Israel Sales to U.S. Up;
Trade Deficit Is Cut

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Israel sold
more and bought less in the United
States in 1967 than it did in 1966,
it was announced here. The coun-
try's exports to the U.S. amounted
to $89,900,000 last year compared
to $77,400,000 the previous year,
while im p or t s from America
tot all e d $195,600,000 in 1967
against $221,600,000 in 1966.
Israel's unfavorable trade balance
with the United States thus was
decreased by $38,000,000.
The figures were disclosed in
connection with Monday's an-
nouncement by U.S. Ambassador
Walworth Barbour that 53 Amer-
ican manufacturers will exhibit
their products at the Tel Aviv In-
ternational Trade Fair that opens
here on June 4. The ambassador
said, at an embassy press con-
ference, that $1,600,000 in orders
for American products was ex-
pected as a result of his country's
participation in the trade fair. The
'figure was a projection based on
orders arising from the last trade
fair here in 1966.
Most of the American equip-
ment and goods for display at the
fair will be landed at Haifa on
May 8 by the nuclear-powered
cargo ship Savannah, which will
be making her first call at an
Israel port. The exhibit items fall
into three categories and were
selected to meet the requirements
of the Israeli market and this
country's economic development
plans, Ambassador Barbour said.
Many of the exhibits will be on
display for the first time outside
of the U.S.A. Executives and top
technical personnel of the partici-
pating manufacturers will be on
hand for seminars and training
sessions on the operation of the
American equipment and to con-
duct negotiations for orders.

`Jumpy' El-Fatah Guards Fire
on 3 British MPs-One a Friend

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

LONDON—Trigger-happy guards
at the El Fatah base at Karameh
in Jordan opened fire Tuesday on
three visiting members of parlia-
ment, who turned their car around
and sped off, abandoning what was
to have been a fact-finding mis-
sion at the encampment. The in-
cident was reported by the Daily
Telegraph's Amman correspond-
ent, who accompanied the MPs
on their visit and drove with
them earlier to Jerusalem. The
three were identified as Dr. Ern-
est Davies, Colin Jackson and Dr.
David Owen, all Laborites. Jack-
son is known for his pro-Arab
The Telegraph's correspondent
attributed the hostile reception to
"jumpiness" on the part of El
Fatah members who fear that Is-
rael will mount night commando
raids and plant mines in Jordan
in line with a new counter-terror-
ist strategy. The correspondent
said that Arabs in Jerusalem con-
firmed that there has been a
marked reduction in El Fatah
raids on the West Bank since Is-
rael's March 21 attack on the
Karameh base.

The former Jordanian governor,
Anwar Khatib, told the Telegraph
correspondent that he is compil-
ing a long list of charges against
Israel which he will present to
the UN secretary general's new
emissary investigating the condi-
tions of Arab civilians in Israel-
occupied areas. He said "I am
including ill treatment, torture and
mutilation" of Palestinian Arabs
detained by Israel.

Jordanians opened fire four
times Tuesday afternoon on Is-
raeli positions in the northern Bei-
san Valley. The fire was returned
and there was no casualties. Mon-
day night an Israeli Army jeep
was attacked on the Araba road
south of the Dead Sea. The occu-
pants returned the fire and there
were no casualties.

(The Baltimore Sun reported
from Tel Aviv that an electronic
fence erected on the Jordan-Israel
cease-fire line as a protection
against infiltrators may be ex-
tended the entire distance be-
tween the Dead Sea and the Sea
of Galilee, about 45 miles, to pro-
tect the settlements in the Beisan
