The cornerstone for an International Students Center, a project sponsored by the American Women’s League for Israel, was laid yesterday at the Hebrew University.

The ceremony for the center, which will cost $375, 000, was attended by Mrs. Rachel Ben Zvi, wife of Israel’s President, who recalled the early days of the League’s activities in Israel and thanked Mrs. Harry Cahane, president of the League, for the organization’s continued interest in Israel.
