Dizengoff Better, Will Attend Exhibit

After ten days of serious illness, Meir Dizengoff, mayor of Tel Aviv, has recovered sufficiently to attend the opening tonight of an art exhibition of the works of the Jewish artist Chana Orloff.

Hope had been abandoned for the mayor, who is seventy-four years old. Orthodox Jews see in Mr. Dizengoff’s recovery the hand of god and assert that the mayor has come back to life because of the prayers offered for him at the Wailing Wall.
