AJCongress Pressuring Firms to
Halt M.E. Lobbying for Reagan

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The American Jewish Con-
gress on Wednesday said it
was satisfied with agree-
ments it reached with nine
leading U.S.-based corpora-
tions that shareholders
would be informed of the ex-
tent of the corporations'
lobbying efforts on behalf of
the 1981 AWACS arms
package sale to Saudi
Arabia and that a number of
these corporations would no
longer engage in lobbying
activity on behalf of U.S.
Middle East policy in the fu-
ture.
AJCongress President
Howard Squadron, in mak-
ing the announcement, also
disclosed that one of the 23
corporations targeted in an
AJCongress project to re-
veal the extent of corporate
lobbying for Mideast policy,
was solicited directly by
telephone by officials in the
White House to lobby Se-
nate members for approval
of the arms sale. Congress
approved the arms package
in November 1981.
According to William
Maslow, general counsel of
the AJCongress and coor-
dinator of the project, the
Dallas-based Halliburton
Corp., which he claimed has
no direct interests in the
Middle East, was persuaded
by the Administration to
involve themselves in lob-
bying efforts "because they
were led to believe that ap-
peasing the Saudis on the
sale was critical to the U.S.
economic and political
policies." He added that this
perception "was wrong both
on economic and political
grounds."
The project, an-
nounced in December,
operates_ through share-
holders' resolutions
submitted by AJCon-
gress members who own
stock in the targeted cor-
porations requesting that
management report on
the nature and cost of the
lobbying efforts and
seeking agreement "that
they will not in the future
spend corporate funds
for efforts of this kind."
A corporation receiving a
resolution from a share-
holder is required to include
the text in the proxy state-
ment it distributes to its
shareholders in advance of

Purim

By MADOLYN ROSENTHAL

Purim, a happy holiday is
here
And childhood memories make
it very dear.
As we recall, Sunday school plays
were a tradition,
How we kids would flock for
an audition.
There was beautiful Queen Esther
with her crown of gold
So tall and regal a sight to
behold.
Then there was Haman, that
treacherous man
Everyone rejoiced to see him
hang.
So, as these holidays come by
We find a tear in our eye
As we recall our childhood days.

Reform to Meet in Israel

NEW YORK — Reform
Jewish leaders from around
the world will gather in
Jerusalem at the 22nd in-
ternational conference of
the World Union for Pro-
gressive Judaism, June
27-July 5.
The delegates, represent-
ing Reform and Liberal
synagogues in 25 countries,
will address four major is-
sues:
• A report by a 35-
member commission on the
attitudes and relationships
of their communities to Is-
rael;
• An analysis and
evaluation of anti-

Semitism and the status
of Jewish security in the
25 countries represented
in the WUPJ;
• A report on the status of
the Reform movement in Is-
rael;
• An address on the con-
ference theme — "Diversity,
Within Unity" — given by
Rabbi Herman Schaalman,
president of the Central
Conference of American
Rabbis.

There is nothing in the
universe that I fear, but
that I shall not know all my
duty, or shall fail to do it.
—Mary Lyon
