U.S. Expert Says Israel Has Good Prospects for Use of Atomic Energy

An encouraging picture of the prospects for early use of atomic energy for peaceful purposes in Israel was presented here today at the meeting of the Board of Governors of the Israel Institute of Technology.

Dean Joseph Weill of the Engineering College of Florida University told the board that the world is on the brink of a new industrial revolution and that Israel lacks only one product with which it could participate in that revolution–fuel. Given the necessary power, Israel will apply nuclear energy to industrial purposes and will become one of the great industrial centers of the world. That time is not far off, he stressed.
