TEL AVIV — An East Nigerian
firm in which a company owned by
Israel's Federation of Labor has a
40 per cent interest won an
5800.000 contract Wednesday to
build a new Soviet Embassy at
Lagos, capital of Nigeria. The con-

Solel Boneh's overseas and har-

firm owned by Histadrut, Israel's
Federation of Labor.

According to the report, the
money was transferred to Israel
two months ago but there was no
official confirmation of the trans-
action. Haaretz, the independent
daily, said the arrangement was
confirmed unofficially.
Under the original arrangement,
West Germany agreed to provide
Israel with $80,000,000 worth of
arms. A part was delivered be-
tween 1960 and 1964, when the
transaction became publi c, in-

Jews in Hungary Keep
Communal Organization
Intact, Briton Reports

LONDON (JTA)—Despite some
difficulties, the Jews of Hungary
have managed to keep the com-
munal organization intact, Col. Mar-
cus Lipton, a Labor member of
Parliament who recently visited
Hungary, reported to a Poale Zion
meeting here.
Col. Lipton, who visited Hungary
as a member of the British dele-
gation to a meeting of Inter-
parliamentary Union, said that the
synagogue in Budapest was open
and used and that the government
placed no obstacle in the way of
religious observances.
He also reported that the Jewish
community has institutions in
which students were trained for
the rabbinate and that Jewish
community leaders were allowed
to visit western countries and
make contact with their counter-
parts in those nations.'
He explained that because the
Hungarian government has made
Zionism taboo, Jewish religious
teachers had difficulties in teach-
ing religion to their pupils with-
out mentioning Zionism or Israel.
He added that the government
still allows a good many Jewish
one-man businesses to continue.
Col. Lipton also expressed the
opinion that if Hungarian Jews
were allowed to emigrate, many
would leave and settle- in Israel.
