Hebrew University Hopes to Inaugurate Medical Facility in Near Future

Fifty students will study medicine at the Hebrew University within the next three years, it was predicted here yesterday by Dr. Werner Senator, business director of the university, at a press conference during which he revealed that already $3,900,000 has been pledged towards extension of the institution’s science faculty.

A total of $3,500,000 has been pledged by the Hadassah and the Friends of the Hebrew University in the United States; $300,000 by Canadian Jewry and $100,000 by the Histadruth in Palestine, Dr. Senator said. He also revealed that the memorial to the late Brigadier Charles Orde Wingate, killed in Burma last year, will probably take the form of a central building for the university, Prime Minister Churchill and Prenior Smuts have consented to become patrons of the Wingate memorial drive, Dr. Senator said.
