Euromart Executive

Holiday Party Ends in Tragedy

Import of Oranges

BRUSSELS (JTA)—The execu-
tive commission of the European
Common Market proposed a reduc-
tion in the minimum price for im-
ported oranges, which will ease a
crippling threat to Israeli citrus
sales in the six Euromart coun-
tries.
At the insistence of Italy, the
only Euromart country selling cit-
rus fruit to other Euromart coun-
tries, a reference price system was
set up which would have boosted
retail price substantially on citrus
fruits imported from Israel, Spain
and Morocco. Israel'and the two
other non-member countries had
protested the plan strongly.
The commission's new proposal
goes to the Euromart Council of
Ministers, the key decision-making
body of the six-nation bloc, which
is expected to approve it.
Israel citrus growers and eco-
nomic circles received the de-
cision with considerable satis-
faction.
Under the original proposal, the
six-nation trade block set a price
on imported oranges which would
have forced Israel to pay about $20
per ton on its orange exports to

PARIS—The once-dreary, drafty
inadequate Day and Night Shel-
ter, the youth and community
center of the North African
Jewish "Casbah," was rededicated
recently as a cheerful haven for
the deprived youngsters of this
area.
In this section of the 18th ar-
rondissement, in the labyrinth of
Montmartre, transplanted children
from Algeria had to play in the
streets because there was no room
in their overcrowded tenements.
Now the youth and community
center, at 12 rue des Saules,
known as the Merkaz de Mont-
martre, will be able to provide
enlarged facilities for Talmud-
Torah classes, recreation and
study space.
Attending the dedication were
the mayor of Montmartre, the
grand rabbi of Paris, the chairman
