JWB Convention Speakers

Set for New Orleans Meeting

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The government announced
substantial increases in the
prices of 14 basic commodi-
ties, foodstuffs, fuel and
energy and public transpor-
tation. At the same time,
the pound underwent an-
other devaluation and now
stands at IL 7.52 to $1.
The price hikes are a di-
rect result of cutbacks in
government subsidies that
were decreed for economy
reasons. A 25 percent ceiling _
was placed on price in-
creases at the insistence of
Histadrut.
Israelis are paying: 14.7
percent more for gasoline;
25 percent more for bread;
20-25 percent more for milk
and cheese; and 20 percent_
more for frozen meat and
poilltry. Electric bills will go
up 5 percent and public
transportation by 25 per-
cent.
Meanwhile, a govern-
ment-appointed committee
has recommended that in-
vestments in Israel in for-
eign currency should be
'linked" to the dollar to pro-
tect them against ongoing
devaluation of the Israeli
pound. Without such protec-
tion (as is the situation at
present), such investments
are apt to drop steeply over
a relatively brief time span.
The committee, under
auditor Shalom Ronel, who
was a member of the five-
member BenShahar com-
mittee on tax reform, pro-
posed that the real value of

the investment dollar be
maintained — even after it
is translated into Israeli
pounds. It urged that firms
be allowed to allocate sums
out of the profits — as tax-
free expenses — to make
good the loss incurred to
their foreign investments
value through devaluation.

It also was reported that
20,000 government employ-
ees went on a four-hour
strike Sunday to protest a
decision by the ministerial
committee on wages to abol-
ish the "specific allowances"
hitherto paid to them.

POSTAGE METER

chairman Haim Bernstein
to call off the strike. Bern-
stein warned that the em-
ployes would be docked by
the government for the four
hours they didn't work.

HIAS Celebrates U.S. Bicentennial

NEW YORK (JTA) — The
92nd HIAS annual meeting
took on special significance
last week, as more than
1,000 visitors crowded into
the New York Hilton's Tri-
anon Ballroom, for a special
observance in honor of
America's Bicentennial. The
audience included hundreds
of recently resettled Soviet
Jewish immigrants.
At a special HIAS board
dinner, following the meet-
ing, the 1976 Liberty Award
was presented to Philip M.
Klutznick, honorary inter-
national president of the
Bnai Brith and a former
United States representa-
tive to the United Nations.

Klutznick, who recently
served on the President's
Adviso-ry Committee on
Vietnamese Refugees, was
honored for "long service in
defense of those human
rights which have brought
generations of immigrants
to America in search of free-
dom."
The meeting, which was
addressed by many promi-
nent public figures, also fea-
tured a musical tribute to
America and the role of
immigrants in building this
nation. Entering its 93rd
year of rescue and resettle-
ment service, HIAS has
aided over four million Jew-
ish refugees and migrants.

The Sport Coat shown, won a blue ribbon merit award at the 96th
Annual Convention of The Custom Tailors and Designers of America,
at the Roosevelt Hotel, New York City, for Steve Petix and his head

designer Phillip Formaro.
