Welzmann institute Dedicates
Grad School, Residence, Offices

REHOVOTH — The Abraham
Feinberg Graduate School of
the Weizmann Institute of Science,
which will provide laboratories
and classrooms for the institute's
student community, was dedicated
here in the presence of members
of the Feinberg family and hun-
dreds of distinguished guests from
Israel and abroad.
A letter sent on the occasion of
the dedication ceremony by Presi-
dent Lyndon B. Johnson to Meyer
W. Weisgal, chairman of the in-
stitute's executive council, was read
by the American Ambassador, Wal-
worth Barbour. It stated:
"We share a common dream of
a world in which the only battles
are for educational excellence and
the only battlefields are in the
classrooms. Better education is a
worldwide challenge. Projects like
the Feinberg School will help meet
that challenge."
The ceremony was chaired by
Weisgal, who declared that the
aim of the school would be quality,
not quantity, and that it would
serve as a reservoir of talent both
for Israel and countries beyond
her shores.
The main address was given by
Mrs. Golda Meir.
Diplomas to 17 PhDs and 11
MScs were handed out by Prof.
Joseph Gillis and Mrs. Abraham
Feinberg. An honorary fellowship
of the Weizmann Institute was
conferred on Abraham Feinberg
by Prof. Igal Talmi, chairman of
the institute's scientific council.
Mrs. Feinberg cut the ribbon in
front of the main entrance to the
graduate school to signify the for-
mal opening of the builedng.
The Feinberg Graduate
covers an area of 2,500 sq. cr_ om-
prising teaching laboratories, lec-
ture halls, a library, common rooms
and service facilities.
A handsome residential com-
plex for visiting scientists was
inaugurated April 12 at the
Weizmann Institute.
Donors of the buildings are the
Samuel Lunenfeld and Reuben
Kuin families.
Weisgal, recalling his association
for more than three decades with
Lunenfeld, first in Canada and
more recently in Switzerland, paid
tribute to Lunenfeld's continuing
support for the Weizmann Insti-
tute over two decades.
The Lunenfeld and Kunin Build-
ings to House Visiting Scientists
can accommodate 24 families in 16
furnished one-bedroom and eight
two-bedroom apartments. They will
serve to facilitate the growing ex-
change of scientists and scientific
knowledge between the Institute
and other centres of research and
learning all over the world.
Later, tributes poured in for
Dewey D. Stone, chairman of the

Atomic Energy Unit
Names Eshkol Prexy

Minister Levi Eshkol assumed the
presidency of the Atomic Energy
Commission replacing Prof. Ernst
David Bergman, who resigned after
heading the commission since it
was set up 14 years ago.
Prof. Bergman had repeatedly
asked that his resignation be ac-
cepted over differences on policy
and budgetary matters. Prog. Berg-
man, who also had been director
of the Defense Ministry's scientific
department since 1948, is expected
to continue his teaching duties at
the Hebrew University.
He submitted his resignation
more than a year ago, reportedly
partly because of personal political
convictions which were not defined,
butt was asked to stay until a re-
placement could be found. Prof.
Israel Dostrovsky will assume Prof.
Bergman's duties in the Defense
