"Dorms are high tech and
high tech is Technion" stu-
dent Ehud Saly told more
than 400 guests and suppor-
ters last week at the 34th
annual dinner of the Detroit
Chapter of the American
Society for Technion-Israel
Institute of Technology held
at Adat Shalom Synagogue.
Appealing on behalf of his
fellow students at the
Technion, Saly said two big
concerns of the students
there are dorms and student
aid. He thanked the Detroit
supporters for their con-
tinuing aid, and added that
a drive is on now to make
more of a home atmosphere
on campus.
To do that he said, there is
a need for recreation centers
and clubs on campus.
The evening's main
speaker, Brig. Gen (res.),
Benjamin Peled, substi-
tuted for the scheduled
speaker former Israel
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, who canceled his
visit bec
ause of what he
called the "parliamen-
tary situation in Israel."
Praising the Technion for
its graduates who become
scientists, engineers and
computer specialists, Peled
called the Technion "The
house from which we get
skilled people- and- lauded
what he said were its high
standards of training.
He added, "We are rich in
the most important raw
material — brain power.
Now we need to start an in-
ventory, to use our brain
power to produce high tech
products that we can use
and sell competitively."
The president of a huge
Israeli computer concern,
Peled said that "when Sili-
con Valley started 25 years
ago," referring to the area of
California known for com-
puter development, !Israel
had the same assets, but
didn't have the time or
priority to see that far." He
said it wasn't a mistake, but
an oversight.
He said many com-
puter materials and
components are man-
ufactured in Israel, but
the "sophisticated com-
ponents are bought in the
U.S. and Japan."
He said now Israel is look-
ing "for pr,ojects that will
bridge the gap between
basic research and applied
research.
"Israel doesn't need oil or
steel, but huge amounts of
grey cells. We need an
environment to produce our
ideas."
In his remarks following
the dinner, Joseph H. Jac-
kier, dinner chairman,
talked about the impor-
tance of technology to Is-
rael. He said, "Israel's
secret weapon is not her
military power. Her secret
weapon is brain power."
Dr. Joseph Epel,
president of the Detroit
chapter, reported the
Philip Slomovitz Chair in
Hebrew language at the
Technion is nearly com-
pleted.
Epel also praised the
work of the Technion 2000,

,

the young adult division of
the Detroit Chapter, and
Max Gill, field representa-
tive for the Technion.
The dinner was the occa-
sion to pay tribute to the
major contributors and
celebrate the completion of
the Benard L. Mass Michi-
gan Dormitory on the
Technion campus. In addi-
tion to Maas, contributors of
rooms in the dorm also were
honored.
Among them are: Theo-
dore and Mina Bargman
Foundation,. William M.
Davidson Fainily, Elson
and Shapiro Families, Dr.
and Mrs. Epel, Mr. and Mrs.
Alex' Etkin, Mr. and Mrs.
Salman Grand, Mr. and

and Mrs. Sam Rich and

governors of the Technion,
recited the invocation.
