Brig. Gen. (Res.) Yehudah
alevy,
president of the Bond's Organ-

ization, said that in addition to Herme-
lin's leadership participation in the
Bond effort in the United States, "he
will now bring his dynamic leadership
talents and energies to our campaigns
abroad as well."
Israel's Minister of Finance Yit-
zhak Moda'i called Hermelin. "Your
success in leading the Bond campaign
to a record $505 million achievement
in 1985 has -had a very positive impact
for Israel's economy. I am sure that
under your leadership, the Bond
Organization will achieve new record
results internationally. I look forward
to our close cooperation."
Hermelin also serves as an inter-
national co-chairman for tourism on
the "Operation Independence" Task

ture. Without addressing the matter of
the Lavi directly, Zakheim went pub-
lic in urging Israel to tighten its own
military planning and budgeting sys-
tem in order to acquire the best mili-
tary equipment, possible at the lowest
price. Israel, simply put, cannot afford
any large-scale mistakes.
"These efforts demand people and
time, and expertise and dedication of
the highest order," Zakheim said in a
carefully-prePared speech in Wash-
ington. "I found that my Israeli coun-
terparts are second to none in their
dedication and expertise, but are far
fewer in number (than in the U.S.) and
as a result, have far less time to devote
to critical program, system and cost
evaluation tasks. These are matters
