Israel Govt. Studies Ways
to Aid Foreign Students

net has decided to take measures
to expand facilities for foreign
students at Israel's institutions of
higher learning. The matter will
be studigd by Deputy Minister Yi-
gal Alldn, who is also minister' of
immigrant absorption.

All universities and many paro-
chial schools in Israel receive gov-
ernment subsidies. However, they
claim to be unable to accommo-
date more than 5.000 overseas stu-
dents presently in the country.
The problem which Alton , will
undertake to solve involves hous-
ing shortages, the need for special
Hebrew classes for foreigners and
a broadening of various activities
and facilities which are not necys-
sary to the majority of Israeli stu-
dents who live at home.
