The ashes of the late Dr. Lincoln Hale, former director of the United States Operations Mission in Israel, may be laid to rest in Israel, it was learned today. Dr. Hale suffered a heart attack and died in New York last week while delivering a lecture on Israel.

The Premier’s Office has received information that Dr. Hale’s widow wishes to bring his ashes to Israel. This may be in accordance with his last wishes.
