WASHINGTON (JTA) — Pur-
suing the need for withholding
U.S. aid from Arab nations that
practice bias against Americans,
Rep. Seymour Halpern, New
York Republican, said in a House
speech that an analogy existed
between new Communist restric-
tions on free movement of Ger-
mans in the Berlin area and "the
arbitrary barring of United
States citizens, on a basis of re-
ligion, by Arab recipients of our
assistance." -
Halpern charged the State De-
partment with "failing to do all
it can to implement the anti-bias
and freedom of the seas clauses
that are part of the various for-
eign assistance acts." He pointed
out that the State. Department
did not hesitate to ask Congress
to vote funds far the Arabs but
paid no heed to the will of Con-
gress in failing to implement
anti-bias measures.
Rep. Alfred Santangelo, New
York Democrat, told the House
that "in view of the large
amounts of money" recommend-
ed in the new bill "for the Arab
nations, which (recommenda-
tions) I have seen in the classi-
fied documents, I think it be-
hooves the Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee in the light of these dis-
criminatory practices against the
Jewish people, and against Amer-
ican citizens of the Jewish faith,
that the Committee should re-
evaluate the contribution that
this foreign aid program is giving
to Jordan, the United Arab Re-
public, and other countries in
that area."

Rep. Santangelo also asked
Attorney General Robert
Kennedy and the State De-
partment to rule whether
Federal , authorities, ' under
existing'interstate and tOr-
,Ogn. commerce statutes and
Government anti-bias laWs,
could delete from invitations
to submit bids those firms
that discriminate against the
right of free commerce with
Israel.

Rep. Santangelo pointed out
that the Government in effect
"permits companies producing
goods in America to deny these
American-made products to our
friend and ally, Israel." He
charged that the Department
of Defense, with hundreds of
bases in • the United States and
around the world, does btsiness
with companies that practice a
discriminatory selling policy.
"Other federal agencies with-
in the Department of Justice
itself, the Federal institutions
within the Bureau of Prisons,
hospitals under the Veterans
Administration, the Department
of Health, Education and Wel-
fare permit products of these
prejudiced companies to be

legislation should be forthcom-

"Our action should set a
standard of morality for busi-
nessmen who seem to be more
Interested in the crass dollar
than in maintaining friendship
of democratic nations," the
Congressman said. He explained
that this stand was an out-
growth of complaints charging
that Brown & Williamson To-
bacco Corp. of Louisville, Ky.,
and the British-American To-
bacco Co., Ltd. "are involved
in intricate international tactics
which ban major cigarette
brand shipments to Israel in
order to hold the Arab market."

"The rigid Arab boycott
which has -barred some major
American brand cigarettes
from shipment to Israel since
1956 is near the breaking
point," according to Congress-
man Santangelo, who is a
candidate for the Democratic
Party nomination for Man-
hattan Borough President.

Cong. Santangelo disclosed
that he has held what he hopes
may prove to be "productive
Washington conferences" with
A. Y. Yeaman, vice president
of the Brown & Williamson
Tobacco Corp., Louisville. The
Congressman believes that "the
ban on major brands cigarettes
to Israel manufactured by
Brown & Williamson may be
lifted real soon."
Cong. Santangelo said "the
threatened boycott declaration
against Brown & Williamson
cigarettes 'Raleigh' and 'Vice-
roy' and other less popular
brands will be held in abeyance
by the Federation of the Italian-
American Democratic Organiza
tions _of the State of New Yor
Inc., of which he is also sta
president, for one month.

we are confidently observing
one month moratorium on a
boycott or punitive action
against B & W tobacco prod-
ucts. During the one month per-
iod, we have been assured that
a sincere effort will be made
to bring about a solution to the
problem which will permit Is-
rael to import the barred major
brand cigarettes manufactured
in America by Brown & Wil-
liamson as agent for the British-
American Tobacco Limited.
Brown & Williamson are a
wholly owned subsidiary of
British-American Tobacco Ltd.
British-American Ltd. has ord-
ered an embargo on export ship-
ments of major brand cigar-
ettes to Israel to appease the
Arab market. The Brown &
Williamson representative re-
quested the month hiatus in
order to negotiate seriously
with their parent company in
London and to seek an end to
this discriminatory sales policy
against Israel."
In the event the negotiations
between Brown & Williamson
and its parent company col-
lapses, the boycott and other
forms of protest will automati-.
cally be declared on Sept. 16 ,
which is the important Sabbath
between the- High Holy Days of
the Jewish New Year and Yom
Kippur.
