Refused Lebanon Entry

LONDON (Z I N S) — Gavin
Astor, president of the Times
Newspapers of London, Ltd., was
refused entry by the Lebanese
immigration inspectors when he
landed at Beirut last week, ac-
cording to a report of the Jewish
Chronicle.
The refusal was on the grounds
that he is a director of the Alli-
ance Assurance Co. which is on
the black list of the Arab League.
When the Lebanese authorities
had second thoughts and decided
to allow him to enter after all,
it was too late. Astor canceled
his projected visit and flew back
to London.
