Connecticut House Passes Bill for Charter to Planned Jewish University

The Connecticut State House of Representatives here has passed a state bill authorizing the issuance of a charter to the newly proposed Jewish University of Connecticut. Senate passage of the bill, and the signature of the Governor, are still needed before the charter is granted.

Five incorporators, headed by Harold B. Yudkin, of Derby, Conn., were the applicants for the charter. The plans are to establish the university at Derby “or elsewhere within the State of Connecticut, ” in the next 10 years, after development of a multi-million dollar fund-raising campaign for the proposed school.
