Hebrew U. marks Golden Anniversary

of the Hebrew University
will be held in Jerusalem.
Guests will include individ-
uals who were present at
the historic opening ceremo-
nies.

JERUSALEM — The
Hebrew University of Jeru-
salem will celebrate the
50th anniversary of its open-
ing in March.
Its board of governors,
convening for their annual
meeting, will take part in
the jubilee events including
a concert of the Jerusalem
Symphony Orchestra with
Isaac Stern as soloist, and
the unveiling of a Jubilee
Wall in the Mount Scopus
ampitheater where the En-
glish statesman Lord Bal-
four declared the university
open on April 1, 1925.
Another series of festivi-
ties will center around the
July Convocation when a
world conference of Friends

At its opening in 1925,

the university was com-
posed of three research
institutes — chemistry,
microbiology and Jewish
studies — and the nucleus
Of the Jewish National and
University Library. Three
years later, three new in-
stitutes had been added,
and teaching began. The
first master of arts degrees
were awarded in 1931, and
the first PhD in 1936.

By 1947, Hebrew Univer-
sity had grown. to the stat-
ure of a large and well es-
tablished research and
teaching institution. It had
faculties of humanities And
science, a pre-faculty of
medicine, a school of agri-
culture (with its own cam-
pus in Rehovot), a depart-
ment of education, the
library, a university press
and an adult education cen-

ter. Student enrollment
topped 1,000 and there were
some 200 members of fac-
ulty.
During the War of Inde-
pendence the university had
no home, but studies re 7
sumed, in dozens of build-
ings widely scattered ar-
ound Jerusalem. Under
these difficulties two new
faculties — law and medi-
cine — were inaugurated. A
few years later, the facul-
ties of social sciences-and
dental medicine and the
School of Pharmacy opened.
Throughout those diffi-
cult years with makeshift
premises and insufficient
equipment, the university
operated with the attitide
that the situation was tem-
porary. A return to -Mount
Scopus was expected.

When it became obvious
that there was no end in
sight to this "temporary"
state of affairs, land was
acquired on Givat Ram in
western Jerusalem and
building of a new campus
began there in 1953.

Givat Ram was officially
dedicated in 1958, part of Is-
rael's 10th anniversary cele-
brations, even as the univer-
sity was turning its
attention outwards and set-
ting up branches, destined
for ultimate independence,
in Tel Aviv, Haifa and Beer-
sheba. The new medical cen-
ter in Ein Kerem, built at
the same time as Givat
Ram, was by then also in
use.
But Mount Scopus re- .
mained the heart of the
university. In 1968, the 50th
anniversary of the laying of
the cornerstones was cele-
brated with the laying of
foundation stones for a new
university city to arise on
Mount Scopus.
Enrollment has reached
18,000. There are today
seven and eight schools on
the university's four cam-
puses.

Nearly 60,000 bache-
lor's, master's and doc-
tor's degrees have been
awarded to' date. A center
for pre-academic studies
has, since 1963, served as a
last-chance program to
combat cultural disadvan-
tage among Israel's immi-
grant youth, the school for
overseas students has,
since 1970, accommodated
young people from around
the world.

This jubilee year opened
with the planting on Mount
Scopus of a memorial forest
for the sti , dents, teachers
and workers who have fallen
in Israel's wars — including
124 in the Yom Kippur War.

MADRID (ZINS) — The
Hebrew daily Ha'aretz re-
ports that political circles in
Madrid have begun to make
contact with representatives
of Israel.
One of the reasons is that
Spain is in conflict with the
Arab world over the Span-
ish Sahara; also Spain's
economy is experiencing a
severe crisis because of the
sky-rocketing cost of petro-
leum.
According to the report, it
is likely that some ranking
Spanish officials would
make an unofficial visit to
Israel if invited by the gov-
ernment in Jerusalem. It is
expected that- a formal
change in relations between
Israel and Spain will occur
as soon as General Franco
relinquishes power.
