President Truman Will Attend Dinner in Honor of Dr. Weizmann. White House Announces

President Truman will go to New York on February. 9 to address a testimonial dinner in honor of Dr, Chaim Weidman, President of Israel, the White House said today. The dinner will be held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

(In a message to the American people, Dr. Chaim Weizmann today emphasized that the friendship and support which President Truman and the American people have given to Israel “have been an encouragement beyond measure, and this will long be remembered in our annals.” He compared the Israeli fight for freedom with that of the American colonists. The Israeli President conveyed this message through the New York Herald tribune which today began serializing Dr. Weizmann’s autobiography, “Trial and Error.”)
