Plane to mobilize American engineers and technologists in support of the state of Israel will be formulated at a two-day annual conference of the American Technion Society which opens here tomorrow.

Delegates from 23 cities in the U.S. and Canada will also consider a proposal to set up a $1,000,000 fund for the Technion in Haifa, Israel’s only Institute of Technology, in memory of the 66 graduates and students of the institution killed in the Arab-Israeli war.
