THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Arab, Europe, American Banks
in NY Pledge Non-Discrimination

NEW YORK (JTA) — A
consortium of Arab, Ameri-
can and European banks
seeking a charter for a new
bank in New York State has
assured the American Jew-
ish Congress that it will
"adhere to principles of
equality and non-discrimi-
nation" in its lending and
hiring policies.
The assurances were
given after the AJCongress
had called on the State
Banking Department to re-
quire a pledge of non-dis-
crimination from the organ-
izers of the United Bank,
Arab and French, New York
(UBAF-N.Y.) as a condition
for issuing it a charter.
In a letter to the AJCon-
gress, the First National
Bank of Chicago—one of the
organizers of the new
bank—said that the new
bank's certificate of organi-
zation would contain the fol-
lowing provision:

"The bank intends to
conduct its operations in
full compliance with all
applicable requirements of
the United States and New
York State law; accord-
ingly, the bank will, in all
aspects of its operations,
adhere to principles of
equality and non-discrimi-
nation."

The AJCongress also re-
leased the text of a letter
from Ernest Kohn, acting
superintendent of the State
Banking Department, ex-
pressing "the firm convic-
tion of this Department that

discriminatory practices or
policies not only would be
inconsistent with the anti-
discrimination laws cur-
rently in effect but . . . are
incompatible with the pub-
lic service function of bank-
ing institutions in this
state."
Kohn wrote to the AJCon-
gress in response to a letter
from Rabbi Arthur Hertz-
berg, its national president,
following reports that the
Bankers Trust Company of
New York, First National
Bank of Chicago, Security
Pacific Bank of California
and Texas Commerce Banc-
shares . of Houston, Tex.
were putting together the
new financial institutions.
More than 20 Arab banks
and several from Europe
would reportedly be asso-
ciated with the American
banks in the founding of
UBAF-N.Y., and an esti-
mated 40 percent of the
bank's initial $25 million
capital will come from Arab
sources, news reports said.

Meanwhile, Syracuse
University is negotiating
with Arab governments
for grants to support uni-
versity research projects
but officials said the uni-
versity would reject any
grants requiring exclusion
of Jewish faculty and staff
members from the pro-
jects.

John J. Prucha, vice-chan-
cellor for. academic affairs,
said it was "inconceivable
that Syracuse University
would become involved in
* * *

any project with restric-
tions regarding religion or
nationality."
The academic issue devel-
oped earlier this month
when five midwestern univ-
ersities halted work on a
project at Riyadh Univer-
sity in Saudi Arabia after a
Jewish dean at Michigan
State University was denied
a visa to work on the pro-
ject.
Prucha said the univer-
sity had discussed with rep-
resentatives of the Saudi
Arabian Education Minis-
try whether involvement of
Jewish faculty members
would affect projects involv-
ing Saudi Arabia and that
"we received firm assur-
ances there would be no dif-
ficulties."

In Washington, the De-
partment of Commerce
said that Jordan had
agreed not to ask Ameri-
can firms which export
products to Jordan
whether there , are any
Jews on their boards.

The assurance was made
on the basis of a letter to the
Commerce Department,
sent by the State Depart-
ment, after the Commerce
Department notified the
State Department that an
American firm reported to
the Commerce Department
last month that it had been
asked by the Jordanian Min-
istry of National Economy
to certify there were no
Jews on its board of direc-
tors.

Mrs. Rabin Claims
TV Ignored Her;
Showed Mrs. Sadat

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Mrs.
Leah. Rabin has complained
that while the Arabic-lan-
guage broadcasts on Israeli
television showed a great
deal of the appearance of
Mrs. Jihan Sadat, wife of
Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat, at the International
Women's Conference in
Mexico City, the Hebrew-
language broadcasts ig-
nored her own appearance.
Speaking at a Haifa wom-
en's meeting, the wife of Is-
raeli Premier Rabin said her
appearance in Mexico was
the first time she faced the
world media and she used it
to preach Zionism.
She said the Mexican and
United States television net-
works prominently dis-
played both her and Mrs.
Sadat and she still receives
encouraging letters from
women in the United States.

Soviet Dancer
Makes U.S. Debut

NEW YORK — Interna-
tionally acclaimed ballet
dancer Vladimir Gelvan,
who emigrated to this coun-
try from the Soviet Union in
April with the help of
United HIAS Service, made
his U.S. debut with the
American Ballet Theater
Monday at Lincoln Center,
New York City.
One of Russia's foremost
young classical dancers,
Gelvan arrived here with his
wife and daughter. The
28-year-old Gelvan per-
formed in the Soviet Union
with' the Bolshoi, Kirov,
Opera Theater and Riga
companies since 1962. He
has toured in East Ger-
many, Hungary, Finland,
Great Britain, France, Ire-
land, Italy, the Netherlands,
Egypt and Mexico.

Miles Laboratories has, in
fact, annually been calling
the boycott's basic bluff
that Arab economic power
can cripple a major com-
pany. The American firm
has been continually ex-
panding investment in Is-
rael—and making a profit
with it.

Ltd., both in .Haifa—and
two joint ventures, Ames-
Yissum Ltd. in Jerusalem
and Miles Yeda Ltd. in Re-
hovot.

Miles Labs Resists Arab Boycott

LOS ANGELES — For
more than a decade, the
Arab economic boycott has
been directed against Miles
Laboratories - Inc., of Elk-
hart, Ind., according to a
recent article in the Los
Angeles Times.
"The company had the op-
tion in 1966 to get off the
list—by liquidating all oper-
ations in Israel," a Miles
spokesman said, "but the
company made the decision
to cope with it."
