Twenty-nine nuclear scientists from ten different countries today began a four-month course in the biological effects of radiation which is being held in the building housing Israel’s atomic reactor at Nahal Sorek, south of here.

The course, which is the first of its kind to be held anywhere, is sponsored by the United Nations Atomic Energy Agency and the Israel Atomic Energy Commission.
