Richardson Calls Boycott Legislation Unnecessary

(Continued from Page 1)
Administration-spon-
sored bill was introduced by
Rep. Edward Hutchinson of
Michigan, the ranking Re-
publican on the House Judi-
ciary Committee. It is con-
sidered much weaker than
other bills now before Con-
gress.
The commerce secretary
said the only new legislation
needed is the Administra-
tion-sponsored bill intro-
duced by Rep. Edward
Hutchinson of Michigan,
the ranking Republican on
the House Judiciary Com-
mittee. It is considered
much weaker than other
bills now before Congress.
Richardson repeated
Administration claims
that "passage of legisla-
tion at this time might jeo-
pardize our ability to con-
tinue to work effectively
with Arab nations to
achieve a just and perma-
nent Mideast peace, which
is after all, he added, "the
only realistic way to end
the Arab boycott of Is-
rael."
Meanwhile, the Admin-
istration's record on the
Arab boycott against Israel
was reviewed by a variety of
supporters and defenders in
statements to several Con-
gressional committees last
week.
The principal defender
was Treasury Secretary
William E. Simon, who told
the House International
Relations Committee that
"no addititional legislation
is necessary or desirable at
this time." He said new leg-
islation "would be detrirnen-
XXXXXXXXXXXXX

tal to the totality of United
States interests both here
and in the Middle East."
Administration policy,
particularly in the Com-
merce Department, came
under sharp attack from
Rep. John Heinz III (R.-Pa.),
who assailed the Arab
blacklist of American firms
and individuals having deal-
ings with Israel. He warned
the committee that "we will
invite Arab intimidation of
every corporation, every re-
ligious and ethnic group and
every individual in our coun-
try unless the list is fought
now."
Will Maslow, general
counsel of the American
Jewish Congress, and Sey-
mour Graubard, national
chairman of the Anti-Def-
amation League of Bnai
Brith, both testified before
the House committee that
the Administration policy
of voluntary anti-boycott
action had failed. They
said that many business-

men would be willing to
defy the Arab threats if
they had laws on the books
backing their stand.
Dr. Arthur F. Burns, Fed-
eral Reserve Board chair-
man, asserted that Ameri-
can banks had a major role
in the boycott and that Con-
gressional action was
needed if diplomatic efforts
failed to solve the problem.
Widespread compliance
by American banks with an-
ti-Israel boycott demands
was also acknowledged by
Rauer Meyer, director of the
Commerce Department's
Office of Export Adminis-
tration, who reported that a
department survey dis-
closed that 119 American
banks received 10,443 re-
strictive requests covering
5,190 transactions during a
four-month period that
ended last March.
At present, federal law
requires only that compa-
nies, including banks, re-
port contracts containing
