U.S. Delegation Leaves Today to Attend Dedication Ceremonies of Weizmann Institute

The American delegation which will attend the dedication ceremonies of the Weizmann Institute of Science at Rehovot, Israel, on Nov. 2 will sail for Tel Aviv tomorrow aboard the S.S. Queen Mary.

Gifts totalling $150,000 will be presented to the delegates, who will be headed by Dewey D. Stone, for delivery to the Institute. One of the gifts–a $100,000 check from the International Cancer Research Fund–will be used for the purchase of laboratory equipment for the Institute of Experimental Biology, scheduled to be completed in the spring.
