President and Mrs. Chaim Weizmann arrived here today from Israel. He was accompanied by his adjutant and his secretary. The Israeli chief of state was met at the airport by Andre Dominice, Swiss chief of protocol, as well as by members of the Israeli delegation to the Lausanne peace talks and Swiss Jewish leaders.

President Weizmann, who will undergo eye treatments, will be under the care of leading ophthalmologists in this country and will later vacation at Lake Lucerne. During his stay at the Hotel des Bergnes here, Israeli and Swiss flags will be flown from the hotel’s masts.
