WASHINGTON (JTA)—Officials,
of the Departments of State and
C ommerce have urged a Senate
subcommittee not to propose new'
legislation against the Arab boy- ,
cott of American firms trading
with Israel. Assistant Secretary of
Commerce K. N. Davis, Jr. and
Roger P. Davies, deputy assistant ;
Secretary of State, appeared be-
fore the Senate international h.'
nance subcommittee.
Davis said the Arab boycott had
not weakened Israel and that U.S.
action against the boycott was un-
necessary and undesirable. He
said if Congress enacted new
restrictions on Arab trade tactics,
all this would do would be to close

law calls on American business.;
men to refuse to cooperate with
the Arab boycott but it imposes no;
