Cancer Expert Helps Launch Crusade
Some points about this year's Michigan Cancer Foundation
Crusade are made by Dr. Johannes Clemmesen (left), an international
authority on cancer from Copenhagen, as he stopped to chat at a press
luncheon Thursday. His audience is Mrs. Philip Slomovitz, wife of
the publisher of the Jewish News, and George W. Miller, president
of the Bank of the Commonwealth and this year's general crusade
chairman. For the first time in many years, observance of Cancer
Control Month takes on a personal meaning for families in this
community. Volunteers of the Michigan Cancer Foundation, working
closely with the foundation's research division, are ringing doorbells
to gather information which hopefully will eliminate a Number One
cancer killer of women—breast cancer. Questions that foundation
volunteers will deal directly with the homemaker, her immediate
family and the family history of the father of her children.

REHOVOT (JTA) — An opera-
tional budget of 22,000,000 Israeli
pounds ($7,333,000) was adopted
by the board of governors of the
Weizmann Institute of Science. The
instil* will receive an additional
9,000,000 pounds ($3,000,000) in
research grants and contracts from
various,_ governments and public
agencies outside Israel.
In a report presented to the
board of governors by a panel of
scientists, the institute was urged
to concentrate on particular areas
of research where results in the
past have been encouraging. The
commission, headed by Prof. J. B.
Wiesner, of the Massachusetts In-
stitute of Technology, submitted
the findings after 21/2 years survey-
ing the institute's work.
Earlier last weekend, ground-
breaking ceremonies were held at
the institute for a housing project
for new scientists to be named
Meanot Shine, after Mr. and Mrs.
Barnett Shine of England who con-
tributed funds for the project.

Dramatic Housing Experiment Built
by Israeli Attracts Attention at Expo
MONTREAL (JTA) — Visitors to Expo 67 were impressed by
Habitat, the dramatic housing experiment built by 28-year-old Israeli
architect Moshe Safdi and -sponsored and paid for by the Canadian
government. (It was described as the "permanent symbol and land-
mark" of the fair, by N.Y. Times architecture writer Ada Louise
Habitat is a group of one- and two-story homes arranged in a
cluster of pyramids and jutting boxes, vaguely resembling a stream-
lined version of the cliffside pueblo dwellings of American Indians
in the southwest.
It is considered to be one of the most impressive housing experi-
ments ever undertaken. Budget for the project came to $11,500,000.
Israel's beautiful pavilion at Expo was dedicated here last week
in a brief, 10-minute ceremony attended by Israel's envoy to Ottawa,
Ambassador Gershon Avner, leading representatives of Canadian
Jewry, Montreal civic authorities and top officials of the exposition.
The Israel Pavilion is located on the man-made Island of Notre
Dame. Three years in preparation, the exhibit traces the story of
the Jewish people and their eternal link with the land of Israel.
It depicts present-day Israel and the Jewish state's accomplish-
ments since its rebirth in 1948. Authorities here estimated that be-
tween 4,000,000 and 5,000,000 visitors will view the exhibit here in
the next six months.
The Dead Sea Scrolls are the focal attraction for Expo 67 visitors
when they enter the Israel Pavilion. Surrounding the Dead Sea Scrolls
in the entrance hall are other archaeological exhibits from Israel.
