U.S. Boycott Legislation Is Called
Reasonable by Business and Jews

ment's implementation of
the new policy. • But both
sides are—and have good
reason to be—proud of
themselves."
Stanley Marcus, the 35-
year-old Connecticut lawyer-
who served as counsel to
the Senate banking sub-
committee that drafted the
bulk of the legislation under
the direction of Sen. Adlai
Stevenson (D-I11.), is the
new deputy assistant secre-
tary of commerce with re-
sponsibilities to implement
the measure.
Bronfman, a member of
the Bnai Brith Anti-Defa-
mation League, the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee and
the American Jewish Con-
gress—the three groups
that negotiated the legisla-
tion with the Business
Roundtable consisting of
170 corporate chief execu-
tive officers—gave much
credit to Irving Shapiro, the
Roundtable's chief, for the
legislation which had bog-
ged down in a dispute be-
tween Jewish and business
leaders.
When Shapiro, chairman
of I.E. DuPont de Ne-
mours, Inc., read in the
Wall Street Journal "an
angry two-page ad placed
by Dresser Industries, an
oil equipment company,
damning the proposed anti-
boycott legislation altogeth-
er, he phoned one of ADL's
principal negotiators, Wash-
ington lawyer Max Kampel-
man, and proposed the two
sides try meeting again,
with all recent enmities put
aside," Bronfman wrote.
"Within a week, both sides
were meeting again in
Washington and New
York."
After that "Shapiro went
to work on his business con-
stituents" to approve the

WASHINGTON (JTA )—
The Senate adopted by a
voice vote the Senate-House
Conference Export Adminis-
tration Act with its provi-
sions countering the Arab
boycott of Israel. No dis-
sent was heard as the legis-
lation was approved with-
out debate.
Edgar M. Bronfman,
chairman of the World Jew-
ish Congress coordinating
committee on the Arab boy-
cott, described the legisla-
tion as "reasonable" and
that "sensible legislation
a l at the Arab boycott'
w4., reached in discussions
between American busi-
ness, the American Jewish
community and the Carter
Administration.
Writing in the New Repub-
lic, Bronfman said: "From
the point of view of the
American Jewish commu-
nity, the bill certainly is not
perfect, but it is a good bill
squarely putting the United
States and its business com-
munity on record against
boycott practices. From the
standpoint of American busi-
ness, - the legislation may
still cause some difficulties,
but it is reasonable. Much
is still to be worked out in

TEL AVIV (JTA)—A 30-
minute documentary filmed
clandestinely under condi-
tions of great danger in So-
viet prisons and labor
camps, which depicts the
life of terror led by political
prisoners, has been
smuggled to the West and
will be distributed through-
out the world.
According to Avraham
Shifrin, an aliya activist
now in Israel, who spoke at
a press conference in Tel
Aviv, release of the film
was timed to coincide with
the Belgrade conference,
where among other topics,
the liberalization promised
by the Soviets at the Hel-
sinki conference will be ex-
amined by the Western
countries.
to . Shifrin,
According
there are at least 700 pris-
ons and labor camps, which
hold political prisoners
from various countries, in-
cluding the U.S., France,
England, Spain, West Ger-
many, Iran, Syria, Egypt,
Greece, Turkey and Japan.

ton Joseph, the ADL's chair-
man described by Bronf-
man as "an old Minnesota
friend of Shapiro," was
quoted by Bronfman as
saying that "it was altogeth-
er a historical effort in
showing the rest of the
world how to develop a
practical consensus among
people who have been badly
treated by Arab countries."
