Parley, chalnmui of the Coca- Cola Export Corporation, said that in 1949, Fetaberg, with a group of associates, received ap¬ proval from the Coca-Cola Com¬ pany of his application to bottle Coca-Cola ta Israel. "Because of the difficult hard currency situa¬ tion at that time, Mr. Fetaberg and his associates were unable to get Israeli Government ap¬ proval and sulwequently with¬ drew their application ta 1950," the statement potated out, add¬ ing that "Mr. Feinberg has never lost his taterest and, as recently as March 31, predattag the cur¬ rent controversy, advised me of Ids continutag serious' taterest and renewed his request for a franchise." "IN REPLY TO Mr. Feta- berg's letter to me of March 31, a representative of the Coca-Cola Company advised him on April 1 that we would be pleased to discuss the matter with him upon his return from Israel ta mid- April," Farley dedared. He an¬ nounced that, last Friday, J. Paul Austta, president of the Coca- ¦Gola'Gompany.and Mr. Feinberg met together and "agreed to ex¬ change letters of tatent which is normal procedure when a corpo¬ ration enters Into negotiations to establish a new franchise. Morris B. Abram, president of the American Jewish Committee, was most helpful ta working with boh parties," he emphasized. Abram issued a statement de¬ claring that he had examtaed the file of correspondence be¬ tween Mr. Feinberg and the Coca-Cola Export Corporation, which goes back to 1949. "There is no evidence in that fUe, from then to the present, of any reluc¬ tance by Coca-Cola to do busi¬ ness in Israel with a respectable and stable group of tavestors,' the American Jewish Committee president declared. •• THE ANTI-DEFAMATION League of B'nal B'rith, which last week accused Coca-Cola bf bowtag to the Arab boycott ta denytag a franchise to Tempo Soft Drink Co., of Israel, said after Farley's announcement that it was "delighted" with the Coca- Cola decision. Israel aovemment To Grant FJUilIitteB to'0oca/-0ola Plant JERUSALEM, (JTA) — The Israel Government was expected hera to grtmt facilities for a Coca-Ctola plant ta Israel under regulations which encourage for¬ eign investors. In genera], tiie Government has not been en¬ couraging the establishment of tadustries aimed exclusively at production of goods for current consumption, and not exportable. However, it is generally believed that, should a Coca-Cola plant be established in a develoinnent area, the usual facilities for "ap¬ proved concerns" would be granted. Recently, the Zenith Company, of the United States, was granted plant facilities after It had agreed to establish a television set factory at either Beerslieba or ;.5lazsurethj,)|jp.th. of, whigh ,8reJU)L%-. eluded among development ar^eas. POEMS FROM GHETTO ON EXHIBIT HERE "Another day has gone for keeps Into the bottomless pit of time. Again it has wounded a man, held captive by his breth¬ ren. After dusk, he longs for bandages, for soft hands to shield the eyes from all the horrors that stores by day. But in the ghetto darkness too is kind to weary eyes|;Which all day long have had to watch." So begtas an exhibit currently on display ta the Jewish Center lobby, announced Mrs. Earl Sonensteta , chairman.of the re¬ cently organized Jewish Center Lobby Comniittee.
