"Perhaps the fastest
growing department at the
Technion is Computer Sci-
ence, which in 1980 was
elevated to the rank of a full
Faculty. Between 1973 .and
1981 it quadrupled the
number of students
enrolled. Staff and space
have had to be increased ac-
cordingly."
A transportation re-
search institute, formed in
1978, has assistance from
the Henry Ford II Fund for
transportation research,
and is among the Technion
aspects acclaimed• in the Al-
pert book.
Other achievements_ in
science and technology are
reviewed by the author.
"Thus far," Alpert notes,
"assisting in the search for
solutions of national prob-:
lems in the fields of eco-
nomic, scientific and social
development in the state of
Israel, the raising of the
standard of living of its citi-
zens and the search for
methods of facilitating Is-
rael's integration into the
Middle East," are among
the contributions made by
the Technion programming.

ignited it, stood far back and
kept curiosity seekers at a
distance. The barrel
exploded with a mighty
roar, shattering windows
and causing damage to the
Jewish homes on both sides
of the road. Pdrhaps this is
what the officer had in-
tended.
"The source of the
bomb could hardly have
been a secret. Another at-
tempt to get at Bet Najada
was through - an auto-
matic wagon devised by
Yehuda Naot, a Technion
staff member, who had
for some years been
engaged in producing in-
genious and successful
devices of various kinds
for the Hagana. The
wagon was to be lowered
by pulley across Wadi
Rushmiyah.
"It was never used, and
for some time it remained in
the Technion courtyard, an
unknown and forgotten
relic of an era. More than
ever before the Technion
was becoming the nerve
center of the defense ac-
tivity."
Thus, a great work, serv-
ing reborn Israel loyally
and effectively, serving "as
a bridge from the history of
the past, over the present, in
continuity into the as yet

unrecorded future," pro-
vides an immensely sig-
nificant historic work.
A great work, about an
academic gem, is thus por-
trayed by an able and

.

authoritative author. It is a
volume to be cherished as a
part of the most importantly
compiled Israeli history
analyses.
