Download PDF for this date

More than 1,500 guests, each paying $250 per plate, will attend the annual Weizmann Dinner tomorrow evening at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel at which Adlai Stevenson, Nobel Prize winner Prof. Niels Bohr, U.S. Solicitor General Simon Sobeloff, and Israel Ambassador Abba Eban will be the principal speakers. The proceeds of the dinner will go to the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel.

The dinner will be marked by a ceremony dedicating the electronic laboratories contributed to the Institute by Benjamin Abrams of New York. The doors of the new laboratories will be opened in Israel by an electronic impulse triggered at the dinner here by Mr. Abrams.
