conducted through the per-
sonal contact only between
Tzur and Rosenbaum were
actually recorded regularly
in the Israel Corp. books
and were open to inspec-
tion."
Judge Lowenberg noted
that these transfers were ef-
fected over a period of three
years, in open correspond-
ence between the two com-
panies, were reported to the
Israeli authorities and were
known to the corporation's
auditors. Rosenbaum had
no reason to suspect, the
judge continued, that the
transfers had been made by
Tzur acting alone and with-
out authorization.
The judgement may
have repercussions, too,
on the private criminal
prosecution which Israel
Corp. chairman, Baron
Edmond de Rothschild of
Paris, has brought against
Rosenbaum in the Swiss
courts. That prosecution is
also based on the $8.5 mil-
lion transfers. Rosen-
baum's lawyers are cer-
tain to argue that the Tel
Aviv judgment clears their
client of criminal com-
plicity in a conspiracy and
to press, therefore, to have
the charges dropped.

Rothschild's criminal
action against Rosenbaum
is the only criminal proceed-

Mexico Picks Jewish Diplomat
as Its United Nations Emissary

MEXICO CITY (JTA) —
Roberto Rosenzweig of Mex-
ico City has been appointed
Mexico's ambassador to the
United Nations.
Officials here said the
Jewish career diplomat was
being sent to the UN be-
cause of his experience in
the Middle East. Prior to his
new appointment, he had
been Mexican Ambassador
to Egypt. --
At the UN, Rosenzweig
succeeds Alfonso Garcia
Robles, who has been
named Mexican Foreign
Minister, succeeding Emilio
Rabasa, who resigned last
month.
In New York, the Con-
ference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations will
"reassess" its policy on
Mexico and has appointed
a committee "to make ap-
propriate recommenda-
tions in the near future,"
the conference said.
"The Conference of Presi-
dents of Major American
Jewish Organizations notes
an encouraging series of ac-
tions recently taken by the
government of Mexico in its
relationship with the Jewish
people."
While the statement did
not specify what were the
"encouraging series of
actions," they were be-
lieved to refer to the Mexi-
can government's decision
to absent itself from two
votes of UN specialized
agencies for the anti-Zion-
ist resolution at meetings
last month. One was a
meeting of UNESCO in
Paris and the other a
meeting of the Interna-
tional Civil Aviation Or-
ganization in Montreal.

Another such action was
understood to be current ne-
gotiations between Mexico
and Israel for landing rights
for El Al in Mexico which, if
successful, will mark the
Israeli international air-
line's first entry in to the
Latin American air travel
market.

ing that the 'ruined financier
faces. The Swiss banking
authorities, having exam-
ined the affairs of his
crashed empire, have not, to
date, pressed any criminal
charges. They seem to have
concluded that his losses,
set at 345 million swiss
francs, were the result of a
string of financial misfor-
tunes rather than of
breaches of the law.
In Tel. Aviv, the Israel
Corp. lawyer Amnon Gol-
denberg asked Judge Low-
enberg to amend his judg-
ment in order to make it
clear that he was not saying___
the Israel Corp. director
had a hand in the transfers..
The application was post-
poned pending the return of
Rosenbaum's lawyer, Avra-
ham Biran, to Israel. But
Judge Lowenberg stated
that this implication was
not his intention.

SMALL BEQUESTS
BUILD A
STRONG ISRAEL

If the tradition of including the Jewish
National Fund in the Will of every Jew were
invariably followed, sufficient resources would
be accumulated to ensure the future of the
young Jewish State on a sound basis of land
development, social welfare, and justice.

A bequest to the Jewish National Fund
should be as traditional as having a Blue Box
in one's home.

You may want your bequest to be
dedicated to afforestation, to a village, a
Nachlah, to a children's play area, to perpetual
yahrzeit or kaddish, or to some form of
permanent tribute in the names of persons
dear to you.

Consult the Foundation for Jewish
National Fund, 22100 Greenfield, 968-0820.
They will gladly co-operate with you in
working out plans to meet your special
requirements, in strict privacy.
