(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

In view of the campaign which has recently been in augurated by the Revisionist Party in favor of the immediate development of the Hebrew University into a degree-giving institution for undergraduates in all departments, the office of the president of the Hebrew University states that the question of the future policy of the university in the matter of teaching and research has been the subject of an exhaustive inquiry by an authoritative sub-committee of the board of governors set up at the last meeting of the board.

On the basis of detailed information supplied by the present professors and the administration of the university, and with full consideration of the general position of Jewish students in Palestine and abroad, the “New Judea” here states, the committee has prepared a report with detailed recommendations which will be considered at the next meetings of the academic council and the board of governors of the Hebrew University to be held in the coming summer.
