Download PDF for this date

Nearly 150 students have already been enrolled for the fall sessions of the Hebrew University at Jerusalem, according to figures released by the registrar and made public here by the American Friends of the Hebrew University.

Over 400 inquiries from prospective students, representing Palestine and 24 other countries, have been received so far this year and a student enrollment at least twice that of last year is indicated. Poland, where the numerus clausus is rigidly enforced, sent 236 inquiries to the university. Eighty-four were received from young men and women in Germany, all of whom have completed their secondary education.
