LONDON (JTA) — The board
of governors of the Jewish Agen-

budget recommended by the Jew-
ish Agency Executive here Sun-
Max M. Fisher, chairman of
the board of governors, said at a
press conference that the meeting
was the first ever held by the
board of governors outside of Is-
rael. "We had no differences of
opinion as to aims and purposes,"
Asked why he is usually de-
scribed as a non-Zionist, Fisher
said "there might have been
differences in the past between
organized Zionists and the rest
of us but they do not exist any

Deutsch, whose plant is in Brook-

veloped among the members of
the staff—all of them Orthodox.
The Tzeitung's intention, he re-
