the spokesman said. He
added that "the warning was
in general terms and not
tied to any specific knowl-
edge we have as to the actual
shooting" at Sieff's Central
London home.
(In Beirut, the Popular
Front for the Liberation of
Palestine claimed responsi-
bility for shooting Sieff. A
PFLP spokesman said Sieff
was a leader of the Zionist
movement which "committed
and is still committing crimes
and massacres against our
Palestinian people.")

was removed from the hospi-

was reported that he was
doing very well and was sit-

Sieff's personal secretary
told the JTA that "the opera-
tion for the removal of a
bullet in Mr. Sieff's head was
completely successful and he
has stood up much better
than expected ... He has not
spoken before or after the
operation and the police are
still waiting to interview him
when it is possible. It will
take several days before it
can be ascertained whether
a complete recovery is like-

Sieff is president of Marks
and Spencer, one of the
world's largest retail stores.
He is president of the Joint
Israel Appeal, honorary vice
president of the Zionist Fed-
eration and president of the
Zionist Federation's Educa-
tion Trust. His elder brother,
Lord S'ieff, is vice president
of the World Jewish Con-
gress.
Immediately after the at-
tack, police cordoned off the
area surrounding Sieff's man-
sion and tightened their
security around other lead-
ing British Jews. A police
spokesman said there has
been maximum security for
leading British Jews for the
past two years after threats
had been made against the
life of Sieff, members of his
family and other prominent
Jews.
(The late I s r a el Sieff,
father of Joseph Sieff, estab-
lished the Sieff Institute,
which preceded the Weiz-
mann Institute, in Rehovot.
He was the first Lord Sieff,
was closely associated in
Zionist work with Dr. Chaim
Weizmann and was among
the most generous Jewish
philanthropists of this cen-
tury. He was one of the
pioneers in British Zionism
and the World Zionist Move-
ment.)
Heathrow and all other air-
ports throughout Britain
were on a special alert Wed-
nesday after Scotland Yard
reported Arabs on the loose
in Europe seeking new ter-
rorist targets.
The Evening Standard re-
ports that security authori-
ties at Heathrow now have a
list containing 30 names of
terrorists who may be trying
to pass through London or
get into the country intent
on attacking prominent Jews.
The list is being kept a close
secret but airline officials
have been informed and told
to watch for the names.
Police are said to be aware
that these terrorists might be
traveling on false passports.
Immigration control men are
now working in close coop-
eration with Scotland Yard
scrutinizing all Middle East
passports. Any passengers
even slightly suspect are
being searched. A tight watch
is also being kept on diplo-
matic mail and luggage
which is normally exempt
from airport controls. Police
have been told to keep the
closest possible watch on
luggage being brought in for
embassies, specially Arab
embassies.
Possible Labels Theft
Sparks Fears in U. S.
ATLANTA -(JTA) — The
Israel Government Tourist
Office here suspects that a
quantity of its envelopes and
labels may have been stolen
from its premises early last
month and could be used to
send letter bombs to unsus-
pecting recipients. Marcia
Goldman, a secretary at the
IGTO, told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that the FBI,
called in to investigate the
possible theft, agreed that
letter bombs could have been
the motivation.
Miss Goldman said that the
IGTO, which employs four
persons including its direc-
tor, Reuven Harli, is not cer-
tain that a theft took place.
She said suspicion was
aroused when a door lock
was found broken Dec. 3 in-

dicating a possible break-in.
But according to Miss Gold-
man, everything inside was
"intact" and nothing was
missing except, possibly en-
velopes and labels which the
IGtO uses in its mailings.
She said, however, that there
was no absolute evidence
that large quantities of en-
velopes or labels were miss-
ing.
(The JTA was informed by
the Jewish Theological Semi-
nary of America in New
York, that it learned of the
theft from friends outside
New York. According to a
seminary spokesman, an FBI
agent in Atlanta identified as
Mr. Held announced that an
unspecified number of air-
mail and regular envelopes
of various sizes and an un-
specified number of blank
labels with the IGTO return
addresses were stolen from
the Atlanta office, possibly
for use as letter bombs. The
labels were described as
printed in Roman type in
orange ink on white, bearing
the IGTO emblem—two men
carrying a vine of grapes.
Underneath they carry the
IGTO address in Atlanta, 795
Peachtree St. NE, Suite 635.)
In Washington, Sen. Henry
Jackson, commenting on
threats on his life by Arab
terrorists, said he will not
be blackmailed and that his
support of Israel will not be
lessened by the energy crisis.

five Arab terrorists who at-

his boots. He was identified
as Portes Maria Olbo, with
a Portuguese passport. He
said he bought the gun in the
U.S. for his brother in Rot-
terdam.

In Amsterdam, West Ger-
man authorities have warn-
ed officials at Schiphol Air-
port that two Black Septem-
ber groups entered Western
Europe through Brussels last
week.
The terrorists are re-
portedly armed with SAM-7
rockets. Furthermore, the
government has ordered in-
creased vigilence during the
holidays at all vital points of
the country's natural gas net-
work to guard against possi-
ble sabotage. Exceptional
security measures will also
be maintained at oil refin-
eries and chemical industries
sites in the Rotterdam area.
