Chairmen of the men's and wom-
en's divisions of the Flint United
Jekvish Appeal Campaign feel a
significant "charge to the cam-
paign atmosphere" as a result of
Mrs. Levi Eshkol's appearance at
the annual campaign dinner March
28, and the women's division lunch-
eon March 29.
Associate chairman Dr. Jack
Stanzler stated at the men's din-
ner, "The people of Israel are the
most heavily taxed people in the
world, and are faced with the
enormous cost of defending them-
selves against enemies bent on
annihilating them. Because their
costs are so high, the Israelis have
little money left to continue to help
us maintain essential humanitar-
ian programs. Therefore, we must
give as we have never given be-
fore. We must meet our full re-
sponsibility for the programs estab-
lished by the UJA in Israel, or
these programs will simply cease
Mrs. Eshkol outlined the cur-
rent conditions in Israel and
asked that Flint Jewry under-
stand and accept the challenge
presented to them.
At the conclusion of Mrs. Esh-
kol's remarks at the women's divi-
sion luncheon, Mrs. Sol Schafer
stated that "some women mistak-
enly believe that because their
husbands give, there is little that
they as women can do. There is a
place for women here. They are
desperately needed, not only for
the money they can give, but also
for their time and efforts. In our
past campaigns, the women of this
community have done a splendid
job in rallying support for UJA.
We hope that this 1971 campaign
will engender even greater

There is no Mobil "boycott'
There never was.
The purpose of this message is to
deny recent reports—false reports—al-
leging that Mobil is involved in a world-
wide boycott of Jewish products.
These reports deeply trouble Mobil
employees, dealers, shareholders,
business associates, customers, and
suppliers. We are taking this opportu-
nity to make it clear that such allega-
tions are erroneous.
Here are the facts:
Last year. a London-based marine
subsidiary of our company that handles
the provisioning of part of our foreign-
flag fleet sent a letter to ships' sup-
pliers. Several of our vessels had been
fined for carrying, as ships' stores,
products that could not be imported
under the laws of one of the countries
where these ships call. So the sup-
pliers were asked to help our ships
operate within the law.
However, the letter, which was writ-
ten by an employee who was far below
the policy-making level, inadvertently
violated Mobil's completely open pur-
chasing policy. The intent of the letter
was widely misinterpreted, leading the
press to mistakenly report that Mobil
was engaged in a worldwide boycott of
Jewish products. This, understandably,
gave rise to a number of protests.
As soon as our management in New
York learned of the letter, we took steps
to rectify the situation. As a result, we
withdrew all prior instructions to sup-
pliers. We informed them that our pur-
chasing policy provides, as it always
did, that quality, availability, and price
are the only criteria for the provision-
ing of any of our ships.
We notified 24 major American-Jew-
ish organizations of our action through
a letter from a member of our manage-
ment to a representative of the Presi-
dents Conference of those organiza-
We have tried in other ways to cor-
rect the misstatement of our position.
We have held meetings with represen-
tatives of leading Jewish organizations.
'We have called on newspaper editors.
VVe are writing and speaking to every-
one who has expressed his concern
to us. •
We at Mobil sincerely regret the mis-
understanding caused by the letter
We repeat: There is no Mobil boy-
cott. There never was.
