leading oil companies dis-
criminate against the
employment of Jews in their
corporate headquarters, the
Anti-Defamation League of
Bnai Brith charged on the
basis of a two-year investi-
gation it conducted into the
employment practices of
Exxon, Texaco, Mobil,
Standard Oil of California,
Gulf and Shell oil com-
panies.
It claimed further that
those companies are pro-
tected by the federal gov-
ernment's failure to enforce
regulations intended to
eliminate discrimination
based on religion or na-
tional origin:
The findings of the study
were revealed by Ira Gissen,
director of ADL's discrimi-
nation department.
Gissen spelled out what
he called "classic dis-
crimination" on the
executive level among
the oil companies. It in-
cludes "recruitment
avoidance, promotion
levels beyond which
Jews cannot go, non-
assignment of Jews to
certain job areas and
stereotyped employ-
ment."
The report charged that
federal compliance officers
have in most cases not even
bothered to ask companies
whether they were doing
anything to comply with the
religion and national origin
guidelines contained in
Title 41, Section 60 of the
Code. of Federal Regula-
tions. The Office of Federal
Contract Compliance Prog-
rams is supposed to monitor
the enforcement of Title 41.

In that connection, the
ADL said it found that fed-
eral regulations requiring
implementation of equal
employment opportunity on
the basis of religion have
been largely ignored.
Although federal regula-
tions require that corpora-
tions must make-reasonable
allowances for- their
employes' religious needs
such as Sabbath obser-
vance, the ADL said the oil
companies do not make such
provisions.
Gissen said that dis-
crimination against Jews
is reinforced by the fact
that the oil companies
subsidize their execu-
tives' membership in re-
stricted clubs which
serve as business meet-
ing places. Therefore,
Jews are denied promo-
tion opportunities be-
cause they are denied
membership in such
clubs.
Gissen suggested that the
employment of Jews in such
departments as legal, ac-
counting and research was
"stereotyped."
In London, attempts to
curtail the Arab boycott in
Britain took an important
step forward when the
House of Lords referred
draft legislation outlawing
compliance with foreign

boycotts to a select commit-
tee for detailed considera-
tion.
The move was taken de-
spite strong opposition by
both the government and
Conservative opposition.
The draft legislation, enti-
tled the Foreign Boycotts
Bill,-had been introduced by
Lord Byers, the Liberal Par-
ty's leader in the upper
house. Under his bill,
businessmen who illegally
complied with such a
boycott could face fines of up
to 10,000 Pounds Sterling or
jail sentences of up to two
years.
More than 1000 British
companies had been
blacklisted for failing to
comply with the Arab
boycott, Lord Byers ad-
ded. Fear of the boycott
had caused a loss of busi-
ness and of jobs in Britain
and had even aroused
anti-Semitism.

In a related development,
Kuwaiti banking interests

continue to enforce the Arab
boycott against financial
institutions regarded as
sympathetic to Israel by re-
fusing to admit blacklisted
firms into underwriting
syndicates which they
manage or co-manage, ac-
cording to a study of inter-
national public financings
by the American Jewish
Congress.

The study, which covered
a 12-month period ending
last September, analyzed 28
separate underwritings in
which Arab underwriters of
blacklisted Jewish-owned
firms took part.
Analysis of these financ-
ings showed that:
• Arab underwriters —
chiefly, three Kuwaiti
banks — refused to admit
blacklisted firms into syn-
dicates they managed
co-managed;
• Arab firms refusea to
join syndicates managed or
co-managed by blacklisted
firms;
• Arab banks and
blacklisted firms took part
in the same underwritings
only when the management
of the syndicate was in
"neutral" hands.
Five banks were the
targets of the Arab
blacklisting policy, the
American Jewish Congress
study found. They were:
Banque Rothschild, Lazard
Freres & Co. (U.S.), Lazard
Freres et Cie (France), N.M.
Rothschild & Sons, Ltd. and
S.G. Warbug & Co., Ltd.
The three Kuwaiti banks
that carried out the boycott
were the Kuwait Foreign
Trading and Contracting
Co., Kuwait International
Investment Co. and Kuwait
Investment Co.

Ruth Kluger Holocaust. Sequels:
'Secret Ship' and South Lebanon

Ruth Kluger's dramatic
role in the escape of Jewish
captives from the Nazis in
Romania to the land of Is
rael, originally published as
"The Last Escape," has been
re-written by Miss Kluger
and Peggy Mann and pub-
lished as a children's book
by Doubleday.
"The Secret Ship" re-tells
the story of Miss Kluger, one
of the five living members of
the Mossad le Aliya Bet
(Organization of Illegal
Immigrants).
Miss Mann, who has writ-
ten more than 30 books for
children and adults, con-
ducted more than 1,000
hours of taped interviews
with Miss Kluger for "The
Secret Ship" and inter-
viewed many others before
writing the volume.
Miss Kluger was in De-
troit in December on be-
half of the United Jewish
Appeal and the Labor
Zionist Alliance. She said
she is working on a
sequel which she hopes
will be published by
mid-1978. •
"Novels are hard, but the
truth is bitter," she said.
Much of her time is now
taken up in Israel with help-
ing another oppressed
group, the Lebanese Christ-
ians. She is actively work-
ing with the Israel Public
Committee for Aiding
Lebanon, providing food,
clothing and medical
supplies to the Christians of
southern Lebanon.

"Haifa University has ac-
cepted 12 Lebanese stu-
dents, and wants to accept
more, but it is difficult be-
cause they have to return
home each afternoon for
guard duty," Miss Kluger
said.
She crossed the "Good
Fence" into Lebanon last
fall for the funeral of
Capt. Farah, a Lebanese
commander who was a
cousin of Detroiter Heidi
Brancheau.

"We just went to console
the family and they acted so
grateful." A mortar round

exploded nearby during the
funeral and Miss Kluger
said the children are becom-
ing used to living in bun-
kers.
The relief committee has
provided many items, in-
cluding a generator to re-
place one destroyed by the
PLO. "We've even sent
oranges and olives," she
said. "It is devastating to
think that we have to send
oranges and olives to Leba-
non."
Miss Kluger said that ev-
erything the committee
supplies has been donated
privately. Clothing drives
for the Lebanese have been
held throughout Israel.
"Christian organiza-
tions have done nothing
in south Lebanon," she
said. "The people know
we are the only ones to
help them. We couldn't sit
back and watch another
Holocaust."

RUTH KLUGER

Miss Kluger said her visit
to Lebanon was her first in
30 years. She was struck by
the destruction of the land,
"which used to be so lush.
But the people continue to
try to work the land, even
under fire."
Only two -miles separate
the nearest kibutz with
Lebanese Christian
of Alma el Chaap.
Miss Kluger is the only
woman active on the com-
mittee, and she says the
work has delayed her
sequel.

Arabs Increasing

CAIRO (ZINS) — The
world Arab population, at
125 million in 1973, is ex-
pected to reach 325 million
by the year 2000. A study by
the Arab Institute of De-
velopment in Beirut said
that if the birth rate were
reduced to 2.3 percent, the
year 2000 Arab population
would still be 240 million.
