great advantage over other producers Is that she Is nearest to Europe's nuirkets. The distance between Libya and Hars eilles is 2,000 miles compared with 3,200 miles from the oil terminals on the Lebanese aiki S^lan cmsts, and 9,000 miles from the Persian Gulf around Africa. Libyan crude oil is of hi^ quality and much soughtafter.
Even if the Suez Canal Is reopened,^ Libyan oil wOl have a fireigbt charge ad-, vantage over Persian oil shipped through the Canal since it will not have to pay Canal dues.

A. New Measures andMeanis for the Encouragement of Capital Investments
From the point of view, of investments^ the last two years may be divided into three periods: slow down of activity stemming flrom the general economic situation^ in Israel; b) active search for new ways and means to stimulate investments; c) a new departure In the approach to. cj^ital investments.
The first pieriod, characterized by the general mood of the economy at the time gave rise to a reassessment of the approach to capital Investments, to a campaign to develqp those branches of industry which would confer special advantages on the Israel econdmy, vdA to a realization that achange was necessary in the form of encouragement offered under the Law for the Encouragement of Capital Investments In order to stimulate the interestof thepoten-tial investor. According, out of some 240 branches of industry, a selection of 17 'preferential* branches was made.
The Ministry of Commerce and Industry made special surveys on each of these "preferentiar' branches and the Investment Authority published summa.-ry reports for the use of potential Investors. The Authority's overseas representatives have already received these reports. In ad-dlUoh a list of 50 Israeli enterprises has been drawn up, interested and able to admit foreign partners.
At the same time, amendments were preyed to the Law for the Encouragement of Capital Investroients and were duly passed. These amendments include a financial grant to every approved

Hasidism in America, have become drug addicts.
Equally revealing of the dimensions of the problem of drugjjjuse among Jews was the estimate that about one out of every five "hippies" in the Haight-Asbury section of San Francisco, the "hippy capital of America," is a Jew. The use of all kinds of drugs among the "hippies" is widespread.
These Illustrations of what
was called a "plague" e-merged at the first conference on the subject of addiction among Jews, sponsored by the Commission on Synagogue Relations of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of Greater New York.
The participants faced the problem of incomplete data on the number of Jewish addicts. Usual sources of such statistics, such as arrests and hospital care, cannot provide an accurate picture because of the tendency of Jewish families to subsidise their children's addiction, and to hide the problem from agencies dealing with it, the meeting was told.
Rabbi Shlomo Twersky, the prc^amme director of the WilliamsburgY.M.-^Y.W. H.A., spoke of the "considerable number" of pious and Orthodox youths in his neighr bourhood trho were using barbiturates^ sedatives, "goofballs" ("pep" and ^s pee d' pills) and e v e n heroin. ;

NEW CANTOR IN TORONTO. - Cantor Eph-ralm F; Rosenberg, who will occupy the post of Cantor of Toronto's Beth Sholom Synagogue, com-rnenclng in September.
Cantor Rosenberg, who is a native of Roumania, studied voice In Europe and has served, as chief cantor in Tel Aviv and London <En9.», ^i«*vei hll. cantorlal pulfJit In The
Bronx, Now York.
"Their main problem," he said, was the "religious burden. Being addicts meant they: had to violate all the principles they were brought up on. They had to light a fire on the Sabbath, for example. And. of< course, they had to steal to support their habit.''
Why had they become addicts in the firstplace? Rabbi Twersky said that "they felt their homes were too rigid, the pressure to conform and achieve too great, and they were tired of that way of life."
The demands made by a Williamsburg Hasidic father on his son, he said, were far greater than these of other Orthodox groups.
This pattern of too much authority at home contrasted sharply with the portrait of the Jewish addict as a product of an over^protective home, as drawn by the other speakers.
Adolph Wasser. the executive director of the East New York (Brooklyn) Y.M. H.A., spoke of his not unusual eq)erlence "of being reprimanded by parents for having exposed their offspring to the reality of the Holocausts The Jewisb mother feels there lis no need e3?)ose her child to such 'horror' stories forfearthat it may be a traumatic experience and may affect the psyche of her child."
The attitude of the Jewish parents: to their children's addiction was one of shame and guilt, and fear that their secret would be revealed, the participants agreed.
Haifa, (JCNS!). - The West Banktobacco crops hasbeeh termed as the 'best ever" this year in the rich Yabad area, west of Jenin, by the town's Deputy Mayor. He. said it was the best in living memory and that the peas-^ ants had doubled the tobacco area to 4,000 dunams (about 1,000 acres) since restrictions imposed by Jordan in the past no Iraiger applied.
The Jordan; Government bad practised discrimination It West Bank growers. East Bank farmersli ee hand in cultivation but applying arbitrary quotas on the west Bank.
Israeli farm instructors showed the.peasants how to improve cultivation and combat diseases and, although not all the fields capable of producing.UAmcco were worked for lack' of manpower, the yield/has so far doubled. / /
Tobacco is beini paid for according to \ quality and about 70 per cent is con-
sidered to be of \ the best grade. Prices now \^btained are about 20 per cent above:, those paid previously by the Jordaiuans. Farther expansion of tobacco cultivated areas is expected next year.
Industrial enterprise, at the rate of 20 to 33.3 per cent of the sum Invested in fixed ass6ts, varying according to the, location of the industry. There is no doubt that the tools now at our disposal for the encouragement of capital investment are far superior to any we have had before. New explanatory brochures haive been issued^ so that our representatiyes abroad are able to present potential investors with a detailed list of industries and products in which we are interested. The field of investment activity has also changed. There is a shift from bulUUng to electronics, from laundries to castings and dies, from looms and spindles to' ready-made garments, furs and leather products, from heavy chemicals and pesticides, from heavy Industry to science-based industries. At the same time we also make greater demands upon the investor. Since the domestic demand for most industrial products is already covered, the new hulustrles are required to export an increasing share of their ou^ut This means that together with the investment we also ask the investor to secure the necessary market outlets. At the same time, however, the investor canbenefitfrom special advantages which may amount to as much as 80 per cent of the total investment in fixed assets (one third in the form of a financial grant and the rest in the form of long-term loans).
The investor who sets up an independei^ enterprise in
Israel Is bound to gain, since he is able to use relatively low-cost labour (especlaUy at the higher eschelons) and highly-develqped research institutes; mbreoever, he Is not operating in a backward industrial country. Adequate profits from his Investment are therefore assured.
B. The Results
The efforts made during the past year and a half have begun to show definite results.
1. The number of projects received from abrcnd has
increased. Over 120 projects are now being processed. 2. The number of potential investors visiting the country and investigating matters on the spot has also increased. During the last year from January until December 1967, 230 potential Investors have come here at the instigation of the Investment Aumority-the large majority from the United States -as opposed to 106 during 1966. During the second half a year, from July until December 1967, when the Continued on Page 8
