(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Dr. Selig Brodetsky, professor at the University of Leeds, and prominent anglo-Jewish mathematician, was given a farewell luncheon prior to his departure for the United States in the interests of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

The luncheon was given by the Zionist Executive and the Joint Zionist Council of London. Philip Guedalla, president of the Federation of English Zionists, presided.

Dr. Brodetsky, in his address, stated that he was invited by Dr. Weizmann to proceed to the United States for the purpose of interesting prominent American Jews in the work of the University and establishing relations between the Hebrew University and American universities.
