U.S. Firm to Build Israel's
First Water Desalination Plant

EILAT, (JTA) — The corner-
stone was laid at this southern
tip of Israel for the country's
first , water desalination plant,
which will consist of four units
each capable of producing
60,000 gallons of sweet water
daily. The plant will be com-
pleted before the end of this
year.
Attending the ceremony. were
President Ben-Zvi; D e v el o p-
ment Minister Mordechai Ben-
ton; David Karr, president of
the Fairbanks Whitney Corpor-
ation of Chicago, which is build-
ing the units; Dr. Alexander
Zarchin of Tel Aviv, Russian-
born inventor of the process,
Frank Barry, United States
Undersecretary of the Interior;
and • Carlton Skinner,. treasurer
of Fairbanks Whitney Corpor-
ation.
Barry, whose presence in-

dicated the interest of the
U. S. Government in the 'pro-
cess, said the . United States
felt that the Zarchin process
might solve irrigation prob-
lems of arid regions in the
United States. Skinner dis-
closed that a contract had
been reached for a Zarchin
plant with 3,000,000 gallons
daily capacity for the United
States Navy.

The plant in Israel is being
established jointly by the Israel
Government and the American
corporation, the Government
holding 60 percent of shares in
the plant, and the corporation,
40 percent. The price of water
produced through the Zarchin
process will initially be just
under $1.00 per thousand gal-
lons, which - compares with
$1.75 per thousand gallons, the
next lowest price by any other
process.
Karr told the gathering that
his company expected' the price
to come down to 40 cents per
thousand gallons within a few
years. The plant will produce
250,000 gallons daily when com-
pleted. Karr also reported that
agreement had been reached on
an arrangement under which

NEW YORK, (JTA) — The
United States postal authorities
have taken steps to prevent fur-
ther mis-routing of airmail copy
addressed to Jerusalem, Israel,
following complaints by the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
airmail addressed to its Jeru-
salem office had been sent to an
Arab country where it had been
subjected to censorship.
The office of the Inspector J.

Charge, in New York, advised
the JTA that its complaint had
been brought to the attention of
the superintendent of the Airport
Mail Facility at Idlewild "for
necessary disciplinary and correc-
tive action."
The postal authorities said
that "since it
