Durham answered yes
when he was asked by Sen.
Church whether any Jew in
the Army corps had to pre-
sent a statement that he
was not of the Jewish faith
in order to get a visa to go to
Saudi Arabia. "In effect,
then," Sen. Church said,
"when we accept this limita-
tion, it is a de facto exclu-
sion of individuals and con-
cerns."

Under- questioning by
Sen. Clifford Case, (R-N.J.)
Durham said that the mat-
ter was "beyond the purview
of the Corps." Case then
asked, "if the requirements
of a project is to go to Saudi
Arabia, a Jew cannot go?"
Durham replied, "That is
correct." Durham said that
all agreements undertaken
by the Corps were approved
by' the State Department.

Durham said the only
other project involving the
Corps in the Arab countries
is a naval laboratory station
in Egypt. Col. Joseph Ben-
nett, Durham's deputy, said
that he was "wrong and I
apologize" for having told
the assistant counsel for the
subcommittee, Jeffrey B.
Shields, that the Saudi Ara-
bians had vetoed "one or two
companies" which the Corps
had submitted to Saudi Ar-
abia. He said that the Sau-
dis had questioned names
on the list and "that gener-
ated speculation."

Sen. Lloyd M. Bentsen (D-
Texas), who last week an-
nounced his candidacy for
the Democratic nomination
for the Presidency, called
Sunday upon the Adminis-
tration to "speak up now" in
public protest against the
serious economic threat to
Israel posed by the Arab
economic boycott. In' re-
marks at the 67th annual
award dinner of Bnai Zion,
the American Fraternal
Zionist Organization, Bent-
sen stated, "Never has Is-
rael been more threat-
ened—politically, militarily
and economically."

He said there seem to be
too few in this country who
realize the dimensions of
the economic threat to Is-
rael. "But our own experi-
ence with inflation, reces-
sion and the Arab oil

boycott should serve to em-
phasize the fact that an eco-
nomic threat can be as dan-
gerous as a military threat
to a nation's natural secu-
rity," Bentsen stated.
He said that of great con-
cern to him "is the widening
Arab economic boycott
against Israel. I believe that
it is high time the United
States protested publicly
and formally what amounts
to a state of economic belli-
gerence. No military or pol-
itical settlement will bring
peace to the Middle East or
insure Israel's survival un-
less there is also a cessation
of the economic warfare
being waged against Israel
by the Arab nations."

Meanwhile, New York
State Attorney General
Louis J. -Lefkowitz has
started a probe into re-
ported pressures from
Arab sources on New York
securities firms, while the
American Jewish Con-
gress said that Arab in-
vestment in U.S. compa-
nies was good - for the
American economy pro-
vided that legislation was
enacted to prevent dis-
crimination against Amer-
ican citizens and boycotts
against America's friends
abroad resulting from
Arab pressure.

In a resolution adopted by
the national executive com-
mittee, the AJ Congress
called for establishment of
a federal agency — similar
to the Securities and Ex-
change Commission — that
would compel disclosure of
foreign investment in U.S.
companies and "continously
report" to the public on the
extent of foreign ownership
of American enterprise. The
federal agency would also
be responsible for foreign
investment.

In Copenhagen, several
Scandinavian companies
have refused to comply with
the Arab boycott of Israel.
The Danish F.L. Smith Co.
supplier of the machinery
for the cement factories in
Haifa and Ramle, recently
refused to sign part of a con-
tract it made with Iraq.
The unsigned paragraph
stipulated that the com-
pany should have no com-
mercial dealings with Is-
rael. The $100 million
contract will go into effect
without the boycott para-
graph. It was reported
that two unnamed Norwe-
gian companies have done
likewise.
Israel's exports to the
United States have encoun-
tered no special problems
because of Arab pressure,
but in some cases in Europe,
Arab pressure has been ef-
fective, Adin Talber, direc-
tor general of the Ministry
of Commerce'and Industry,
said in Jerusalem
In Paris, Jewish students
covered the walls of Arab
and pro-Arab banks with
pro-Jewish slogans. An-
other form of popular pro-
test against the Arab boy-
cott has been the closing of
accounts at the banks in
question.
