Enrollment at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem has reached a total “well over 9,000, the highest in its history,” Dr. Eliahu Elath, president of the University, reported here tonight. Dr. Elath addressed the third annual Scopus Award dinner of the American Friends of the Hebrew University.

Milton Handler, professor of law at Columbia University, received the award, the organization’s highest honor, “for his outstanding services to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.” United States Judge Simon H. Rifkind presented the award at the dinner. Principal speaker at the dinner was David Sarnoff, chairman of the board of the Radio Corporation of America, who urged the integration of the study of science with humanities as a new approach to education, from grade school to graduate school.
