television showed pictures of stu-
dents in Teheran burning the
American flag. He at once tele-
phoned his shop in Jerusalem to
air express to him in New York
200 Iranian flags. In partnership
with an American, he sold them to
the American public, each flag ac-
companied by a book of matches.
Not long ago, Ikmel's national
basketball team played two
games against the Russian team
