Dr. George Wise Installed As President of Tel Aviv University

Dr. George Wise of New York was installed last night as president of Tel Aviv University. The ceremonies at the university were attended by Mayor Mordechai Namir, U.S. Ambassador Walworth Barbour, the Mexican charge d’affaires and hundreds of university students.

In his address to the gathering, Dr. Wise, who is planning to settle here, announced that the university would do everything possible to aid students of limited means. Among the problems of first priority, he said, was the completion of a new campus in the north of the city to provide adequate facilities for students now studying in corridors and over-crowded classrooms.
