ARAIIICO Discriminates Against Jews
NEW YORK (JTA)—The New or contributors to, the American
York State Commission Against Jewish CongreSs or any other
Discrimination started a public of affiliated with the
hearing on charges by the Amer- World Zionist Movement.
Citing from the purposes of

Shad Polier, vice-president of reject as improper that part of
the American Jewish Congress, the question dealing with affilia-
who is serving as counsel in tion with the World Zionist
the case, charged that "Aram-
co uses the possibility of travel
to Saudi Arabia as a formula
to disguise the fact that it is
actually honoring a commit-
ment to its business partner
— Saudi Arabia — to exclude
Jews from any part of its pay-
roll, foreign or domestic."
Chester Bordeau, - counsel • for
Aramco, raised the question of
the constitutionality of the pro-
ceedings in asserting that Article
II of the Federal Constitution
gives the executive branch of the
government the power to con-
duct the foreign policy and de-
fense of the United States.
The Aramco lawyer quoted a
1958 letter by Assistant Secre-
tary of State William M. Roun-
tree that a ruling requiring
Aramco to hire Jews for Saudi
Arabia would "prejudice the
company's operations" in Saudi
Arabia and would "probably ad-
versely affect other United States
interests there as well."
In reply, Polier noted that
the State Department official
had confined his objections
only to a SCAD order that
would compel Aramco to em-
ploy persons of the Jewish
faith in Saudi Arabia — not to
any determination that would
bar discrimination by Aramco
in domestic employment.
"To say that the Constitution
re,quires New York State to per-

ination in the name of the
company's private business ar-
rangements with a foreign gov-
