preme point intellectually of Is-
rael" where "science goes hand in
hand with beauty," has just been
published in Jerusalem by Weiden-
feld and Nicolson.
Editor of "Gateway to Science"

fairs involving the American and

Dewey D. Stone, chairman of the

containing 112 photographs in color
and black and white, is dedicated
to Meyer W. Weisgal, principal
architect and chief executive offi-
cer of the institute from its begin-
nings until his retirement at the
end of 1969, at age 75. The book
has been published as the culmi-
nating event in the year-long cele-
bration of the institute's 25th anni-
versary, which ended in December.
Stephen Spender, noted Brit-
ish poet and essayist, contributes
the lead article, "A Center of
Critical Values"; Nigel Calder,
distinguished British writer, au-
thor and editor, contributes an
essay "Rehovot in Perspective."
Other contributors are: Israel
President Zalman Shazar, who
wrote a preface to the book; Dr.
Albert B. Sabin, developer of the
Sabin oral polio vaccine, president
of the Weizmann Institute of Sci-
ence since January 1970; Dr. Isaac
Berenblum, internationally re-
nowned cancer authority, who
heads the institute's department of
experimental biology.
A short history of the Weizmann
Institute is by Rinna Samuel, au-
thor and free-lance journalist who
is editor of the Rehovot institute's
magazine. The book also contains
the roll of honorary fellows of the
institute, 76 in 1970, of whom 19 are
Nobel Laureates.
Spender sees the Weizmann In-
stitute as "being primarily dedi-

cated to science in its most disin-
terested, purest form, representing
the role that Israel may . play in
the Middle East, if and when there
is peace .. . It builds a bridge be-
yond specialization to the life of
which science is only a part."
Dr. Berenblum, reflecting on
21 years of association with the
Weizmann Institute since 1949,
attributes its attainment and sta-
ture in the forefront of the inter-

national scientific community, to
*he standards set up by Dr. Weiz-

mann; the organizational genius
of Meyer W. Weisgal and the
"freedom from scientific direc-
tion from above, enjoyed by in-
stitute scientists."
Dr. Calder selects for citation
pioneering contributions by Weiz-
mann Institute scientists in the
fields of: cancer research, protein
research, immunology, chemistry,
plant genetics, birth control,
deciphering the pattern of the vi-
brations of the earth and the
oceantides, new membranes for de-
salination, chemistry of the brain,
magnetism in medicine, a mecha-
no-chemical engine duplicating hu-
man muscle contraction and the
body's energy conversion system,
techniques for enlarging water re-
sources and for enabling better
climate prediction, for making new
compounds and new drugs, explor-
ation of the nature of matter,
and computerology.
