Download PDF for this date

A new Swiss pavilion was formally opened today at the Weizmann Institute of Science at Rehovoth by Mrs. Vera Weizmann, widow of the late President of Israel. Present at the ceremony were a Swiss delegation and some 600 friends of the Institute.

The head of the Swiss delegation handed the keys to the new wing to Prof. I. Dostrowsky, head of the Isotope Department of the Nuclear Science Institute. The wing houses modern laboratories in which isotope research will be carried on. The Swiss delegation included many intellectuals and businessmen who raised funds in Switzerland to finance construction of the wing.
