Launch Drive to Raise $100,000 in America for Haifa Technical Institute

A campaign to raise $100,000 this year for the Hebrew Institute of Technology in Haifa was launched here over the week-end at a dinner arranged by the American friends of the institute. The sum of $25,000 was raised at the dinner, which was addressed by Brig. Gen. William H. Harrison, who has just returned from a tour of the Near and Middle East.

Gen. Harrison stressed the important part being played by Palestinian Jewish engineers with the British forces in North Africa. It was disclosed at the dinner that several thousand graduates of the Haifa Institute are now with the Transport and Supply Service Units of the British Eighth Army.
