(JTA )—The
LONDON
first legislation designed to
combat the effects of the
Arab boycott of Israel on
British firms was in-
troduced Tuesday in the
House of Lords by Lord
Byers, a leading Liberal
peer. Supporters of the
measure in both houses of
Parliament predicted that
it would eventually be
adopted, but not without a
long battle during which it
will be strongly opposed by
the pro-Arab lobby.
As Parliament recesses
shortly, the bill will have to
be re-submitted at the next
session in October. Arthur
Bottomley, MP who is chair-
man of the all-party Com-
mittee to Combat Foreign
Trade Boycotts, said that
he believes the government
privately welcomes the bill,
which parallels legislation

recently enacted in the
United States and similar
moves in France and Can-
ada.
MP Greville Janner, an-
other member of the com-
mittee, said the govern-
ment would have to decide
whether to grant the meas-
ure debating time. An alter-
native would be to put it in
the hands of a select com-
mittee. He said it has a
good chance of success in
the long run.
The bill makes it an of-
fense for any person to
seek or provide information
concerning another persons
religion, racial or national
origin, business connections
or membership in or con-
nection with any organiza-

Sea Tide Ends
Beach Separation
Urged by Orthodox

NEW YORK—The Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai
Brith last week revealed
that three American corpo-
rations and two banks
named last month by the
Arab Boycott Committee as
having submitted proof of
compliance with anti-Israel
boycott rules "were being
used as innocent pawns in
an Arab propaganda effort
to counter the new U.S.
anti-boycott law."
All five firms—General
Electric, General Motors,
Westinghouse, Barclays
Bank and Bank of Amer-
ica—have informed ADL
that they do pot discrimi-
nate and that they maintain
business relationships with
both Israel and the Arab
world.
The responses came in an-
swer to the agency's
request for "what documen-
tation, if any" had been sub-
mitted to the Arab boycott
office in exchange for not
being blacklisted.
It had been announced at
the Arab Boycott Com-
mittee conference in Alexan-
dria, Egypt, that Barclays
was removed from the
blacklist and GE, GM, West-
inghouse and Bank of Amer-
ica would not be put on be-
cause, following warnings,
they had given proof of not
having business ties with Is-
rael.

NEW YORK (JTA )—A
long-standing controversy
involving the legality and
esthetics of a sexually seg-
regated beach–was at least
temporarily settled over the
July Fourth weekend when
the fences dividing the area
were washed away by the
tide barely two hours after
they went up.
The barrier was put up
by a Long Beach Orthodox
community with the approv-
al of City Manager Lau-
rence Farbstein to provide
a special swimming area in
accordance with strict Or-
. thodox Jewish law.
Despite criticism of the
concept by city council
members and Councilman
Robert Leslie's charges
that Farbstein was "cour-
ting the Orthodox vote" and
had acted illegally in grant-
ing permission without the
authorization of the city
council, Farbstein main-
tained that his actions were
neither political nor illegal.
He said he had consulted
informally with members of
the city council and had
found almost unanimous ap-
proval.

Reform Rabbis
Endorse Boycott

New York (JTA )—The
growing national consumer
boycott against products
made by the giant J: P. Ste-
vens textile corporation re-
ceived a significant boost
when the Central Confer-
ence of American Rabbis
(CCAR), at its annual con-
vention held at Grossinger,
N.Y. June 23, voted unani-
mously to endorse the boy-
cott, it was reported by the
Amalgamated Clothing and
Textile Worker's Union,
AFL-CIO, Canadian Labor
Congress.
The endorsement by the
CCAR, the 1,300-member or-
ganization of Reform rabbis
in the U.S. and Canada,
came in the form of a resolu-
tion which urged "that the
boycott of the J. P. Stevens
Company products be sup-
ported until such time as
collective bargaining takes
place in good faith"; and it
"encouraged" members of
the CCAR "to support and
strengthen the Stevens boy-
cott.'

tion if such information is
sought because of a trade
boycott.
It also requires those re-
ceiving a boycott request or
demand, to report it to the
Trade Department within
28 days and requires the de-
partment to publish a regis-
ter of requests quarterly.
