Ben Gurion Recovers from Pneumonia; Advised to Remain in Bed

Premier David Ben Gurion has recovered from a case of pneumonia and will remain in bed for another few days on the advice of his physicians, it was learned here today.

Pneumonia set in after the Premier left his bed last week despite a heavy cold in order to participate in the Cabinet discussion and a Parliamentary debate on the question of Israel troop withdrawals from the Gaza and Akaba areas. It is possible that Mr. Ben Gurion will remain in bed through Sunday when the next regular weekly meeting of the Cabinet will be held.
