Sen. William Proxmire (D-
Wis. ), a long-time supporter
of anti-boycott legislation,
has made a charge that the
anti-boycott bill signed by
President Carter last June
could be hurt by some of the
regulations issued by the
Commerce Department to
implement the new law.
Sen. Proxmire said in his
charge some of the pro-
posed regulations, to take
effect next Jan. 18, "viol-
ate” the intent of Congress

can business firms to con-
tinue to comply with the
Arab boycott.
Sen. Proxmire made his
charges in a letter sent last
Friday to Rep. Benjamin
Rosenthal, (D-NY), whose
subcommittee was sched-
uled to open hearings on the
guidelines Tuesday. The let-
ter was disclosed by The
New York Times.
Sen. Proxmire denounced
particularly two provisions
of the regulations which_he

listed firms and keep them
from competing for trade
in the Arab world, thus cre-
ating a "whitelist" of disr
advantaged American
He said the use by Ameri-
can firms of the "risk of
loss" provisions in contracts
would raise "a presumption
of illegality." These provi-
sions permit a contractual
clauge requiring the shipper
to assume the risk of loss of
non-delivery of his products

Commerce Dept. regu-
lations say that use of that

Proxmire also assailed a
regulation which deals with
the much-debated "unila-
teral election" provision of
the law. The proposed
guidelines say that firms
can provide information to
facilitate a purchaser's
choice of subcontractors,
provided they do not
exclude blacklisted firms.
But Sen. Proxmire said pro-
viding such a list may help
the purchaser enforce the
In accouncing the hear-
ings, Rep. Rosenthal said
that the projected regu-
lations might create loo-
pholes which would permit
firms "to comply with the
Arab boycott in ways unin-
tended by Congress."
Meanwhile, the Depart-
ment of Commerce has
repudiated and ordered the
retraction of a discrimina-
tory advertisement for
employment in Saudi
Arabia published in the
Placement Bulletin of the
U.S. Merchant Marine
Academy. The action was
taken in response to a com-
plaint from the Anti-Defa-
mation League of Bnai
According to Arnold For-
ster, ADL associate director
and general counsel, the
Academy's Placement
Office Bulletin had printed
an advertisement which
stated that applicants for a
job on a ship anchored off
Saudi Arabia "must be able
to obtain a Saudi visa." The
Saudis do not grant visas to
Jews. The advertisement
was published in behalf of a
private employer in San

The ADL complaint,
addressed to the Maritime
Administration of the
Department of Commerce,
pointed out that a Presiden-
tial directive, a memo-
randtun from the Secretary
of Labor, and official regu-
lations issued in February
by the Office of Federal
Contract Compliance Pro-
gram prohibited the pub-
lication of such discrimina-
tory requirements for
employment of Americans
