Notes An American Clergyman Visits Israel

Earl Honder Tomlin, a Presbyterian minister and the Executive Secretary of the Rhode Island Council of Churches, is on a tourist trip to Israel with other members of the clergy and members of the teaching profession. He is interviewed as to his visit and the sights he and his group have seen and people they have met. The radio station, Kol Israel, interviews Rev. Tomlin along with some Israeli citizens and records the interchanges about the lives of the citizens of their new country.
