Israel, Egypt May Lead Worldwide Cotton Market

NEW YORK — The con-
clusion of a peace treaty be-
tween Israel and Egypt
opens up a practical possi-
bility for both countries to
eventually obtain a strong
hold on 'cornering' the
world's cotton market.
The potential for Egypt to
increase her long-time main
cash crop, long-staple cot-
ton, by annexing the
technological expertise of
Israel in quality fiber prod-
uction could well enable
each country to reap large
Production of cotton in
the Nile Valley surpasses
that of Israel, with 400,000
tons predicted as the output
for Egypt this year. Al-
though this amount places
Egypt at a production level
of less than 3 percent of the
world's cotton, she con-
tinues to control one of the
major sub-markets in that

commodity by producing
more than 40 percent of the
quality cotton.
That cotton-textile
production is of major
importance to Egypt
(providing 45 percent of
her export earnings and
about 10 percent of her
GNP) is not accidental,
since Egypt, a tropical
country, has long utilized
her natural resources of
cultivatable land, water
and climate to obtain her

years. Israel has grown to
compete significantly in the
global market for quality
cotton production, with an

Medallion Recalls
Dubinsky Protest

ST. LOUIS (JTA) — Mel-
vin Dubinsky, former
chairman of the United Is-
rael Appeal, received a gold
medallion here in recogni-
tion of his lifelong service to
world Jewry which also was
symbolic of the medallion
he denied himself by refus-
ing to participate in 1936
Olympics in Berlin.
Jerold C. Hoffberger, the
new UIA chairman, said the
medallion was "recognition
of an unrealized dream" of
Dubinsky — to win an
Olympics gold medal. Cho-
. sen to join the U.S. ice skat-
ing team for the 1936
Olympics, Dubinsky re-
fused as a protest against
Hitler's Third Reich.
The dinner at which the
medallion was presented
was sponsored jointly by the
United Jewish Appeal, the
St. Louis Jewish Federation
and the UIA. Dubinsky also
served as a UJA national
chairman and president of
the federation.

Senior_ Housing

ninth Bnai Brith housing
project for the elderly in the
U.S. was recently dedicated
in Houston. The nine-story
Goldberg Towers has 63 ef-
ficiencies, 67 one-bedroom
units, eight two-bedroom
units and 12 apartments for
the handicapped.
Bnai Brith has five more

tion in Israel is ahead of cit-
rus as an agricultural
source of revenue, it is actu-
ally less than 1 percent of
total world production.
Quality-wise, (number one
globally) Israel produces
1,200 lbs. per acre to Egypt's
production of only 674 lbs.
per acre.
If Egypt, with Israel's as-
sistance, achieves the lat-
ter's yield per acre, it could
double her share of the total
world production, adding an
additional 10 percent to
Egypt's GNP. The benefits
accruing to Egypt are self-
evident; the benefits accru-
ing to both countries under
this arrangement are eco-
nomically staggering.
This people-to-people cot-
ton movement could even-

tually enable both countries
to achieve joint leadership
in world production and ex-
port of that softest of all
goods cotton.
