AT HARPER FURNITURE WE SAY...
"ALL LEATHER IS NOT THE SAME."

States Trade
With Israel

Los Angeles (JTA) — Wash-
ington is no longer the sole
address for official American
relations with Israel. A
growing number of in-
dividual states are entering
into economic, cultural- and
academic-exchange
agreements with the Jewish
state.
As of now, 21 states have
signed cooperative
agreements with Israel, and
not only states with large
Jewish populations like
California, New Jersey and
Florida.
Oklahoma, for instance, is
benefitting from Israeli
know-how in water reclama-
tion.
And Vermont is conduc-
ting joint projects with Israel
to boost dairy production.
The increase in such
bilateral arrangements is
one reason why the Ameri-
can Israel Public Affairs
Committee manned a booth
and gave a reception at the
recent annual conference in
San Diego of the National
Association of State Legis-
lators.
Another good reason for
AIPAC's presence is that a
considerable percentage of
the 1,500 state legislators at
the conference will sooner or
later run for Congress, ac-
cording to an AIPAC repre-
sentative who attended the
conference.
In the current Congress,
80 percent of the freshmen
served previously in their
state legislatures, the
AIPAC spokesman said.
In addition, many states
have passed laws supportive
of Israel. California, for in-
stance, enacted a law earlier
this year which forbids its
huge public employee pen-
sion fund from investing in
any foreign or domestic
company that complies with
the Arab economic boycott.
The warmest supporter of
Israel at the conference ap-
peared to be the national
president of the association,
Art Hamilton, minority
leader of the Arizona state
assembly and a prominent
figure in the African Ameri-
can community.
Mr. Hamilton told some
400 delegates at the AIPAC
reception that during his re-
cent trip to Israel he felt as if
he were going home.
Mr. Hamilton emphasized
that in entering bilateral re-
lations with Israel, the
states were helping them-
selves at least as much as
they were aiding the Jewish
state. ❑
