An elaborate proposal for the establishment of a biological station and aquarium in Palestine to study the fauna of the Mediteranean, has been offered here by Dr. Walter Steinitz. According to his plan, studies would be conducted at the institution and courses of lectures given there. The Hebrew University and the city of Tel Aviv are reported as favorable to the project.
