States Senate
Wednesday.
The incident

corres p ondent
of JTA, was
denied admis-
sion to a brief-
ing held by
Robert C.
Strong, direc-
tor of the State
Department's
Friedman
office on Near Eastern Affairs.
Friedman, on seeking admis-
sion to the briefing, was inform-
ed that attendance was by invi-
tation only. The correspondent
was informed. that Strong had
personally prepared the list of
correspondents to be permitted
attendance and that a JTA rep-
resentative was not desired be-
cause the briefing was only for
American media.
The Jewish Telegraphic
Agency and Friedman are fully
accredited to the Department of
State. The press section of. the
Department made it clear, how-
ever, that it could not overrule
Strong and tell him what cor-
respondents he was to see.

Strong himself, in a discus-
sion with the JTA correspond-
ent, said bluntly that he did
not approve of material Fried-
man had written on the Mid-
dle East, criticized Friedman
for what hi said was use of
information f r o m Congres-
sional sources which he said
reflected unfavorably on State
' Department policies, and com-
plained that Israeli diplomats
had used news items reported
by the JTA as the basis for
discussions with his depart-
ment.

to the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency." The Senator added
that he had been assured by the
State Department that "there
was no anti-Semitism involved
in this matter."

The Pennsylvanian quoted
to' the Senate from a report
on the incident by Merriam
Smith of United Press Inter-
national, the Dean of the
White House Correspondents
Corps. Smith described the
JTA correspondent as "a proud
birthright American" and de-
scribed the Jewish Telegraph-
ic Agency as "an s American
organization which deals pri-
marily with news concerning
Jews of many nations. The
Agency," he pointed out, "nat-
urally carries many. items of
news to and from Israel."

The Jewish Telegraphic
Agency disclosed that it intends
to make a full protest to Secre-
tary of State Dean Rusk against
the action by a State Depart-
ment official in discriminating
against the Agency and denying
it access to news of consider-
able interest and concern to the
American Jewish community.

Agency executives noted
that this was the first time it
had encountered such difficul-
ties in the State Department
or any branch of the United
States Government.

Strong was United States
Consul and First Secretary of
the American Embassy in Da-
mascus, Syria, from 1954 to
1958. He became director of the
Near Eastern Division in the
State Department in 1961.
