesman
cited State Department commit-
ments, U. S. Senate resolutions
and other evidence indicating
that "our government opposes
the discriminatory practices of
Saudi Arabia and does not con-
done the importation of those
practices into our own coun-
try."



Israel to Give U.S.
More Information on
2nd Atomic Reactor

JERUSALEM, (JTA)—Avra-
ham Harman, Israeli' Ambassa-
dor to the United States, left
here to return to his post in
Washington, reportedly carry-
ing with him further informa-
tion about Israel's construction
of a new, 24,000-kilowatt nu-
clear reactor.
It is believed that Harman
will present the new informa-
tion to U.S. Secretary of State
Christian A. Herter, with whom
he is expected to have an early
conference.
The Washington Administra-
tion is understood to desire that
Israel agree to some form of
inspection of 'its new atomic
facility, either by the United
States or by the United Nations.
Israel's attitude toward such a
proposal is negative, but it is
uncertain whether Harman has
been instructed to say this
bluntly to Herter.
