greater efficiency in industry to
cope with the problems of infla-
tion in Israel.

tended by Israel's cabinet minis-
ters concerned with economic af-

Speaking at a rally of factory

Israel's development a r e as and
pledged, in response to criticisms
of government bureaucracy, that
there would soon be dismissals in
the civil service.
Commerce and Industry Minis-
ter Haim Zadok caused an uproar
when he told his labor audience

caused by wages rising faster than
output. He said the crucial ques-

Swedish Premier Erlander Is Urged to Intervene for Soviet Jews

hum Goldmann, president of the
World Jewish Congress, met here
Monday with Sweden's Prime
Minister Tage Erlander and urged
him to take up the issue of dis-
criminations against Soviet Jews
by the Soviet authorities during his
forthcoming meeting with Soviet
Premier Aleksei Kosygin.
Addressing a mass meeting to
launch a fund-raising drive on
behalf of the Tel Aviv Museum of
History of European Jews, Dr.
Goldmann warned that preserva-
tion of Judaism in the current era
is endangered by the fact that
"Jews everywhere are compara-
tively well off."
"Indispensable to world
Jewry's survival," he stated, "is
the creation of new motivational
sources based primarily on Jew-
ish history, Jewish sufferings,
Jewish achievements. Education
and knowledge are needed to
create greater Jewish pride.
Without pride in Israel, one views
the Jewish future pessimistically.
Israel's great task is to replace
and surpass the annihilated
Jewish centers in Europe."
With regard to the position of
the Jews in the Soviet Union, Dr.

`Israel Day' Held

Israel has been honored by the
Soviet International Modern Agri-
cultural Machinery and Equipment
exhibition in Moscow. A "National
Day" was designated for Israel at
the exhibition on May 19, the re-
port said.
An Israel pavilion, with some 40

place" in the exhibition, the report
stated. Israeli participation was
favorably noted by Ivan Sinitsin,
minister of tractor and agricul-
tural machinery industry of the
USSR. A total of 700 enterprises
from 20 nations, including the
United States, are taking part in
the exhibition.

to list the questions.
The Foreign Minister empha-

Polish diplomat had increased his
belief in the "strength and sin-

"Common memories" of suffering
during the war formed an import-

added, declaring that only on

The Soviet Embassy report said
"Lively discussions in Russian and
Yiddish took place on Israel Na-

visitors, among whom were many
people of Jewish nationality, ex-
