To Establish Library at Hebrew University Named After Chaim Arlosoroff

The Chaim Arlosoroff Memorial Library, which will be established in memory of the late Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff, noted Zionist labor leader who was murdered in Tel Aviv on June 16, will house works dealing with settlement and colonization problems, according to an announcement by Dr. A. S. W. Rosenbach, president of the American Friends of the Hebrew University.

The reading hall of the University Library will be equipped and furnished by means of a bequest of 5,000 pounds from the late Morris Symonds, of Sdyney, New South Wales. New gifts announced for the library include 750 volumes of recent German fiction, donated by the Jewish Students’ Association of Berlin; 1,200 pamphlets and 200 volumes dealing with Palestinian agriculture problems, donated by Mrs. Akiba Ettinger, and the archives of the bacteriologist Waldemar Mordecai Wolff Haffkine, from his friends.
