THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Technion's Technological Achievements
Viewed Major Aims in Israel's Progress

Constantly recurring O13s--=
tacles, including damaging
aspects of warfare, have not
interrupted the notable
achievements of the Techn-

ion, and they continue to
emphasize the progress in
Israel's record of scientific
and cultural progress,
former Israel Supreme
Court Justice Joseph
Landau stated on a brief
visit here last week.
Judge Landau, who was
the presiding judge of the
three-man tribunal at the
trial of Adolf Eichmann,
conferred with Detroit offi-
cers and board members of
the Detroit Chapter of the
American Technion
Society.
When he was Haifa dis-
trict judge some 25 years
ago, Judge Landau was
chairman of the Technion

since then retained the ac-

"We have gained world
recognition in that
status," Judge Landau
said, "in engineering and
multiple technological
aims we have achieved."
Judge Landau stated that
Technion is symbolic of the
spirit of Israel — treating as
a priority the cultural aims
of the Jewish people and the
aspirations to contribute
toward scientific advance-

JOSEPH LANDAU

ment in the world society.
Conceding the obstacles
caused by wars, notably the
current Lebanese situation,
he added that while stu-
dents either interrupt their
studies while serving in the
army, and as reservists,
teaching proceeds, learning
is aspired to and the Israeli
higher institutions of learn-
ing are treated with great
respect.
This, he said, is evident in
the student body of 22,000
in the seven-branched in-
stitutional university that
is represented in Technion,
including the elementary
department.
Judge Landau de-
plored the yerida, the
exodus of numerous Is-
raelis from Israel in re-
cent years, but he
foresees a drastic
change, as evidenced by
recent developments,
many returning to their
Israeli homes.
The devotion to the cul-
tuial needs and anxiety for
uninterrupted progress has
kept Technion tuition fees
on a low level, Judge
Landau said.
He expressed the hope
that assistance in expand-
ing and developing the
Technion with generosity
from American Jewry will
be as uninterrupted as the
Israeli devotion to learning
and contributions to sci-
ence, as well as in literary
and spiritual aims, and be
veritable boons for world
Jewry and for mankind.
Judge Landau has
served on the Israel Sup-
reme Court since 1953. He
received his law degree
in 1933 from the Univer-
sity of London. In the
same year he arrived in
pre-state Israel and
entered law practice. In
1940 he was appointed by
the British government
as a magistrate in Haifa.
During the following
years he was active in the
Hagana. With the estab-
lishment of the state of Is-
rael, he was named judge of
the district court in Haifa,
the main court in the north-
ern part of the country. His
elevation to the Supreme
Court in Jerusalem came in
1953.
Judge Landau was first
elected chairman of the
Technion's board of gover-
nors in 1956 and re-elected
in 1959. Last year he was
again called to head the
board.
