Stone, chairman of the board. Mr. Feinberg, who was previously chairman of the national council of the American Committee, was inducted into office yesterday at a brief ceremony held in the home of Senator Herbert H.

Congratulating Mr. Feinberg upon the assumption of his new post, Senator Lehman pointed out that “the fostering of the scientific program of the Weizmann Institute of Science would accelerate the development of Israel as a true sister democracy to the United States which has done so much to facilitate its progress towards independence.”
