Israel Bond Organization • Announces
$66,500,000 Campaign _Goal for '62

NEW YORK—A goal of $66,-
500,000 in Israel Bond sales dur-
ing 1962 was unanimously
adopted this week-end at the
Planning Conference of the
Board of Governors of the Israel
Bond Organization.
The achievement of the new
goal would bring to $600,000,000
- the total sold from the inception
of the drive to the end of 1962.
A record total of $57,214,300
in Israel Bonds was sold during
1961 to finance the development
of every phase of Israel's econ-
omy, Dr. Joseph J. Schwartz,
vice president of the Israel Bond
Organization, reported. He noted
that the amount raised in 1961
was the largest in any single
year since the Inception of the
drive in 1951. It represented an
11 per cent increase over the
$51,625, 350 realized in 1960.
Schwartz stressed the signifi-
cance of the - "Unprecedented
sale" of Israel Bonds in high-
lighting their role in the coun-
try's economic development.

through the sale of Israel Bonds
"to enable us to carry on the
orderly absorption of large num-
bers of new immigrants in the
coming year."
In an address -urging support
of the Israel Bond drive, Senator
Hubert H. Humphrey, Majority
Whip of the U.S. Senate, said
that "the increase in Israel's
strength, economically, political-
ly and militarily is a factor of
stability. This is in our national
interest, and is a contribution to
world peace.

"Our interest in Israel," he
added, "is intensified because
the State of Israel is proving
that a democratic society—
free people with free rep
can political institution
n
develop an underdev
ed
country, can plan witho loss
of individual liberty, can end
both public and private
ter-
prise into one economy.

cracy's answer to totalitarian-
