Ohio’s Governor-elect to Raise Funds for Wingate Institute in Israel

The Wingate Physical Culture Institute near Natanya will receive a new swimming pool through the efforts of Governor-elect James Rhodes of Ohio, who today affirmed a pledge he made two years ago that he would raise $75,000 for the purpose if he were elected Governor.

Mr. Rhodes reiterated the pledge to Haim Glibinsky, secretary of the Israeli Olympic Committee, who received a cable here today that the Governor-elect would raise the required funds from friends of the Wingate Institute in this country.
