Israel Museum Adding
Youth Wing to Mark
Its First Anniversary

JERUSALEM — An immigrant
from Yemen — side curls covering
his ears — who had never visited
a museum before was given life-
long free entrance to the Israel
Museum.
He happened to be the half-mil-
lionth visitor to the museum, ten
months after its inauguration. The
man, Shalom Amram, 33, af Bin-
yamina believed that he won the
prize because he had honored his
old mother, having induced her
to take the long bus trip to Holy
Jerusalem on the feast of Passover.
The Israel Museum, Jerusalem,
was inaugurated in May 1965.
Within one year nearly 600,000
people visited the museum. It has
attracted some 20 per cent of the
entire population of the country.
On the occasion of its first an-
niversary, the Israel Museum is
adding a new section to the exist-
ing ones. Apart from the Shrine
of the Book, where the Dead Sea
Scrolls are housed, the Billy Rose
Art Garden, the Bezalel National
Art Museum and the Samuel Bronf•
man Biblical and Archaeological
Museum, a Youth Wing is now be-
ing opened.
This wing will be divided into
two parts, named after the do-
nators: the Sather-Kennedy Class-
rooms and Studios; the Hilda and
Manasche Ben-Shlomo Auditorium
and Exhibition Wing.
As a special "birthday present"
. the highest Israel prize of arts
and science was given to the archi-
tects of the museum—Professor Al
Mansfeld and Mrs. Dora Gad. They
_ won the Prize of Israel in Architec-
ture for the design of the Israel
Museum, which is composed of in-
dependent-joint pavilions with roof
suspended on pillars.

Atlantic City Resolution
Strikes at Arab Boycott

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

ATLANTIC CITY — The Atlan-
tic City Council adopted a resolu-
tion urging businessmen to refrain
from any cooperation with the
Arab League boycott against Israel.
The resolution cited the amend-
ment to the Export-Import Control
Law. The resolution said the city
council was joining with the sec-
- retary of commerce in "urging
and requesting all businessmen to
refrain from taking any action,
• including the furnishing of in-
formation or signing of agreements,
which has the effect of further-
ing or supporting restrictive trade
practices or boycotts fostered or
imposed by foreign countries
against other foreign countries
friendly to the United States."

Yiddish Broadcasts Nixed
if Brazil Chief Wins Out

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

RIO DE JANEIRO — A bill
passed by Congress, permitting
the use of foreign languages, in-
cluding Yiddish, on Brazilian
radio and television broadcasts,
was vetoed Wednesday by Presi-
dent Humberto Castelo Branco.
Marshal Castelo Branco explain-
ed that he was opposed to the
use of foreign languages in
broadcasting because he wants to
avoid "the perpetuation of racial
differences in the Brazilian com-
munity" and because the govern-
ment lacks the facilities to moni-
tor broadcasts in all non-Portu-
guese languages.
The bill now goes back to Con-
gress, in Brasilia, where the presi-
dent's veto could be overridden by
a two-thirds majority.
