Israel Holds Onto Former President By RAYMOND J. CKOWLEY WASHINGTON (AP) - To naturalized Americans thinking of paying a visit to their old homelands, the State Department gives this urgent advice: "Check up beforehand, lest you get caught in a draft." A military draft, that is. The problem came up recently in the case of Samuel Cohen, 27, a Chicago educator. He went to Israel this past summer to study briefly—but he may have to stay another 1 \k years as a soldier. Cohen was born in Israel but became a naturalized American after he came to this country 12 years ago. The trouble is, the Israelis consider him still a citizen of their country. They are holding him for military service. U.S. diplomats are working to release him, with dubious prospects of success. The case illustrates the tangled International situation with regard to citizenship. What nationality you are may depend on where you are. The United States, for example, does not recognize dual citizenship. Once an alien takes the U.S. citizenship oath, he is considered an American—period. But Israel holds that an Israeli remains an Israeli until he formally renounces citizenship and this renunciation is accepted by the interior minister of Israel. Other countries have similar laws, but U.S. officials say the Israelis seem to be "stickier than most" in enforcing them. The United States has agreements with a number of countries, notably NATO nations, ironing out some citizenship problems. Several countries exempt men from conscription if they served in the U.S. armed forces in World War II. In general, though, the State Department advises that naturalized citizens planning trips to their native lands should check with SIDE GLANCES By Gill Fox "I'm happy to present you with this lovely door prize: a box of chocolates, courtesy La Mode Reducing Salon!"

This summer the club erected a stone marker in honor of servicemen in place of a large wood- consulates to see what they,may be getting into. There's another warning. If a naturalized citizen stays three years in the country of his origin, he may risk losing American citizenship. However, he may safely stay abroad as long as eight years if he hops from country to country. NEW SWEATER KIT WflM i I testes «!§ liiHlll flill .

By EDGAR MILLER WO DE JANEIRO <AP)-Luis Prestes Pinheiro, an accountant, stopped at a fish market to buy some shrimp. The price was 800 cruzeiros a kilogram—2.2 pounds. He found he had left his wallet at home and went back to get some money. When he returned the price on shrimp had gone up to 1,000 cru­ zeiros a kilo. To Pinheiro and millions of other Brazilians inflation is a nightmarish spiral of increasing prices which make it more and more difficult to make ends meet on outdistanced salaries. Living costs shot up 30.8 per cent in the first half of the year after rising 52.7 per cent in 1962, one of Brazil's worst inflation years. They are still going. Heaping woe on the economic picture was a report from the semi-official Getulo Vargas Foundation that economic growth this year would be only 2.4 per cent while the population would in crease 3.1 per cent. Population in creasing faster than the national production spells trouble. Brazil's budget deficit is expected to be from 600 billion to a tril lion cruzeiros. The cruzeiro, Brazil's monetary unit, smashed the 1,000 cruzeiros to the dollar barrier for the first time this month. Brazil has a $25.5-million debt $50 and $100 BONUS To Churches, Schools, Sororities and Organizations for distributing Watkins famous double strength vanilla, pepper or cinnai.ion.

Except for a few preliminary measures, the ambitious three year plan to slow up inflation and stabilize the economy never got off the ground. Finance Minister Carlos Carvalho Pinto insists, how* ever, that he still is working rig* orously within the general framework of the plan in an effort to make some order in Brazil's fuzzy financial-economic household Carvalho Pinto is confident the government can increase its rev* enue through tax reforms and other measures he has instituted. How well Brazi. fills up its foreign debt holes and withstands snowballing inflationary pressure could be decisive for the nation's economic future. As one foreign observer put it: "Brazil still is some distance from true economic chaos. But the distance is getting shorter every day."
