of Deputies and a leading
Johannesburg attorney, has
been appointed a member of
the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency board of directors,
it was announced by William
M. Landau, JTA president.
This appointment, Landau
said, is in line with the

that body to reflect the inter-

news activities.

in Lithuania, came to South
Africa in 1914, attended Grey
College in Port Elizabeth and
what was then Rhodes Uni-

binding arbitration in dis-
putes between a congrega-

Organizations, called on
President Nixon to reply to
Arab embargoes and cut-
backs with "an immediate
embargo on food, automo-
biles, aircraft, and manufac-
tured goods, and a ban on
tourism." He criticized the
submissive attitudes of some
European governments in the
face of Arab embargo
threats, pointing out that
European security "depends
on a strong, viable Israel
