The American Advisory Committee of the Hebrew University, of which Felix M. Warburg is chairman, announces the appointment of Dr. Ben M. Selekman as director of the American office of the University. Dr. Selekman has been on the research staff of the Russell Sage Foundation for the past ten years, and is the author of “Sharing Management with the Workers,” “Employees’ Representation in Steel Work,” “Postponing Strikes,” and other studies in the industrial field.

The Committee also announces that Dr. B. Amira of the Institute of Mathematics of the Hebrew University has been invited by the International Congress of Mathematicians to represent the University, at their meeting in Bologna.

A catalogue of books on sport and games has just been issued by the He brew University library. The publication of the catalogue was made possible through the gift of Dr. Julius Jarcho of New York City, who also donated most of the books in this section of the library. Additional gifts have come recently through the Commonwealth Parliament of Australia, which is sending fifty volumes to be added to the library, as well as a complete set of historical records.

The journal of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine will devote one of its issues in the near future to a study made by Dr. S. Adler of the Microbiological Institute of the Hebrew University. Dr. Adler is now in Aleppo carrying out further experiments there. The results of a previous expedition of two months to Mesopotamia, under Dr. Adler’s direction, will be ready for publication in about six months.

Studies on the Sinai expedition of Dr. F. Bodenheimer of the Entomology Laboratory of the Institute of Palestine Natural History, and additional studies by Dr. A. Fodor of the Institute of Chemistry of the University, are being published in Germany, and will soon appear, the Committee announced.
