42 American University Students Arrive in Israel for One-year Study

A group of 42 American college and university students arrived here today for the Hebrew University’s annual one-year American Student Program. Twenty-three of the students received scholarships, of which 13 were awarded by the Abe Wouk Foundation established last year by Herman Wouk, the American novelist.

The first contingent of 140 teenagers, part of a group of 280 American youngsters who will spend the summer at the Histadrut Camp in Israel, left New York by plane for Venice, where they will embark on a Mediterranean cruise for Haifa. (The summer camping program, which is sponsored by the National Committee for Labor Israel, enables the American youngsters to share their camp experiences and participate in cultural exchange with Israeli youth.)
