compliance by American
firms with the Arab boycott
of Israel.
Cameron Iron Works Inc.
of Houston, Texas, was or-
dered to pay a civil penalty
of $65,000 and "undertake a
number of internal correc-
tive measures" to insure its
future compliance with the
anti-boycott law. The com-
pany accepted the penalty
under a consent agreement,
although it neither "admits
nor denies the truth of the
allegations but wishes to
settle" the matter.
In addition, the company
is required to file a report on
its corrective measures with
the Commerce Department
within six months.
The Commerce De-
partment charged that
Cameron had "re-
peatedly furnished in-
formation" from its
offices in Houston and
Leeds, England, to its
customers in Kuwait,
Abu Dhabi, Oman, Qatar,
Iraq and Libya "to the ef-
fect that Cameron's
products were not of Is-
raeli origin." Cameron
had "repeatedly engaged
in the sale and shipment
of manufactured oil
equipment" to the coun-
tries named, the depart-
ment said.
"The U.S. anti-boycott
law prohibits United States
persons from furnishing in-
formation about business
relationships with boycot-
ted countries when such in-
formation is furnished with
intent to comply with,
further or support an un-
sanctioned foreign boycott,"
the department said.

plaint dismissed because
the division had "unrea-
sonably exceeded" the
statutory limit of 180 days.
The board did not, however,
discuss the question of the
division's jurisdiction over
the university's recruit-
ment policy in New York
state.

Meanwhile, the Ameri-
can Jewish Congress has
asked the Appelate Di-
vision of the New York
State Supreme Court to
bar recruiting by foreign
governments that dis-
criminates on grounds of
race or religion.
The case involves a job
application form, distrib-
uted by the United Arab
Emirates University to per-
sons responding to a faculty
recruitment ad published in
the Wall Street Journal.
The form asked- would-be
employees to state their
religion.
In, May 1979, the Ameri-
can Jewish Congress and
Dr. Martin Hochbaum —
director of the organiza-
tion's Commission on
Urban Affairs, who had re-
ceived the application form
when he answered the ad —
filed a complaint with the
State Division of Human
Rights objecting to the re-
quest to list religion on the
job form.
Joseph B. Robison, gen-
eral counsel of the Ameri-
can Jewish Congress, said
the AJCongress had re-
peatedly reminded the Di-
vision of Human Rights
that it was directed by law
to act within 180 days on
complaints filed with it.
Nevertheless, the division
did not act until June 11,
more than a year after the
complaint was filed.
The complaint was
dismissed by the Human
Rights Division on the
ground that it did not
have jurisdiction since
"the complaint herein is
directed against a foreign
state, its embassy and
state-owned university
not engaged in commer-
cial activity within tlw
United States."
