A dental school will soon be constructed at the Hebrew University with the assistance of American and Canadian dentists, University president Prof. Benjamin Mazar announced here last night at ceremonies formally inaugurating the University’s new 175-acre campus. Dr. J. Sherman, president of Alpha Omega Fraternity, the American and Canadian dental fraternity, presented a $200, 000 check to Dr. Mazar.

Premier David Ben Gurion, who addressed the ceremonies, announced that unless the United Nations Secretariat and the State Department and British Foreign Office, which had recently pressed Israel in relation to the Independence Day parade in Jerusalem, made some progress with Jordan to implement the Israel-Jordan agreement on the University and Hadassah Hospital Israel would act on its own to re-open the institutions.
