WASHINGTON (JTA) — The ad-
ministration urged Congress Tues-
day to reject a proposed ban on
cotton imports from Egypt on the
grounds that it would hamper U.S.
relations with Egypt and endanger
peacemaking efforts in the Middle
East at a "delicate and promising i
moment."
Eugene V. Rostow, undersecrt4
tary of state for political affair's,
told a Senate Agriculture Subcom-
mittee hearing that a bill passed
by the House to ban Egyptian cot-
ton could also delay restoration of
U.S. relations with the Arabs and
facilitate Communist penetration.
Rostow said that "such a step
would play into the hands of those )
who are actively seeking to widen!
the breach between the United
States and the Arab world, and in-
deed to take positions of control
in the internal affairs of the UAR,
Syria, Algeria and the Yemen."
The cotton bill now before the
Senate would ban Egyptian and
Sudanese cotton because those
governments, which declared war
on Israel last June. severed diplo-
matic relations with the United
States.
Domestic producers of cotton
had argued that adequate supplies
of the commodity were available
in the United States. They con-
tended that dollars paid to Egypt

Israel, Jewish Groups
Increase Aid to Sicily's
Earthquake Victims

ROME (JTA) — An Israeli mili-
tary transport plane flew from Is-
rael to the Trapani airfield in the
Sicilian earthquake area carrying
blankets, medicines and a complete
regimental first-aid unit, the gift
of Defense Minister Moshe Dayan
and Maj. Gen. Chaim Bar-Lev, the
Israeli chief of staff, to their Italian
counterparts.
The plan also brought three Is-
raeli doctors and two nurses to
work among the earthquake vic-
tims as long as their services are
required. The plane's cargo sup-
plemented previous shipments of
blankets, medical supplies and
blood plasma sent from Israel to
the Italian Red Cross.
The United Hias Service an-
nounced here a gift of 1,000,000
lire ($62,500) to the relief fund
for Sicilian earthquake victims, now
estimated to number about 100,-
000. Special contributions were an-
nounced by the Rome and Genoa
Jewish communities. Presidentt
Saragat's office announced receipt
of a message of sympathy from
Piesdient Batman Shazar of Israel.
